OSP PCBs full name
Organic Solderability Preservative, or OSP is a method for Coating printed circuit boards.

OSP PCBs definition
It uses a water-based organic compound that selectively bonds to copper and protects the copper until soldering.

PCB coating aim
During the PCB manufacturing process, exposed copper traces must be treated with an anti-corrosion coating.

HASL coating board info
Traditionally, it is coated with solder by Hot Air Solder Leveling (HASL).
The HASL finish prevents oxidation of the underlying copper and therefore guarantees a solderable surface.

OSP coating VS. HASL coating
Although this is a sound approach, Organic Solderability Preservatives (OSP’s) have become prevalent in the electronics industry as an alternative to the HASL process.

Even though this is a reliable surface finish method, care must be taken during the SMT process to minimize surface thickness degradation, particularly due to reflow and cleaning.
