On the basis of construction trade L. Skoda converted the causation of shrinkage cracks to also explain the disturbances within solder joints. 

The unequal heat dissipation of a solder joint appears analogous to premature evaporation of water (-> volume shrinkage) causing anomalies within the material. 

Handling the very high requirements for aviation- and space electronics and multiple certified, Skoda published empirical studies and developed a novel system and soldering technique. 

With the Convergence Pad as a PCB Layout-conception, Skoda himself registered for a patent and provides a highly efficient and innovative solution for any production appliance.

Furthermore, the working principle therein opens up new approaches to process engineering for reflow and wave soldering processes.
