Fine pitch and thick copper

Electronics Forum | Wed Dec 08 04:19:16 EST 1999 | pascal MATHIEU

I am working in electronic automotive industry and today we are facing to a very serious problem : if we want to use a PCBoard with a copper thickness of 90�m + fine pitch circuit (0.65mm, 0.5mm) the supplier(several) of the PCB has some trouble t

If I am putting chip capacitors on a .063 FR4 board, what size package should we stay away from to avoid cracking? If I use 2 mil copper on the outside layers of a PCB, am I limited to what pitch of parts I can use? Specifically, will using 0603

How large of chip capacitor can we use reliably? I��ve heard they tend to crack. I��ve also heard if you pre heat the larger chip caps (1812 and above) before vapor phase reflow, they won��t crack. If I use 2 mil copper for a power supply board, a

Ceramic capacitors larger then EIA size 1812 are known to be very susceptible to thermal shock damage due to their large ceramic mass.

hi Bob, Thanks for the info. I understand your comments, but I am looking for specific guidance, If I am putting chip capacitors on a .063 FR4 board, what size package should we stay away from to avoid cracking? (I realize this is dependent on h

Hi CW, Regarding orientation, yes, your diagram is right - see the following link for confirmation. http://search.murata.co.jp/Ceramy/image/img/A18X/C2EB3C.PDF Regarding information on bending strength you want to talk to your local Murata office

Hi CW, Larger chip caps can be susceptable to cracking, but mainly this is due to handling - flexing of boards is the main culprit (the part being mechanically joined at both ends to the board). PCB's usually flex easiest along one axis, and larger

Dennis, I've seen this before, and in our case we didn't need to seal the edges because there was no concern of shorting or anything in the end product, this is a choice you will have to make, Does your end product have any protrusions or mounting h

Hi Pascal, 0,65mm pitch normally isn�t much of a problem. With 90�m CU I don�t have any experience but would like to know what deviation from nominal value for the pads you get with different PCB-deliveries. In short, for the standard Cu=35�m we se

distance from the edge Non-plated mounting hole and with copper pads ?

Electronics Forum | Fri Oct 26 05:03:17 EDT 2018 | farouk225

Hi everybody, I have a question about the minimum distance to leave beteween a non non-plated mounting hole with copper pads and the edge of the PCB. Is there any formula or rule to apply ? For example for a hole of diamater equals to 5.6mm which
