Flex cracking under the terminations is generally regarded as one of the primary causes of failure of ceramic chips. If you can see cracks in the solder joints from board flex, those chips are certainly strongly suspect, and you must assume there is

Aluminium capacitor rotation after soldering

Hi Myriam, I think we may need some more information. Is the Electrolytic (Aluminum) Capacitor placed more than once per board? If so, are all locations twisting? This would typically be caused by a thermal imbalance that could be design induced. (u

Same pattern of capacitor crack

We have seen a similar problem. Turned out to be mechanical stress on the component caused by the method of location and clamping at ICT. Where is the component located on the assembly? Poorly adjusted clamping pillars on clamshell fixtures can cause

Yeo, These are possible rootcause of that defect and you can evaluate. 1. Orientation of the capacitor, maybe the cap is located behind big component. 2. Reflow profile, check the profile on that side. 3. Yes, check also the mounting force. Philip

As an alternative theory to the boards being damaged in the wave soldering process, it's possible that the panels are being handled in a way that flexes the panel and breaks the capacitors. In this possibilty, we'd expect capacitors in specific loca

production lot is 4000pcs.About 70% of capacitors are out of tolerance ( +/-20%).There are 3pcs C=10u per PCB, in different location.Samsung capacitors wich we use are 1,5 years old - i checked this information from our supplier " Rutronik ".I have

Identify [smd resistor?]

It's a capacitor, not a resistor. From the datasheet and pin locations I'd guess at nothing more than a decoupler in the circuit. hard to tell for certain what package size it is, either 0805 or 0603 by the look of it. A 100nF 25v capacitor would p
