cap size and copper thickness vs part size questions

Electronics Forum | Mon Nov 07 11:26:23 EST 2005 | CW

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

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

cap size and copper thickness vs part size questions

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

Time and temp in lead and lead-free reflow

Electronics Forum | Mon Jul 28 14:30:22 EDT 2008 | grics

Take a look at this. Remember, these are only guidlines and can not replace any paste specs. As Real Chunks said, a profiler will be of HUGE help. We use this to determine what our top side temps are and to see if we have any problems with heat sen

When? How and What??

Has there been a definite date for the total move over to lead free? Will it be 2004 or 2008. Also is there a direct replacement for leaded solder, I have read various articles on numerous alloys suggested for the switch, such as bismuth, tin, copper

Intermetallic compounds [IMC]: * Form during the alloying process of some metals. In soldering these are Sn, Ni, Ag, Cu, Au. * Do not accept solder. * Increase in depth in logarithmic proportion to both time and temperature. [So during the solder

Earl, et al, Boy things get old and cold around here fast. I promised more detail on my capactior problem and I thought I could drop something completely different in the same message and tell a tale of solder balls. First the caps. We stil

Discoloring of Soldermask and silkscreen

Electronics Forum | Mon Apr 12 19:28:26 EDT 1999 | Tom B

Netters, When I reflow a PCB there is a discoloration of silkscreen and mask. It appears if Profile is too hot! But I dont think so, maybe I'm wrong? 1. Kester 293 no clean 2. 2.1 C/s for 30s to 150 C 3. .5 - .7 C/s for 60s to 185 C 4. 1.5 C/s u

Reflow soldering problems and traces under component

Some people involved in PCB assembly process claim that SMD components reflow soldering problems are often caused by traces running under a component. According to this claim, trace (or any copper) covered by solder mask and placed under SMD componen
