I guess I've been somewhat ignorant when it comes to the finer details of pcb layout. Lately I've read a couple of books that try their best to lead me on the straight and narrow. Here is a couple of examples of a recent board of mine, and I have hig

Any recommendation to reduce solder beads next to 0402, 0603 and 0805 caps and res? What about home plate vs. bow tie stencil aperture design?

Does anyone else encounter problems using feeders to handle caps that are reeled up with paper tape. We are having alot of problems with vendors that are now using the thicker type (like cardboard) to use to reel up caps. Our feeders either run too

5v or 12v feeders.....and are you sure the parts fit through the feeders and are not getting jammed. On some of the old feeders you had to remove the springs and other parts to make the tall caps work.... chow
