Dear all, We have a PCB design mistake that causes exposed copper layers on the edges of breakaway locations. Although we fixed the design, but we already made a lot of boards plus many made before we found the problem. I wonder if any one have some

IPC-A-610F 10.2.6 Laminate Conditions - Depanelization talks to the acceptability of the depanelization criteria for assembled boards. There is no requirement for moisture sealing with epoxy or other material. Basically, the standard requires that th

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

We approved the Reflow Profile from Cookson Solder Paste Manufacturer we are using. Now I am suspecting on method of vias designing below that QFP.There is exposed pad for that QFP and we print solder paste there , but when i see under x-ray there is

Are you exposing so you can solder and SMD component directly to it? If not are there ant vias near by that connect to the area you are trying to expose? If not I have done as Dave suggested using a dremal tool. Messy but it works.

Do BGA packages absorb moisture to a great extent if kept exposed to an atmosphere of 300C and 60% relative humidity overnight? Should they be backed before reuse. How long can they be kept exposed without the requirement of baking. Are there any spe

We are using ST Demodulator QFP in our product which have exposed pad / heatsink from bottom side. Visually or in magnifier the solder joint or fillet looks good but if we touch up the pins with soldering guns , PCB works fine.

First, the reflow thermal recipe provided by your paste supplier is only a ball park guess. Beyond that, the temperature measured by thermocouples on your oven heaters are only loosely related the temperature of solder paste on your board. You need t
