Solder Paste and fine pitch components

Electronics Forum | Tue Sep 17 15:47:42 EDT 2002 | stepheno

Where I worked previously we had some boards with a couple 15 mil pitch parts. The first batch we got all had undersized pads. We had lots of bridging. We had less bridging with bigger pads. The ball size in the paste makes a bigger diffence regar

I am working with fine pitch components (15-20 mil) and having soldering problems and would appreciate some opinions. 1) How much of an effect does pad size have on bridging? 2) How much of an effect does solder paste grain size have? What is the re

We had lots of problems with bridging on 15.8mm pitch, QFP17-160 at the start.The board was .032 thick, double sided-six boards to a panel. Here is the problems (not neccessarily in the biggest to little but as i remember them) and solutions that he

People have made good comments. Additional points are: * Your bridging is probably being caused by one or more of the following: [1] printing too much paste, [2] smearing the paste during placement or subsequent handling, or [3] paste slump during t

This is a question regarding soldermask between pins of fine pitch devices. The majority of our production designs end up with at least 2-3 mils of copper thickness on the external layers due to blind vias, wrap plating requirements, etc. Our curre

My suggestion is to conduct a Design For Manufacturing (DFM)study on the assembly in question. Pay particular attention to the pad sizes, component lead dimensions and satisfy yourself that those two factors are correct. Given that pads match compone

A couple more things. The PCB. What size are the pads? One time a board shop had difficulty putting masking between the pads of a QFP and the pads suffered as a result. When I told them they didn't have to have masking between the pads, the pads w

Hello everyone, I work for a company that, up until now, has done everything using through-hole components. This has been fine for years, but we have been pushed into the world of surface mount manufacturing by a new product that is far cheaper and

Well everything Graham said with some additional points.. You mention manual printing but very little about your stencil or setup. Everything you have said indicates a very limited budget has been expended, however what you have is an extreme exampl
