Let's narrow this down. Questions are: * Are you putting the proper amount of solder in the board with your stencil print process? * If you are putting the proper amount of solder in the board, where is the solder going? Pick one and then fill-in th

What pitch? You can go 5 mil or even 6 mil stencils depending on your screen printer. Also what do you consider "less solder"? What defect are you having. Remember on a QFP you use the heel filet to determine proper solder joint - not the toe.

The most part I have the most difficulty with is a 16mil QFN. We found that reducing stencil thickness to 4mil, and reducing aperatures for the IC by 20%, and setting local fiducials to the IC helped immensely. We used to get 75% or more bridged ou

16 thou pitch parts: Use a 5 thou laser cut electropolished stencil with 0.008"x0.045" apertures and type 3 solder paste. Bridges Connecting or Partially Connecting Adjacent Leads or Lands * Excessive solder paste * Excessive component placement pre

We use a 5 mil for 16mil pitch QFPs, Make sure that the stencil has been polished. Type 3 paste. We have used lead free no-clean, lead no-clean, and water soluble lead pastes for these packages. We set the printer for a slow stroke .7 in/min. wi

What do you all do to fix coplanarity on fine pitch QFPs? I know that the best thing would be to send them back to the vender, but what about the when you gotta use them? Straightening by hand seems to be so time comsuming. Any better ways? Larry
