Hi all, we have recently seen a design that consists off a QFP100, pitch at 25". Also in the centre of this footprint is a FBGA165 footprint, pad size .4mm @ 1mm pitch. We have been informed that we will fit the QFP. I want to remove the BGA pads fr

I have done this before, We print with a 5-6mil stencil and have had no problems with any underneath solder. If you are still nervous instead of removing from stencil use some 3 mil kapton tape or equivelant and tape off the BGA pads. This way the

Print paste in the holes you don't plan to use and let it dry. That way you don't affect your paste volume in other apertures. The bad news: When you don't want paste to dry and close your apertures, it will do it. When you want paste to dry and

Rather than using an over-lay of both pads, I would just stay with a rectangle pad shape, a little wider to accommodate both footprints. Keep it simple.

This does not look difficult. It appears the rectangle of proper size and spacing would work for both, or even a square pad. Don't make it more difficult than it should be. But then I could be missing something?

I've got a small smt board I've already got working prototypes of, which uses a tactile switch. I've got another much less expensive tact switch of similar size that I had avoided due to a difference in actuators I originally had no way around. Now I

Thanks Bob. I just didn't have enough experience with production SMT (vs hand-soldered prototypes) to know how finicky some things like this are. I've tried to do a lot of reading, but I haven't seen much that talks about things like this. I also hav
