If the solder joint meeting 126.96.36.199, minimum side joint length(D) and also meeting 188.8.131.52, minimum heel fillet height (F) but the heel fillet NOT extend to the mid point of outside bend. It is acceptable?

Hold off on the sharp knife for little bit. [Yano, I get "queasy" when I see much of my blood, but other people�s blood doesn�t bother me much. Weird, eh?] [Oh bye-da-bye, I didn�t win the bar bet on "Ground Hog Day". I didn�t loose it either. T

The pads are 0.070 x 0.012 ... as spec'ed, and as measured. The pad extends approximately 0.017 behind where the Class 3 fillet is required to be. (It used to be 0.037 on an older design that exhibited similar, but not as bad of heel fillets.)

The picture shows that the heel of the device lead is not on the pad. Either bad placement or wrong pad dimensions. I imagine most customers would reject this joint as only a small part of the lead is actually in the solder. With no heel fillet the j

On one hand, nothing in 184.108.40.206 that states that you need a heel fillet. It only talks to the length of the side fillet. On the other hand, we suggest that you should use 220.127.116.11 to determine if your heel fillet is acceptable, after you have determ

Sounds like you're talking about the "heel" of the lead not being soldered, in other words, no heel fillet, which IS necessary. That problem, for us, was attributed primarily to poor layout (insufficient length of pad extension to provide room for
