All the packages like 0603,0402,0201 have half the width as compared to length but in case of 0805 package width is 50 mils instead of 40 mils. Is there any special reason designing point of view. Please tell if anybody knows.

Does the EIA standard recommend any standard PCB pad sizes (LxB)? and pitch-to-pitch (Pad) distances? Thanks for the advise.

If don't want to be distracted by those things, why not just use the pattern calculator on the IPC site?

I have been using this series with AIM SnPb no-clean paste without problems.

Sounds like you're not getting the solder connection hot enough. Talk about: * Temperature of the solder on the connection * Solder alloy * Board solderability protection * Component solderability protection

EIA standard packages have a variety of L/W proportions. EIA||Dimension mm (LXW)||Proportion (L/W) 0201||0.6X0.3||2 0202||0.5X0.5||1 0303||0.8X0.8||1 0402||1.0X0.5||2 0504||1.25X1.0||1.25 ||1.4X1.4||1 0603||1.6X0.8||2 0805||2.0X1.25||1.6 1111||2.8X2

Yo! thanks! for the link, too bad it costs USD$1K+ for single site license fee. IPC's specs are great for customer level discussions, but its guys like 'smtplus' who help get the warzone DFM into action, coz its guys like us who need to do the groun

Hi SMTAnet, SMTnet, You already got good answers for how to go forward. I believe that this 50mils is a remnant of the days when we started at 125 mil grids and started the process of going down to 100mil grids, SMT. My gosh who would ever want a 1

The EIA does not provide that information. EIA standards focus on component dimensions. Alternately consider: ...cut... SM-782A - Surface Mount Design & Land Pattern Standard, Inc. Am. 1 & 2 ANSI Approved Get up-to-date land pattern recommendat

We are installing via reflow soldering a crystal that has 2 pads, 1 each end. They are flat pads on the bottom of the part with a small area of the pad looping around and up the side of the crystal on the end. Inspection of the cyrstal under a 40X
