Is anyone aware of any articles, white papers, etc., that discuss the gap between the lead and the pad after a SM joint is soldered? In particular, I am looking for a formula for that "gap" for various components.

We don't have a gap between the lead and the pad after a SM joint is soldered. On our boards, this space is filled with the solder intended to attach the component to the board. How high do components sit above the surface of a board? Most people a

IPC 610 *C* states that the solder thickness requirement is a properly wetted termination is evident. Fillet height is another aspect and is usually specific to the package but is some function of solder thickness plus a percentage of lead height. D

Mike, dude, I feel your pain. Hearing stories like this makes my blood boil! It's almost as ridiculous as a customer who told me to put more solder paste on a MELF component to overcome noise issues - he used more solder paste as antennas to overco
