There is no industry standard for BTC stand-off height. "IPC-7093A Design and Assembly Process Implementation for Bottom Termination SMT (BTC) Components" just finished "Final Draft for Industry Review" in December 2018. It mentions stand-off height

We want to insert LED's on .100 center's with a UIC Rad 2. The LED must have plastic standoff on the leads before they are inserted. Are there any tape & reel machines that will put the standoff on the LED and then put the component on tape & Reel. A

We use plastic standoffs that fit between the LED and the board. Live well, live long. For more than you wanted to know about standoffs: http://www.reedlink.com/ProductInfo~Productid~158255~ProductName~LED-Standoffs.html

Hi Carol You can use a threaded standoff and put a screw through the board and into the standoff with the screw from the buss bar coming into the other end of the standoff. You should use a SEMS type screw or a internal star type lockwasher with a pl

Hi all, Assuming that i were to design a PCB and there are multiple components, what is the minimum spacing required to ensure that i won't have problems in my SMT process later on? Also, is there a minimum component stand-off height spec as well?

For your pad layout and spacing between components, look here: http://portal.ipc.org/Purchase/ProductDetail.aspx?Product_code=77b562c1-b8f8-db11-8a6a-005056875b22 For your standoff height in SMT, we do not concern ourselves with standoff height. It

I think you can effectively clean under any other low standoff device. It's an issue of surface tension, pressure, and flow rate. DI water is the starting point, but the surface tension of straight DI water makes it difficult to get under low stand

Screen printing has much lower profile than dispensing. So it is suitable for chips without body stand-off, (Even sot23 has stand-off). But is is much faster. Dispensers can not catch up with some chip shooters.

KS: You're correct. The standoff on a 1.00mm and 1.25mm BGA is high enough to allow cleaning. The standoff on 0.8mm BGA does not allow proper cleaning, even with saponifiers.
