Isolating QFN Ground

Mar 15, 2013 | We avoid kapton in this situation due to the thickness. 1 mil additional thickness can equal up to a 20% increase in paste volume at adjacent pads if you are using a 5 mil stencil. But then again, that is not always bad. But must be taken into consideration at the printing of the solder paste

Vectorguard frame failure.

Jan 4, 2013 | We've got used MPM Accuflex that we recently purchased and it seems like the stencil to board offsets need to be calibrated.

Problems with diode during wave soldering

Sep 14, 2012 | Hi Melissa, thanks for you reply... I'll increase the placement force on this component so that it touchs better the board pad. Maybe it couldnt help due to stencil aperture. Maybe I'll have to change it. If you have more ideas, please share with me. Thanks.

Solder Paste Controls

Aug 3, 2012 | I agree with Ka. I can't think of a solder paste supplier that doesn't tell you to let your paste come to room temperature before putting the paste on the stencil.

QFN aligment issues

Setting limits in Solder Paste Inspection

Apr 21, 2012 | to the stencil thickness (ie: for 100um stencil thickness i use lower limit of 70um and an upper limit of 170um). I use these limits on the whole stencil, for all the apertures. I only ise different USL and LSL for aperture groups in case of STEP UP/DOWN stencils. 3. on SPI program (particularly Koh Young

solder paste control

Mar 14, 2012 | You're not clear if you intend to reclaim and re-use the paste from the stencil or not. If not, then you should go to cartridges with an air gun or modify a caulking gun for dispensing paste from cartridges. The paste will last a long time.

Paste Printers

Sep 24, 2011 | I assume you mean dispensers? They are slow and limited on how fine they can go. Paste is much more expensive. The money you save in stencils will be eaten up by other consumable items on the dispenser. They are flexible but how flexible do you need?

super fine pitch paste & dispensing questions

Aug 16, 2010 | i would like to request some advice on manually dispensing paste for super fine pitch components. first some background. i am a small design house and specialize in sub-miniature prototypes for avionics. so far, i have mostly used stainless steel stencils (0.07mm) to deposit paste onto my proto boards. i have been using pretty standard paste (kester R276) and that all works fine. the problem with the stencils is that i sometimes have to do one-off designs and would like to avoid the cost for the stencil. in addition to the cost issues for stencils, i would like to venture into the world ob
