Groovy!!! [Sorry, I always wanted to say that.] As background, look at: * SMTnet Archives * "Pocket Guide to Excellent V-Scoring" and "Scoring FAQ's" [http://www.accusystemscorp.com] they cover all of the dimensions and give a short summary on the

I haven't heard of heating boards pre-depanel either. We have done extensive studies on cracking of ceramic caps close to V-scored edges and have decided to have our board vendors pre-rout any areas with caps close (
