Post subject: Solder Pads for Surface Mount Components
Unread postPosted: Fri Sep 24, 2004 9:16 am

Good day.

I am looking for the specifications (maybe an IPC document) that would give the dimensions for the solder pads for standard size surface mount components (i.e. 0402, 0603, 0805, 1206, 2010, 2512 etc.).

I would like to have a specification so that I can reference a document, however, if someone knows of a website that can give these dimensions I will be able to start there.

Thank you for your time and help.

IPC lists several optional solder pad dimensions for surface mount types like 0402 etc. depending on the manufacturing (soldering) process.

The IPC web site is closed for non members, but frequently, the recommendations can be found on other web sites with a little help from your favourite search engine.

Hi Michael,

Look for IPC 7351.

There are three standards, (or suggestions) within this spec: Nominal, Least and Most. They all lists different dimensions which depends on the technology and capability of the assembly manufacturer.

Kirt Blattenberger,

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The Internet was still largely an unknown entity at the time and not much was available in the form of WYSIWYG ...
