Reducing The Tombstoning of Small Discrete Components
AIM
Abstract: Continued product miniaturization has driven passive component sizes down from 0805 & 0603 to 0402 & 0201 dimensions. By saving precious PWB real estate, this trend usually results in higher performance through a lighter, smaller product however, it also can have the undesired effect of increased defects during the assembly process. The most prevalent defect when assembling devices with these small discrete components is tombstoning. This paper discusses the most common causes of this defect and provides a variety of practical cures.
