DC Offset from IC when PCB is flexed | 26 September, 2008

Has anyone seen this? - We have a new smt pcb with 2 x LF356 (Op-amp) IC's on it (plus others).

When the pcb is flexed the O/P of each IC changes by �2mV DC. i.e. the board is acting like a strain gauge!

There is no oscilation and when I replace the smt IC's with DIP devices on 20mm legs, absolutly no problems.

Can anyone suggest a reason, or two?

TIA.
