Suface mount shield pad size | 1 April, 2009

Has anyone used Orbel E-Z SHIELD, Surface mount two-piece fence and cover? They do not recommend pad size, any suggestions

In addition, we are considering RFI Clip (Autosplice PN MINI7-V2004115AA/TT). I have concerns about alignment, Possible floating on the pads during reflow.

Any experiences with either or similar products would be appreciated

On Orbel E-Z SHIELD, Surface mount two-piece fence and cover: Make the pads 1:1 with the pads on the fence.

On Autosplice MINI 7-V2004-115 RFI Clip floating: * Autosplice recommended pad small dimension is very close to the small dimension of the part. So, it won't float much in that direction. * Autosplice recommended pad long dimension is larger than the long dimension of the part. So, it might float in that direction, but who cares? As long as the pad is not close to the corners of the cover there should not be a problem that can not be resolved with common sense. It's just a frigin metal clip used to hold a RFI cover in place.
