Reduce PCB pad area on fabricated boards | 25 October, 2013

Hi Guys,

We are seeing signal integrity issues on PCBs due an improper pad size. We tried to trim down the pad size and it fixed the issue.

Problem now is we have many assembled and blank PCBs. Is there a way we can have the pad size reduced on these boards with minimal risk. Plating on the board is ENIG.

Thanks!

Laser ablation * Photochemical (UV sources, e.g. Excimer) * Photothermal (IR sources, e.g. CO2)

Comparing sources: * CO2 Laser-->UV Nd:YAG Laser--> Excimer Laser: An increase in system capabilities & ablation quality * CO2 Laser-->UV Nd:YAG Laser--> Excimer Laser: A decrease in processing speed and relative increase in manufacturing cost

Do you actually need to reduce the area of the copper? Or could you just cover some of the copper with something?
