Components near breakouts

Components near breakouts | 1 December, 2015

Hi all, I was wondering if there are guidelines for how near components are to breakouts, and orientation of components near breakouts? Does IPC or other address this? We are sometimes approached with some crazy PCB layouts with multiple PCB's per array. Thanks

My DFM rules are no chips within 250 mils of a breakout and all chips in parallel to the breakout. Made these changes after some nasty line failures years ago. Not one in or out of house failure due to cracked discrete chips since.
