Upside down placement of a crystal oscillator is acceptable or not ?? As per IPC 8.3.2.9.2 Rectangular or Square End Chip Components – 1, 3 or 5 Side Terminations.I am not sure whether is applicable for crystal oscillator or not . Your answer would be highly appreciable

What kind of oscillator are you placing (Manufacturer part #)?

I do not believe that oscillators fall under the "chip component" category. Even if they did, most all SMT oscillators that I have come into contact with have 1 sided terminations on the bottom side of the component. That being said, the criteria in section 8.3.2 (Rectangular or Square End Chip Components - 1,3 or 5 Side Terminations) do not apply. In the introduction for this section it is stated "For 1 sided termination, the solderable side is the vertical end face of the component".

I would say that a upside down placement of an oscillator is not acceptable.

Hope this helps...
