I would like to know if there are any detailed studies or sources of information regarding the use of round pads vs square pads with chip components (0402 and greater).Thank you.

Never read anything like that, but with the same courtyard, you have the ability to position less material with a circle than a square.

Search the fine SMTnet Archives for a heirarchy of sources from which to select pad dimensions
