Hall IC Placement (Support with PWB Carrier)

Hall IC Placement (Support with PWB Carrier) | 5 March, 2003

Presently, we have one PWBA with Hall IC which required designated PWE-Carrier to hold this component from bottom. This IC only has 4 leads at one at one side, whereas no lead available at the opposite. See below diagram for detail. _____ Pin1 --| | Pin2 --| | Pin3 --| | Pin4 --|_____| Hall IC Lead Configuration

This component is sitted in the PWB slot; hence, it required a PWB-carrier to support underneath.

Question:-

Is there any alternative of running this IC without using the PWB Carrier?

Hello Joseph, I'm sure there is an alternative but I need to have more information in order to make a suggestion. Is the part setup for selective soldering, through-hole for wave or surface mount for reflow? Let me know if you require additional assistance. Thanks!

Hello sir,

The component is for surface mount reflow.It would dropped into the pwb slot during component placement if no support from underneath .

Hello Joseph, I'll be honest, I'm finding it a bit difficult to understand and visualize the complete scenario. If this component is designed for surface mount placement into a slot on a PCB, then why does it even need support from the bottom side? Is it being placed on a flex circuit therefore requiring the extra support? If you'd like to call me at 603-883-7843, maybe it could be easier to diagnose what's really happening here.
