Solder Short in the passives components in the Solder Side| 19 September, 2003
I am having solder short defects on the bottom side with SMD devices that run through the Wave solder. May you let me know any IPC guildelines about the spacing, orientation or any other design guidelines for avoid solder defects with SMD devices for double side boards that run through wave solder.

IPC SM 782 has some info on wave solder pad geometries. We usually like .03" spacing to any uncommon conductors. I would assume that you are seeing shorts between components and vias or adjacent parts?
