Mosfet stencil design | 18 July, 2005

I have a SO-8 mosfet part from Vishay SI7846DP-T1. Am having a lot of solder ball that coming underneath the part. Am currently using a 5 mils with a window design for my stencil. Those anyone have experience or have any suggestion for an aperture that will eliminate solderball.

You may want to try reducing the large center aperture on your stencil to 50-70% of the area of the pad. This is what we do with QFNs and it may be applicable in this case also.

We agree with Russ. The solderballs are probably the result of printing too much paste on the board.

In designing your 5 thou thick stencil: * Aperatures for the pads should be identical to a IPC-7351 - SO8 [or worst case ] * Aperatures for the heat slug should be the same is as the pads, but only cover 50% of the heat slug area.
