Experiments with very small 0201 size foot prints were NOT as successful as I would like. The small 0201 pads would not hold enough solder to allow proper bridging of the gap between pads. A usable bridge could only be made with very dry slaggy solder.
I am trying the new Solder Jumper Pattern as I suggest in the previous post. Here are the proposed dimensions, the folded pads should help hold the solder and aid in bridge creation. Or, at least that is the plan.
|Overall size is 72 x 32 mils (0703)|
Dimension Values Shown are Mils
The PCB Manufactures that I use, and my own Homebrew PCB processing, should be able to create the pattern without difficulty.
I have recently sent a small board off to Manufacturing with one of these new Solder Jumpers , Soon, I will report the results.
