All About Solder Escape-Wicking

Sometimes, instead of molten solder remaining on the SMD pad, it may flow away to a connected copper element, typically a copper area or pad that has been left uncovered by soldermask. However, this effect is most pronounced with a nearby via hole that does not have a soldermask web covering or a dam in […]
