Using tape as a solder paste stencil

Posted on Monday, July 9th, 2012 in DIY by DP

Sjaak shared his experiment using two L-shaped pieces of tape as a solder paste stencil. After he applied the solder paste he separated some of it using a knife.

as expected to much paste was applied as the opening was the size of the chip. I expect better result if the opening was the same size as the exposed pad or little less (also depends on the chipsize)
