I am looking at the TDK part: C2012SL1A104J, which uses the footprint CC0805_53N_TDK. We built a board based on this, and we found that the parts did not really fit well, and had to do some hand soldering to update the board. I am reviewing these footprints now (all of them) and I want to make sure I am doing it correctly... For this part, how would you verify it to have the correct footprint? What i did is as follows:
1. Went to the datasheet and compared the measurements (converting metric to mils) related to the soldering instructions: http://media.digikey.com/pdf/Data%20She ... pl_B11.pdf
I found these to be very different from the footprint provided in PCB123... This is why I am asking for some help in verification. If you have time can you take a look at this part and tell me what you think the footprint should be?
I am fairly new to this development, so any help would be much appreciated.
