Abstract

A slot can be added to a PCB under d compo- nent in order to stop the solder flux wicking along the bottom of the part during manufacture. This slot prevents solder flux residue from joining both com- ponent pads together, which would increase leakage current and may cause Hum + Noise failures with loop capacitors.
