We have been asked to rework several thousand bare circuit boards. A design change now requires 2 chip components where 1 was originally required. Round test pads near this area will be used to complete this circuit rework, however these test pads are not the proper size. 1 end of each chip component will share a single test pad, the other ends of these chip components will be soldered to separate pads. Tomb stoning will result during automatic solder reflow unless the pads are trimmed to the proper size. The question is what should the relative size of these 3 pads be to eliminate tomb stoning. 1 pad will share 2 solder terminations, the other 2 pads will each have a single solder termination.
Thanks in advance for your expert advise.
