Solder paste is a material used in the manufacture of printed circuit boards to connect surface mount components to pads on the board. It is also possible to solder through hole pin in paste components by print solder paste in/over the holes.

Hi guys,
Problem: Mid chip solder balling.
Component affected: 0603 caps only
Defect is PCB specific (Meaning only one PCB is affected as the aperture is standard for that component).
As a containment I'll give a home plate design for the component but by standard we don't use home plate designs for 0603.
I'm seeing mid chip solder ball only at the location where there is a trace beneath the mask.
Any advice or suggestion for this peculiar case?
