Generating Data Output
Always clearly indicate on which side of the PCB the heatsink paste is to be applied.
This can be on one side or on both sides.
When generating output please include the board outline.
This is best done using a small line – e.g. 0.500mm (20mil) wide – where the center of the line is the exact board outline.
We will remove this line in the actual production data we use for manufacturing your boards.
If you require Heatsink Paste on your PCB please ensure this is clearly indicated.
This should be done by using correct file naming and clear buildup or layer sequence description in the Mechanical layer.
See PCB Design Guidelines – Input Data Requirements and Mechanical Layer pages.
