  • What are the advantages and disadvantages of the gull wing design versus flat leads?
    • Advantages:
      Superior self alignment performance based on the surface tension of molten solder during mounting on the customer's board, even with some displacement Θ .
      Disadvantages:
      The leads themselves are shorter, and with the lack of a bended section board bending stress after mounting and mounting strength are concerns. However, even the flat lead design possesses sufficient absolute strength and should pose no problems for practical use.
