Re: The Case of the Squished Leads?

A comment made in a Mechatronics column about an 'unnecessary restraint' comes to mind. Yes, the epoxy potting was necessary, but did it have to be rigid? If it must, were all results of the rigid constraint accounted for?

I've done this numerous times, thinking 'more is better' when I've eliminated a choice/freedom that gained me nothing but thought I've trimmed a loose end.

The Case of the Squished Leads?

Perhaps this one should be titled "The Case of the Squished Leads."  A good example of why so much advance testing needs to be done on a product made of multiple materials with different, and sometimes incompatible, characteristics.
