We also use machinists dye. I like to pull a vacuum on the board after wicking the dye under the BGA. It seems to help fill fine cracks. I'll stick it in a warm oven if I'm in a hurry for the dye to dry. Then just bend the board to pop off the BGA.

We are experiencing some difficulty in BGA assembly and would like to do some periodic on site dye and pry after different assembly processes. Does anyone do this now? Is it actually feasible? Does anyone have recomendations on equipment/dye suppl

More than 350 engineers who attended last week’s IPC webinar, Soldering and Assembly Defects, were polled on their biggest headaches with printed boards, PCB components and PCB assembly process failures. The survey results which identify solder finish, ball grid array (BGA) components and reflow soldering as the greatest challenges, provide webinar co-sponsor, National Physical Laboratory (NPL) of the United Kingdom with useful information as it prepares its NPL Process Defect Clinic for IPC APEX EXPO® 2012.

Ever since there has been a widespread usage of surface mount parts, the trend of continued shrinkage of devices with ever finer pitches has continued to challenge PCB assemblers for the rework of same. Todays' pitches are commonly 0.5 to 0.4mm with packages of tiny outline sizes, 5 -10mm square, making the rework of such devices a challenge. In addition to the handling and inspection challenges comes the board density. Spacing to neighboring components continues to be compressed so the rework techniques should not damage neighboring components.

Electronics assemblies with large flip-chip BGA packages can be prone to either pad cratering or brittle intermetallic (IMC) failures under excessive PCB bending. Pad cratering cracks are not detected by electrical testing or non-destructive inspection methods, yet they pose a long term reliability risk since the cracks may propagate under subsequent loads to cause electrical failure. Since the initiation of pad cratering does not result in an instantaneous electrical signature, detecting the onset of this failure has been challenging. An acoustic emission methodology was recently developed by the authors to detect the onset of pad cratering. The instantaneous release of elastic energy associated with the initiation of an internal crack, i.e., Acoustic Emission (AE), can be monitored to accurately determine the onset of both pad cratering and brittle intermetallic (IMC) failures.
