Having just gine through a similar problem myself (with much less equip.) Here are a few things to consider and/or look at Do you have the proper pad size? It should be the same size as the pad on the BGA. Is the board warping during your operati

in other words- who gets stuck with the latrine duty? (have seen American Graffiti, where the "effluent" was burned off with diesel fuel, Lord help the person who got stuck downwind!) The thought of having to swab a tube with some sort of cleaner ma

surely, a big picture perspective is in order to keep from charging off, tilting at windmills and waning Quixotic. Just to tic ya off a bit more (come on now, smile), would those 2 boards in rework have just one defect each or are there multiple def

This looks like it may be a good application for an Air-Vac or Wenesco type solder station. It is a solder pot that has a small motor to pump solder up through a chimney. You can put different nozzles on the top of the chimney, so you only apply sold

Designers love to do BIG copper pours for several reasons: * Maximize heat spreading. * Increase EMI shielding. * Laziness. The poor folk that solder the parts on boards HATE big copper planes near solder pads. During soldering, fat copper traces [

Forgive the non-SMT question. That's why I hate through hole boards. Has anyone ever used Bareco wax on pressfit connectors, and how do you produce a consistent process for its application? Any drawbacks? Background: We have found a design issue with

Thanks Scott,Iman, The problem has been isolated to detachment from package so I believe that there are no fabrication issues related to the Gold on the PCB. What is a Moyet analisys? where can I find more info? Dave, I am still waiting on Altera t

Epoxy Covered PCBAs Means to prevent hacking?

Electronics Forum | Mon Sep 22 23:27:09 EDT 2003 | severs

By "hacking" do you mean altering the performance of the board or something else? This reminds me of something I saw a while back. Better termed counterfeiting than hacking, it may have some relevance to what your friend is trying to do. The probl
