BGA standards



BGA standards | 9 June, 2000

Hi, Does anyone know where I can find some sort of standard for BGA's? We have done quite a bit of BGA rework and some of the results are less than spectacular when viewed with the X-ray machine. For example, on a lot of the boards the ball seems to have completely disappeared, and I have nothing with which to gauge these boards against.

Any help would be appreciated, bw

I am not aware if there is any standard but INTEL web site has some really good step by step process for reworking BGA's.

Oh Yes.. the fine art of rework. There is not a comprehensive textbook or manual that covers every conceivable situation. Just practical guidelines. I suppose the next step is to isolate probelm areas and discuss solutions in more specifics. Could be process, equipment, etc... Dave White PDR/XYtronic

Try IPC-7095 at It is a complete reference on Design and Assembly Process Implementation for BGAs. Glenbrook Technologies was instrumental in the developemnt of this document

Hello Billy!!

IPC 7095 covers all the design rules and guide lines in BGA assembly and inspection, this will help you a lot in your problem...But based on your problem, it seems that all the balls were disappeared, try to check the capability of your x-ray machine or the set-up....coz this type of problem is quite strange...for your info, missing ball or "disappeared" ball is prohibited in BGA assembly, so definitely this is non-acceptable. Hope this could help!!!

Hi, as what's I understand, there have no any standart of these. In order to prevent these or to improve these, please check the rework temp. profile.
