Location:

PACE - Elkridge Engineering & Training Center , Elkridge, Maryland

Description:

In the past 20 years, such mundane operations as soldering, desoldering and component replacement have become complicated by extreme micro-miniaturization, the use of lead-free solders, new thermally challenging pc boards, heat-sinking bottom terminated components and intricate component packages that are difficult to rework or install. One area that presents unique challenges is BGA/Area Array rework. Modern boards that use these components are more technically demanding than ever, requiring skilled operators who are highly competent at accomplishing delicate, intricate soldering and rework tasks. Unfortunately, many operators will cause more damage to the assembly or components due to his/her rework actions. As a result, many manufacturers struggle to repair or rework boards, opting to throw away lower value boards or hire outside contractors to perform the more difficult repairs. This presentation will review current techniques and procedures for performing highly reliable, high-quality rework and repair on some of the more difficult BGA packages, and will include live demonstrations of BGA rework using available convective and infrared heating techniques.

The presentation will address typical BGA/area array components, heating technologies (convection and infrared), the importance of bottom side preheating, flux application, solder paste stenciling, device alignment methods and thermal profiling techniques, followed by a live demonstration of BGA rework.
