Hai, In our process we are using the micro bga of size 13X13mm of pitch 0.45mm,after soldering process the bga found collapsed, we absorbed that the PCB land pattern of the BGA was not in array, uneven distribution of pads (area) & most of the pads

We'd expect to see: * Solder starved connections at pads with large trace/pad areas. * Less reliable solder connections at pads that do not match the shape and size of the corresponding pads on the component.

Yes, it's peculiar that the layout of this board is so disorganized * Pads are not round, uniform, or the same size * Exposed traces have different thickness

Rework is typically done by heating the BGA to 170-180C to first scrape off the fillet. Then, heat to above reflow, and lift the BGA. Then, collapse the solder with heat and flux. Then, back down at 170-180C, scrape off the underfill from the boar

hi, the last post on pad cratering dates from 2012. We have (likely similar) problems with a RoHS 783 solder ball BGA size 29x29mm^2 (organic package BT), pitch is 1mm and solder ball diam is 0.5mm the field failure is after 12 months, almost exclu
