Cheryl Tulkoff and Randy Schueller do a good job summarizing the thinks on pad cratering here: http://www.smta.org/chapters/files/uppermidwest_padcratering.pdf Potential Mitigations to Pad Cratering * Board Redesign * Solder mask defined vs. non-s

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

I would think that wave solder beneath a BGA component might be a little bit stressful. The board will be expanding much faster than the BGA on the topside. This will cause some stress to the solder joints that might show up as the failure you are

We are having a problem with a 601 pin BGA in that the corners of the BGA are lifting and taking the pads with them. Faults are not always seen straight away so we are not sure at which point the fault is happening. So far it looks as though flexing

This is from a section of an ALtera EP2SGX130-5 STRATIX 2 leadfree 1,508 ball BGA. What can be causing this? It is from an unused board (not assembled in a unit, or in the field, but it did pass electrical and function test. There are three of them i

Ditto here, also. This is generally referred to as �cratering,� and is associated with stress on boards from operations such as ICT, installation of compliant pin connectors, and depanelization. It is more common on PCBs designed for Lead-free proc

Was this a lead-free capable material that fits into IPC 4101/126 or /129, like an Isola 370HR? I would not be surprised because from the picture I think I can see resin underneath the lifted copper, which is an interlaminate separate. This is a

SN100C Selective Solder Voiding

Electronics Forum | Wed Nov 05 18:39:06 EST 2008 | joeherz

Hello, We have recently installed a selective soldering machine and are seeing some voiding/cratering in random locations. We have done some basic experimenting with fluxing parameters, preheat and dwell times but haven't been able to eliminate it.
