Early on when we started looking at BGAs we tried dipping. We've done it in production for a couple decades with flipchips. Dip fluxing BGAs worked fine in the lab but we ended up starting production with screen printed flux for cycle time reasons.

thanks for the inputs. we are planning to run on fuji nxt i think cycle time will not be an issue. i still have another question if we can still use the same reflow profile for paste? or do we need to create another profile?

We have been doing BGA's for years now, and I would suggest updating your profile and place a thermal couple on the BGA, keep in mind the bigger the part the more heat it will need, We stencil print all of BGA's from simple bga's to complex ones, you

IMHO I would suggest that if you are using flux only during a BGA placement on a small run, that you first tin the pads with your soldering iron, then level the pads back out with wick. Accomplishes two things; adds a little metal to the joint to ma

Hi, If your using NXT to place these BGA's then you must be doing large runs. BGA's are the most easy part to place, and don't worry about them. Just stencil paste down for them as any other component. But we use 1:1 reduction on our stencil, so we

We are using the new auto-dipping machine for LED solder dipping and dragging. The flux is water-soluble flux and the solder is 63/37 at 250 deg. C. Two weeks ago we exchanged the pot with new 63/37 solder. About a week, we found that the high level

First, responding to your question � Several things on copper dissolution in solder are: * A 50um copper wire will dissolve in 60Sn / 40Pb solder at: - 200�C solder in 55 seconds; - 250�C solder in 20 seconds; - 300�C solder in 5 seconds; - 350�C so
