Pictures are now located at http://www.stevezeva.homestead.com/ These components are 2W resistors that only see 1/2W at max. during normal use. I have contacted IRC still wqaiting for a response. The resistors were tested as good. But the circuit

Main diffrences in failure modes for mechanically and thermally induced BGA solder joint fracture

I would look at your de-paneling process. How are you cutting the boards? This could be inducing mechanical stress on the component; especially if the part is close to the edge of the pcb and perpendicular to it.

Most likely the depaneling is not your issue, but I do concur that there is some mechanical stress occurring somewhere. What about any fixturing for FT/ICT?

I am posting this here because I think it may have something to do with PCBA: I have a simple battery-powered consumer product (LED light) that we have been manufacturing for some time. All of a sudden in one batch, we have about a 4% rate of a sing

Moisture should not be an issue with ceramics, but mechanical or thermal stress definitely is. Has there been rework on this capacitors? So check for handling /temperature of your soldering irons (better:use hot air). Check oven temperature/profile

Sounds like black pad to me. I just suffered this last week. Track your fab lot codes. Just in case. I processed 1000 fabs of 2 lot codes through 1 line (also WS609). 1 lot code failed with black pad the other did not. With one common mfg. proc
