Thanks for your replies. We had looked at a microscope but it wasn't able to get a clear look at the middle solder bumps. I was just wondering if there is a microscope out there that would have that capability, or is that the best it gets.

Hi, We are looking for a BGA inspection microscope. We had looked at one with a prism method trying to found a vendor for a fiber optic scope. I'm not sure which one is best. Any recommendation and suggestion would be appreciated. Thanks. IRAS

Thats because Glenbrook Reps both. The Ersascope was the original and still is the best bang for the buck. How do you know if you have flux residue under the bga without seeing it. Show me an xray system that can see flux residue? Again, this is a PR

I almost forgot to ask You: what is the purpose of the BGA inspection microscope? Perhaps we tell You stories that You alraedy know about... the ersascope we have is there to look funny and prove to the customer that we can check if we want to

Hi, I have always wondered about these scopes and are they any good? They seem expensive when you consider you really only see the outside balls, and with small lead-less parts becoming more common, would the money be better spent on a good X-Ray?
