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

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
