Hi Bryan The answer is in the paste compozition. Balls of the BGA are usually made by eutetic solder paste.

Hi all, These days our customer asks us to figure out ,during reflow,the BGA ball and solder paste,which will first melt? I think it's very hard to get the rusult.coz I think it'll vary at diffrent part of the BGA,and how can this affect the perf

Is your customer trying to reduce voiding? If the device is using Sn90 / Pb10 and the paste is Sn63/Pb37 the board will melt first. However, if both solders are 183C eutectic, it's a tossup? PCB design, copper weight, bga type (pbga, micro bga, Tbg

what is the composition of the paste and ball ? Interesting to know why the customer is asking you to look for it Thx

OK, if the sphere of the ball and the paste on the pad are both eutectic, 63/37 then the paste will reflow first causing a drop of the component, after which the spheres will reflow causing a double drop and a good intermettalic. You can see this by

I agree with Jay. The paste will reflow first before the balls. The main reason is the flux content and the dimension of the spheres.

Very strange question,but interesting.Is there anyone who have conducted any experiments to figure out the results?I made a profile board,one thermal couple on pad and other one drilled into the ball of BGA.the 2 points are perpendicular to conveyor

First, it depends on the alloy composition of the solder. As you might know, eutectic Sn/Pb solder has the lowest melting point among available conventional solder systems. (except those based on Sn-In and Sn-Bi systems.) For example, 63Sn/37Pb - 183

There's normally a number of reasons people want to know what melts 1st, 1 - to see if you know, 2 voiding issues - whole can of worms 3 device alignment. One of our collegues has said that most balls are Eutectic, that's in fact not totally correct.

Hi, i have a confusion to read the dimension of BGA package from the datasheet. I have attached the datasheet below. Is this diameter of the ball 0.30mm or 0.15mm. I'm confused about the values given in the box. Whats meant by M, S, A and B. Please g
