Is it correct that there is nothing direct in Class III documentation that states these boards should not be reworked? Whether these boards are allowed to be reworked is strictly a decision / agreement between assembler and customer . . . correct?

How about rework (touch-up) for Class 3? Some say that you are not allowed to rework anything for Class 3. Though I have not found any proof for this 'requirement' in the standards.

Hi I won't give you an answer directly yet I hope the following makes sense. The max rework depends on what is used in the reliability model and/or experimental data as worst case for the applications end of life reliability needs. E.G. let's say

I would say it depends on the process requirements for the board and the reliability requirements as has already been mentioned. If you do two-sided reflow you might allow for fewer rework attempts, for example. If it's a medical device you might on

Marc: Experimental evidence is rare. Published reports are rarer. I can�t comment on the impact of rework on your RF boards. I can tell you that: � HF is pretty LF these days. � We allow three rework actions on each aboard. � IPC-7721 is a fine s

Based on the components mentioned, it sounds like you need a soldering station rather than a bga rework station. The equipment mentioned would allow you to rework fine pitch QFPs and BGAs. Reworking an sot-23 using one of those systems is inefficie

Ok, just to put closure on things I figured I should post the conclusion of this whole ordeal. We've acquired a new BGA rework station that allows us to get away without tenting our vias under the BGAs. This allowed us to change our PCB spec to rem

We're starting to get into BGAs at my company. I have worked with BGA with another company, but that was nearly 10 years ago now. One thing I haven't found is the required clearance around BGA components. Is there a standard for this distance? Wha
