At my last employer, we ran a number of tests to make a "Hybrid" profile work (same profile Joe lists) . It worked great for everything but BGAs. The problem (6 months ago) was using parts not rated for lead free reflow temps. As the market fills wit

Hi, SAC BGA's in a SnPb reflow process can be achieved by ensuring the temp. on the BGA is at a peak min of 220�C and a time above 207-210�C for 60 - 90 Sec. Lower temperatures have shown incomplete mixing of alloys and some voiding.

Unfortunately, I don't have a copy of IPC-A-610 D on hand, however, I believe in IPC-610, this �floating height� between lead and pad has no maximum specification restriction. As long as there is no voiding, it is still acceptable for all 3 classes.

Just out of curiosity, how are you or anyone else determining a defect? Last I checked, IPC had no criteria yet for solder defects for QFN components. Has this changed? Biggest problems we see are voids which our x-ray shows a lot of. Our problems
