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

For my opinion, this will not the end for you yet if supplier unable to provide you the rootcauses and corrections. I faced this more than 3 times within 2 years. All type of lab tests (SEM, FTIR,cross-sectioning,solderability tests, and etc.) They

Sounds like you and your board suppliers have done alot of work with this issue trying to solve the problem. When I got into this situation previously, I relied on an outside lab to help me. We didn't have SEM or any testing capability at my shop eit

Thanks to all for your input. We did have a third party do an analysis on boards from the first shop. They were shipped directly from the board shop to eliminate the possibility that we could contaminate them. The third party (Forsite) did find Sili

Hi, if you want to verify the gold contamination, is mandatory to use the XPS and FTIR analysis, but is difficult think about a gold contamination from 3 different manufacturers. Do you have cleaned the PCBs after an erroneous screen process ? If no

We have had some unusual reflow conditions with BGA's as well. We did not come to the conclusion that something was covering the lands though. It typically occured with only the BGA lands (not the decoupling caps on the back side). We found that the

Unfortunately nothing ground breaking to report. The board shops analysis (SEM/EDS)showed high levels of carbon and oxygen, likely indicating an organic based contaminate. They are still stumped on where it is coming from. We recieved some boards y

Hi all, The board shop finally got back to me with some results. They did find residue present on some of the pads. They have sent a board out for evaluation to learn what it is. Hopefully from that we can determine the root cause. The good news i

Yes, the vias under the BGAs are the only ones capped. I tend to agree with you that the leaching should affect the bottom more than the top and that was actually the case with the two previous shops that had this problem. We suspected with those s
