Problems with .45 mil ball diameter BGA....

Apr 27, 2005 | Square you say? Wouldnt this give less paste deposition than a circle and basically reduce the standoff height the same as making the pad bigger? Would using a type 4 paste for this size stencil aperture (.013") be a good idea? Thanks JD

Screen printing Solder Mask

Pasteproblemater aftersoldering

Feb 8, 2005 | have you had any reduction in aperture size though, we generally use a 6 mil stencil thickness with a 10% aperture size reduction for chip components and leaded components ( SOIC - QFP ) and a 1:1 ratio for BGA components without any problems.

smt prototype station

Nov 17, 2004 | SMT assembly, First, you must utilize paste otherwise the parts will not stay put. Do you have any leaded devices such as QFPs or SOICs? Dispensing paste by hand is very difficult and time consuming for these types of parts. You can either dispense by syringe or stencil. A dispenser that handles paste application for the leaded parts is very expensive. as opposed to a manual printer and stencil. There are manual printers out there that are brand new and cost less than $1000, stencils can be as low as $250. You can also just buy stencils and manually line the board up underneath and use a
