Hello: Pre-baking laminates should only be performed:(1) to meet contractual agreements or (2) in response to an actual defect that can be traced to PWB water absortion. Besides the fact that a pre-bake is an enormous process "bottleneck," it also

What are the main advantages of moving from a 140 degree C FR4 laminate to a higher Tg laminate 180 degree C ?. Would the higher Tg laminate be less susceptable to bow and twist ?. John Holland

We believe your problem is caused by the mismatch in CTE of the material ised in your BGA. In fact, this "potato chipping" [where the corners curl-up] is present in all BGA. The issue is the matter of degree. [Mismatching CTE is how old thermostats

Questions are: * Is the blistering in the solder mask or the laminate? * If the blistering is in the solder mask, what do the blisters look like [eg, size, quantity, distribution, etc]? * If the blistering is in the laminate, what do the blisters loo

Forgot to ask earlier - what is the TG rating for your laminate? If not selected already, use a high TG rating like TG155 or TG170 laminates for the ROHS temps. Never saw swollen PCBAs with such rated PCBs to date.

Some of the blister in solder mask, normally 1 circle blister(about 1cm in Dim.) in each PCB. In addition, there are also blister in laminate, the also look like 1 circle blister(about 1cm in Dim.) in each PCB.

Cuppla questions for ya ... Where are the shorts [above the mask or between the mask and the laminate]? On the board, what material is between the copper traces and the mask? What type of solder mask(s) used by your suppliers? What are they using

That's what we do [no more than three reworks or mods]. Your "four reworks permissable" was probably based on the 55110 five thermal cycles, counting wave soldering as the first cycle. How do you plan to keep track of each of those rework actions?

You have a board defect. Any moisture and/or organic contaminants trapped by the solder resist during lamination may cause solder mask delamination, blistering and/or adhesion loss during subsequent soldering operations or during extended use.
