I would suggest creating a special reflow profile, heating the board up to 130C about 50 c below eutectic point (183C). Then applying heat to only the BGA, this will prevent thermal shock to surrounding components.

The amount of times the tin/lead solder can be melted and solidified is unlimited and the heat cycles do not affect the solder characteristics. The only reason for changing the solder pot is when impurities are at or over the maximum levels.

I was wondering if anyone has studied the effects of tin lead solder in the wave. If we leave the same solder in the solder pot, how many COMPLETE cool downs and start ups can the solder go through before it begins to break down? Please let me know

BGA Cycle 1: solder ball attach. BGA Cycle 2: BGA attach to board. BGA Cycle 3: BGA removal from board. BGA Cycle 4: BGA pad dress. BGA Cycle 5: BGA ball replacement. BGA Cycle 6: BGA re-attach to board. Board Cycle 1: BGA attach to board. Boar

When we have sent some of motherboards for reliability testing in a tird party laoratory. It is found that when Dye&Pry is done after 600 cycles of Thermal Cycling, in LGA socket only one of the corner solder joing had 100% type 3 crack. All other so

Hi manchella, After ATC test, two different failure modes can be present: solder FATIGUE (into bulk) or BRITTLE INTERMETALLIC fracture. So, first you have to verify this. Moreover, which brand of SMT paste have you used ? The crack into solder joint

Hi to all experts, Can anyone advice us what solder alloy to use for thermal cycling products. We are facing a lot of issues using normal solder paste SAC305. After thermal cycling the solder is cracking. Any suggestion is welcome. Thanks in advanc

Can you run one thermal cycle to attach the BGA and then a different thermal cycle to attach the connector?
