Preventing BGA Component Warp During Rework
image
The type of warping addressed here can cause bridging and shorts at the outer corners of the device during replacement. This problem can require more rework at the BGA site, surely no fun at all. It's generally understood that some minor distortion occurs in BGA components and circuit boards when heated, due to the varying thermal coefficient of expansion (TCE) of all the different materials. In the BGA component, this effect is ...
