Can SnPb BGA's be reflowed reliably using SAC305 solder paste? | 12 September, 2009

My customer wants an SnPb 63/37 BGA soldered using SAC305 solder paste. What data is avaiable showing the long term reliability of the intermetallics of the solder joints?

First, make sure that 63/37 BGA can withstand higher reflow temperature of of lead free SAC305

You as, "What data is available showing the long term reliability of the intermetallics of the solder joints?"

Certainly, an assessment of the long-term reliability of lead contaminated SAC solder connections is unrealistic, because of the short period SAC has been in use, much less lead contaminated SAC. Several studies have been made on lead contaminated lead-free solder connections. * Dynamics of Lead Contaminated Solder Joint Failure aimsolder.com/techarticles/Lead%20Contamination%20in%20Lead-Free%20Electronics%20Assembly.pdf * "Evaluation of Nickel/Palladium/Gold-Finished Surface-Mount Integrated Circuits (July 2001)" focus.ti.com/quality/docs/gencontent.tsp?templateId=5909&navigationId=11219&path=templatedata/cm/ecoinfo/data/leadfree_appnotes * Look for a 2004 JGPP lead-free study
