BGA basics

BGA basics | 10 July, 2012

We do SMT now, but might need to do some BGA.

I assume we need: xray or some way to inspect bga workstation bga reballing system

Does this look ok?

Can anyone give me a rough idea of what it costs to get the basics needed for very low volume BGA?

From some of the equipment we have here at the facility you could expect the following:

X Ray- ~$75K-$100K BGA Repair- ~$30K-$50K

We don't own a reballing station.

If your pick and place can handle the part placements, you are most of the way there. X-Ray for Inspection of BGA and other bottom terminations = $60K(USD) and up. BGA Rework Station $40K and up. You can reball most any BGA with your Rework station.

No panic with BGA, it is just another solderable component after you have done a few. 'hege

The prices you have been given for rework stations are for new systems. You can find cheaper systems (much cheaper) out there from used equipment dealers. X-ray will be harder to find, but you may find one that will suit your needs at a reasonable price.
