BGA rework



BGA rework | 31 October, 2000

I'm reworking BGA with a "SRT Summit 2000". This machine uses a nozzle of the same size of the BGA to conduct nitrogen to the top of the BGA. When I rework big PBGAs (318PBGA, 388PBGA) I've got shorts at the corners (100% of the times!). I think the problem is the design of the nozzle (mine is simply a short pipe with square cross section). Could anyone help me? (maybe someone using the same rework machine). Thank you.

Massimo: Do you encounter or see warpage of the device or the PCB, I think I remember that there was a thread about this topic of shorts of the corner pins of BGA. You might try the archive.

Thank you Wolfgang, I've found something usefull in the thread, even if unfortunately nobody talks about the design of the nozzle. About the warpage, I clearly see the warpage of the corners of the BGA. To avoid it I'll keep the temperture of the nitrogen flow as low as possible.
