BGA REWORK | 10 October, 2001

I used to rework many types of BGA's including ceramic. We always preheated the whole board to around 115 c before attempting to remove or place. Now I find myself in a new company with different ideas. Do any of you have a site that has exact recommended times and temperatures for PCB as well as BGA. I am trying to prevent additional damage to the PCB, i.e. during board expanding to compensate for heat as well solder joint issues contributed to not preheating the board.

Thanks, Chris

Preheating sounds good to me.

Look here to get started

While little of this applies to inorganic boards, it doesn't a rocket scientist to make the extention.
