Hi Reman01,

I have done that before when I was in Motorola. What kind of ball are you trying to repair? How many pieces of BGA chip do you need to repair a day? If it is not too many, you can do it by yourself. It is a lot, such as 100 to 1000 pieces a day, then you need to source for two to three venders to do it for your company 'cause one vender may raise up the price to a level that is not acceptable.

I hope this will help.

Hi! One technique: 1. Remove all balls 2.Make a mask(stensil)for reballing.The holes of the mask must be 0.8-0.9 the size of the pads. 3. Reball chips 4. Reflow chips Good luck

Hi

Yes,we have done quite a bit of reballing of BGAs with a good success rate.You can follow these steps:

1.Clean the surafce of BGA by removing all the balls and flattening the surface with solder wick. 2.Apply flux paste on the surface. 3.Get a stencil for reballing 4.Align the stencil and reball the BGA 5.Reflow the BGA
