Placing BGA packages

  1. Hi, all

    I am planning on designing a new board. Unfortunately, I have to use at
    least one IC in BGA package (this one only comes in BGA).

    Who can do a placement of a BGA package in a small quantities, e.q. not a
    large set up cost?

    I will be doing a couple of boards initially. Package is 196 pin,
    15*15*0.8P1.0.

    Thanks,
    Rudolf

    You may like to try Precision Circuits here in Melbourne, they do
    small production runs for prototyping, manufacture of PCB's and
    placement of components.

    They will also X-ray your boards to confirm solder bonding of the BGA
    chips.

    Here is their web address

  4. I have toyed with the idea of using BGA chips a few times but I have heard
    to many horror stories about contract manufacturers using cowboy methods for
    placing them. May I suggest you do your homework before chosing a
    manufacturer. Make sure the manufacturer knows how to read the datasheet on
    the particulars of soldering the device in question. A collegue of mine has
    used BGA parts and has only had success with some company in melbourne. I
    can track down the info if you are interested.

    Anyway, the person in question told me his story but i wasn't really paying
    attention. IIRC he was talking about hotspots and something along the lines
    programming an IR reflow machine to prevent such problems. I don't know how
    its done but when you find out it would be nice if you reported it here ;-)

    Cheers.
