IPC Design and Assembly Process Implementation for Ball Grid Arrays ( BGAs). IPCC delivers useful and practical information to anyone currently using BGAs or FBGAs. Many issues have become especially important due to the. Lead-free solder has numerous undesirable characteristics, such as a higher melting point and reduced wetting than its leaded predecessor.

Common causes include contamination, ball or solder paste oxidation, and board warpage. The combination of all the issues drove the development of the C revision to the BGA implementation standard.

IPCC Focuses on Changes in BGA Manufacturing

Additionally, he is president of BeamWorks Inc. Specific solder alloy requirements are addressed for users who are attaching dissimilar package materials. As the chairman of this committee, I invite and welcome your input to help shape ippc important industry document.

Originally, many thought that these open circuits were in the solder joint or were caused by peeling copper. However, leaded surface mount and thru-hole component solder joints usually are visually inspected, not X-rayed.

In BGAs, however, we cannot see the joints visually because they are hidden under the package, making X-ray a common inspection method. Results of the survey will help organize the amendment being discussed for IPC B.

The form also is designed such that participants may provide unique comments. The target audiences for this document are managers, designers and process engineers who are responsible for design, assembly, inspection and repair processes of printed boards and printed board assemblies. IPCD describes design and assembly implementation for ball grid array BGA and fine-pitch BGA FBGA technology, focusing on inspection, repair and reliability issues associated with design and assembly of printed boards using these packages.


These revisions were driven in large part by customer concerns. The standard takes another look at X-ray inspection techniques, which have vastly improved and are often used to examine solder connections that are under the package.

The IPC committee decided that because it is possible to minimize voids, but almost impossible to eliminate them, it was reasonable to set a limit on acceptance criteria that can be met easily using sensible process parameters.

Their focus on end product reliability prompted the creation of new information that focuses on mechanical as well as thermal stresses. A range of processes have been examined so the standard can give users the latest information on best practices.

As manufacturers and OEMs grapple with the challenges faced using BGAs with high lead counts and fine pitches, IPC is providing guidance for dealing with this high density. Ray Prasad of Prasad Consultancy Lpc spearheaded the effort. It is worth noting that voids are not new to BGAs. It also provides describes how to successfully implement robust design and assembly processes for printed board assemblies using 70995 as well as ways to upc some common anomalies which can occur during BGA assembly.

Based on the input of this committee, I am glad to report that IPC D has been updated to include void-acceptance criteria. Voids are seen in thru-hole and other surface mount joints. The shock often causes BGA connections to separate.


IPCC: Design and Assembly Process Implementation for BGAs

There are many reasons for ic phenomenon, which stems from new laminate formulations to address the higher lead-free temperatures and thinner layers at the surface creating less resin over the glass reinforcement. One issue that has received the greatest attention in this revision is the acceptance criterion for voids in BGAs. The demand for high density is increasing the number of terminations and 70955 lead spacing to smaller dimensions.

The other area that has received considerable attention in this revision is BGA rework using hot air and laser methods, as well as ways to prevent damage to adjacent components.

Target audiences for this document are managers, design and process engineers, as well as operators and technicians who deal with electronics assembly, inspection and repair processes.

There have been concerns raised in the industry, and it was highly recommended in IPC that solder mask-defined lands are undesirable because they impact reliability adversely.

If ilc inspections are done for other types of components, voids definitely will be seen. It is a condition where reflowed solder ball and reflowed solder paste do not coalesce forming an incomplete bond that is unreliable.

Several solutions are recommended, such as putting glue dots or underfilling solder mask defined lands, as well as using excess solder paste at the corners.
