Dear Electronics Colleague:

This summer has brought some great rock shows to Chicago that I have been privileged to see: Jack White put on a 3 hour show at the iconic Chicago Theater with his "garage rock" sound. Queens of the Stone Age thundered through an older theater in Milwaukee with a  wall of sound and St Vincent played an energetic set at the Pitchfork festival. I am most excited about another upcoming show that features the 80's techno sound of Devo. Can't wait to see all the devotees wearing their devo gear!

If your trainer is tied up in their "other" job/s, or you have recently lost the services of a trainer, BEST can "fill in" with either a contract training resource for a few months.  

Once the new trainer is identified make sure to send them to BEST to get the right start for becoming your onsite trainer.

Reballing a Leadless Device to Simplify Rework 

         

Reworking some leadless device locations due to thermal considerations, device size and location of neighboring components is very challenging, even if you "bump" the device. BEST has an alternate solution to the replacement of these devices.

Instead of employing soldering paste and "bumping" the device, the leadless component is simply reballed and turned into a hybrid BGA. These are easier to place, can produce less voiding then other techniques and gives you the same thermal coverage.

See our article here.

We can perform this as a service, develop a process for you or manufacture the reballing devices you want.
