Dear Electronics Assembly Colleague:
As part of my ongoing cultural education of my son we recently went to a Led Zepplin tribute concert playing 3 hours of Led Zepplin classics. This band featured the son of arguably one rock's best drummers seen here. It was great show in which the younger musicians did justice to the Zoso sound.

All the best,
Bob Wettermann

Non Contact Solder Excavation

BEST recently added to its capability set a method for excavating solder from a device or on a PCB. This is an programmable non-contact excavation system which can be used in a variety of applications such as......

a.)  Reducing the number of reflow cycles a BGA die is exposed to upon
b.)  Reduce potential pad and laminate damage by not coming in to contact with the PCB
c.)  Be able to excavate solder from a plated throughole of a heavy thermal mass board
d.)  Be able to automate the rework process for very high volume PCB assemblies cost effectively 

Call Laura Ripoli at (847) 797-9250 to see how this may help on you next rework project.  

 
BGA Rework-Inspection

BGA REWORK - The Process of Inspection

After device placement the BGA site needs to be inspected and meet the criteria established for the assembly. This criteria can be established either as being in IPC-A-610 or a home grown one with the use of IPC-7095. Review more information on inspection here.

 
Need IPC-A-600 Training?
BEST now offers IPC-A-600 training at its Rolling Meadows locations (we can also come to you). The CIS classes for this inspection of unpopulated PCBs (designed for incoming acceptance inspection) are as follows:

    March 25-27, June 10-12

The class also consists of a tour of a local board shop which will show the student how the boards are fabricated.
