Sept 2010 Vol. 2, Iss. 33
The training sessions on the IPCA-610 revision changes were strongly attended. If you were not able to make any of these webtorials an archived version along with good participant questions can be had here. Again we invite any questions on the material presented in the new standard.
LGA Bumping for Placement and Rework
LGA packages are becoming more prevalent and present both placement and rework challenges. The most common issues include: making sure that solder voiding is limited, the lack of inspection space underneath the device and the skewing of parts embedded in to some LGAs.
|New Class in Leadless Device Rework|
Based on the success at recent APEX conferences as well as the increasing demand related to the usage of leadless devices BEST has developed a class on leadless device rework.
