Mirco BGA Rework

BEST recently performed a process development for one of the smallest electronic component footprints we have yet to see. As seen below, the package size was 3000 x 3000 µm (118 x 118 mils) with a 165 µm (6mil) pitch using a 75 µ m (3 mil) solder ball diameter. One of the challenges was making sure that the re-flowed air did not "blow away" the device and disturb the solder joints. Another big challenge was the placement accuracy,  given the dimensions and not having any solder mask on the development board.
