Hand soldering a BGA using the SchmartBoard|ez
Zeta tipped us to this video of hand soldering a 400 pin BGA chip to a SchmartBoard breakout. The breakout board has a via under each contact on the BGA chip. The chip is soldered to the board by heating each via from the bottom of the PCB with a normal iron. These boards are quite expensive at around $45.
