Dead-bugging a fine pitch BGA chip

in DIY by DP | 7 comments

Chris shared his experience dead-bugging BGA sized chips on our Who says BGA packages are hard to solder post.

Here is my attempt at dead-bugging a finer pitch BGA, though thankfully with fewer pins. It works, but I wouldn’t trust it to keep working in a rough environment

    Did that with a 0.5mm pitch uBGA (50 pins).
    I call it “bonding” :)
    pour epoxy, and it should last forever.

    I just threw-up in my own mouth. That’s some sick work! :-)

  3. f4eru de f4grx: would have suggested the same thing, epoxy is the way to go to make that last

    nice job!

    Another impressive electronics surgeon. Amazingly steady hands.

    Far from being as impressive as the two previously posted, still here is my take on fine pitch BGA dead-bug soldering ;) (with video!)
