Introduction to mounting and soldering of BGAs/QFNs
The expansion in the use of BGAs and QFNs across the industry has resulted in many companies having to consider whether or not they want to invest in this field of work. Inevitably new practices and techniques can appear daunting, and implementing changes can be challenging. Familiarising new and more experienced staff to new practices through an introductory course such as this can reap rewards, helping operators feel more confident, supervisors be more assured and even designers better prepared for working with these component types.
This course has been designed for staff new to solder BGAs and QFNs.
