SchmartBoard releases first hand solderable BGA prototype board
17 May 2006, Electronics Technology

SchmartBoard, the developer of a new technology that has significantly simplified the creation of electronic circuits for hobbyists and electronic engineers, has announced that its long-awaited line of BGA boards is now available.

This is the latest addition to the SchmartBoard|ez line that makes hand soldering surface mount components fast and easy.

Few options are currently available to someone that needs to prototype a circuit with a BGA. Users can either create a custom PCB, or they can use prototyping boards that will require a socket for the BGA, which can cost hundreds or even thousands. The SchmartBoard BGA boards, when used within the SchmartBoard|ez prototyping system, are said to be a fast, easy and inexpensive alternative for this problem.

Each board has the flexibility to handle the smallest BGA up to 400 balls. These 10 layer boards are lead-free and will support 0,8 mm, 1,0 mm and 1,27 mm pitches.

These BGA boards are the latest in this new family of prototyping boards to make hand-soldering of surface mount components easy. Other chips packages that are currently supported by this technology are SO, QFP, PLCC, Chip Scale, and discrete components. The BGA boards are physically connectable to existing SchmartBoards using the SchmartBridge.
