Reflow Soldering (BGA)

Q: How do enthusiast tackle the problem of using BGA components?

A: Use a Toaster Oven!

Here is a good site that teaches you how to use a Toaster Oven for Reflow Soldering: LINK

The basic idea is make absolute sure that your BGA component is nicely aligned to the PCB board, then use the heat of the oven to melt the solder balls, wait for it to cool, and wola~ the component has been nicely soldered onto the board.

This is ADXRS300, a 1 axis Gyrometer made by Analog Devices.

Since we are looking at the ADXRS300, might as well look at what this chip is for. DATASHEET

Take care not to over cook your components! ;p
