The company's latest BGA socket-adapter systems promise to solve reflow temperature mismatch issues when using lead-free devices on existing boards with standard solder profiles. Reportedly, the systems eliminate the extra costs and time delays associated with changing profiles or redesigning boards. In use, lead-free device packages solder to RoHS-compliant adapters in a high-temperature reflow profile. The boards are processed with standard sockets, employing tin/lead solder ball terminals, without changing the board soldering profile. The device/adapter assembly is then plugged into the board-mounted socket after processing. Additionally, integrating the adapter system into RoHS-exempt designs protects components from higher reflow temperatures and eliminates the need to scrap existing boards.
