Here is a listing of the most common devices in the realm of surface-mounted devices:
BGA‘s come in many different configurations.
- CBGA, (Ceramic Ball Grid Array). The thickness and depth are maximum dimensions. The solder balls are made of a high melt non-eutectic composition (10% Sn/ 90% Pb).
- DSBGA, (Die Size Ball Grid Array). DSBGA is a type of BGA package where the body size is defined to coincide as closely as possible with a specific die size. These packages are sometimes called CSP packages. The solder balls consist of eutectic lead/ tin solder.
- eBGA, (Plastic Enhanced BGA). This is a wire bonded, cavity-down package.
- FBGA, (Fine Line or Fine-Pitch Ball Grid Array). These are BGA packages with grid pitches less than 1.0 mm. These devices use Flip-Chip interconnect technology and are sometimes called Chip Scale Packages. The solder balls typically consist of Eutectic lead/tin solder.
- FCBGA, (Flip Chip Ball Grid Array). These also come in micro-FCBGA packages.
- MBGA, (Micro Fine Line BGA).
- PBGA, (Plastic Ball Grid Array Packages). These come in rectangular (R-PBGA-B) and square (S-PBGA-B) styles. Maximum depth is 3.50 mm. The ball matrix is represented within the parentheses.
- TBGA, (Tape Ball Grid Array). TBGA packages are made from strips of Polyamide tape. A metal plate “stiffener” is incorporated on top of the package for added strength. The nominal solder ball diameter for high melt solder balls is 0.63 mm and 0.60mm for low melt.
