Packaging - Does Xilinx support rework/reballing of BGA packages?


If a BGA package is removed from a board, can the package be reballed and remounted to the PCB?


Xilinx does not recommend any rework/reballing for BGAs. Once the part is removed from the board, Xilinx does not guarantee reliability of the part if it is remounted on the PCB.
A maximum of three reflow cycles (including initial assembly, rework and reballing) are allowed.
