Title Printed boards and printed board assemblies - Design and use - Part 5-8: Attachment (land/joint) considerations - Area array components (BGA, FBGA, CGA, LGA)
Project Number 16408
Abstract/Scope Provides information on land pattern geometries used for the surface attachment of electronic components with area array terminations in the form of solder balls, solder columns or protective coated lands. The intent of the information presented herein is to provide the appropriate size, shape and tolerances of surface mount land patterns to ensure sufficient area for the appropriate solder joint, and also allow for inspection, testing and reworking of those solder joints.

(1) Date of ratification (dor) date when the Technical Board notes the approval of an EN (and HD for CENELEC), from which time the standard may be said to be approved

(2) Date of availability (dav) date when the definitive text in the official language versions of an approved CEN/CENELEC publication is distributed by the Central Secretariat

(3) Date of announcement (doa) latest date by which the existence of an EN (and HD for CENELEC), a TS or a CWA has to be announced at national level

(4) Date of publication (dop) latest date by which an EN has to be implemented at national level by publication of an identical national standard or by endorsement

(5) Date of withdrawal (dow) latest date by which national standards conflicting with an EN (and HD for CENELEC) have to be withdrawn

(6) This list of normative references is purely indicative. The only official list of normative reference is the list of the published standard.
