SchmartBoard To Unveil First Hand Solderable BGA Prototype Board

EDS Show, Las Vegas, NV) (PRWEB) May 2, 2006

SchmartBoard, the developer of a new technology that has significantly simplified the creation of electronic circuits for hobbyists and electronic engineers, has announced that its long-awaited line of BGA boards will become available in May. This is the latest addition to the SchmartBoard|ez line that makes hand soldering surface mount components fast and easy.

Few options are currently available to someone that needs to prototype a circuit with a BGA. Users can either create a custom PCB, or they can use prototyping boards that will require a socket for the BGA, which can cost hundreds or even thousands of dollars. The SchmartBoard BGA boards, when used within the SchmartBoard|ez prototyping system, are a fast, easy and inexpensive alternative for this problem.

SchmartBoard demonstrate the BGA boards on May 2nd 2006 at the Electronic Distribution Show and Conference (EDS) in Las Vegas.

Each board has the flexibility to handle the smallest BGA up to 400 balls. These 10 layer boards are lead free and will support 0.8mm, 1.0mm and 1.27mm pitches.

The BGA boards, which will have a suggested retail price of $ 44.99, are the latest in this new family of prototyping boards that make hand soldering surface mount components easy. Other chips packages that are currently supported by this technology are SO, QFP, PLCC, Chip Scale, and discrete components. The BGA boards will be physically connectable to existing SchmartBoards using the SchmartBridge.
