Assembly Instructions


Tele: (800) 404-0204

1. Apply water soluble or no clean flux on the target PCB lands.

2. Apply a small amount of TAC flux on opposite corners of the PCB lands.

3. Note the target board land pattern orientation and the adaptor's orientation mark. Place SMT adaptor (solder ball side down) onto
the fluxed target PCB lands.

4. Reflow. For more detailed instructions on the reflowing Ironwood solder ball parts see "BGA Surface Mount Foot Soldering

5. Install the socket base assembly on the SMT adaptor with the hardware (socket base screws) provided (see Detail A for

6. Place BGA package (solder ball side down) into the socket. NOTE: BGA orientation on target PCB is critical.

7. Place the compession plate on top of the BGA package.
