    Hello,
    I want to replace a BGA component but I was told that you need a special device to solder it and also, to check the bga soldering with x-ray..
    Is that true? or you can replace it yourself at home?
    If so, which tools will I need?
    Thanks everyone !

    read the specs for your device. You may appreciate that the device can easily handle a reflow cycle, however the surrounding devices or pcb may not. If I implement such packages, they will be mounted first (hot air), and tested, prior to further populating. I have successfully removed devices (sacrificing pcb) and remounted on new boards, with good success. I wouldn't attempt to replace a device on a populated board.
