In assembly the bare board is populated with electronic components, called a "printed circuit board assembly" (PCBA). In through-hole technology, the component leads are inserted in holes surrounded by conductive pads; In surface-mount technology (SMT), the component is placed on the PCB so that the pins line up with the conductive pads or lands on the surfaces of the PCB.

I'm doing SMT of lead-free solder BGA on FR4 Ni-Au PCB. The solder paste I'm using is Sn/Ag/Cu and reflow with peak temp at 240C. I found there are voids(1-2) in almost every solder joint(500 micron in dia) under xray. And the void size is violate the IPC-7095 standard. I tried to find out which parameter in my process cause the void. I tried different solder paste(different brand, composition, even Pb/Sn), differnt reflow peak temp(220 to 260), different heating rate, duration above melting point, multiple reflow.....There are still voids in my every solder joint. And finally I even have voids in my lead-tin solder joint. This is really a big headache to me. Could anyone please help. I've almost tried everything I can. Thanks and every input are welcomed.
