Re: [uCsimm] Question on soldering BGA's (ELAN)

For difficult, short fab runs I've used Best Technologies
in Texas:
        Best Technologies (BTI)
        Phone: 972 429-9305
        FAX: 972 429-9217

I haven't yet used BTI for BGA parts, but I checked
with them a few weeks ago and they confirmed that
they're set up to handle them.

BTI isn't exactly cheap, but they've done superb work
with every job I've sent them.
