BGA warpage can cause a condition called “pad cratering”.

This condition occurs when the assembly cools down below the solidus temperature after reflow soldering and the solder joint is put under tensile loading that exceeds the cohesive strength of the PWB laminate.

The condition often leads to open circuit failures that affect assembly yields.
