Before seeing this, I was under the impression that reballing was an involved process, but with this jig the operator could strip and reball a chip in under a few minutes, which translates to a labor cost of a couple dozen centsThis is insane. In PC motherboard, the chipset is mostly in BGA packaging. Flash ROM chips these days are back in the old "DIP" (Dual In-line Package), so it's quite easy to work with. But, to think that even BGA chips could be altered with ease is just mind boggling.
