I am in the process of setting up a small design laboratory and one of our first projects include the use of a 584-BGA microcontroller. This means that we'd have to use an 8 layer design, something that we have never done before, and we are not aware of anyone who does similar stuff locally in our country. You can imagine how this affects our lead-time.
We are looking to find a way of fabricating
Any idea of what equipment would be used in the fabrication process, from the Gerber file to fully assembled PCB. For clarity, we know that we need a circuit printer with fine-pitch capability, a pick and place machine and a reflow oven. What we don't know is what we should be looking for in all the equipment, save for the pick and place machine.
Arguments against trying to do the PCB assembly ourselves would be very much appreciated.
