In application note AN-657-1.4 they indicate the use of a spatula to rework a heatsink for a TCFCBGA Arria V device. I reviewed the docuemnt but it does not show a picture or part number of the spatula.

Could I get some information of the spatula they are referring to.

Thank you,

Hi @PSchi6​ 

There is no specific type/shape of spatula. Any tool that is able to exert some pressure to separate the heatsink from the device will work.
