The Orange County Chapter of the IPC Designers Council will hold a Lunch and Learn meeting on Tuesday, January 21, 2020, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. The guest speaker is Gerry Partida, senior field application engineer with Summit Interconnect.
Gerry will present "Microvias: Have You Designed for Reliability? How to detect weak microvias and avoid costly assembly defects and customer field failures."
As component pin densities get tighter with each passing year, designers have been pushed to the use of HDI with more microvias and blind/buried via structures. As a result, tighter via densities and signal integrity requirements in printed boards have revealed reliability concerns with microvia structures in high performance products. Avoiding post fabrication microvia failures is critical to the success of your products and there are things that designers need to know.
Gerry’s presentation will review concerns and reliability testing of microvias. He will provide an overview of the HDI processes and present the use of current test methods and the superiority of testing with IPC-D-coupon and IPC-TM-650 test methods 188.8.131.52 and 2.6.27. He will also discuss the warning statement in the forthcoming IPC-6012E, Qualification and Performance Specification for Rigid Printed Boards.
