April 17: IPC Webinar on Weak Interface/Stacked Microvia Reliability


Reading time ( words)

For the upcoming IPC Wisdom Wednesday Webinar on April 17, the topic will be on weak interface/stacked microvia reliability concerns, to be presented by Dennis Fritz, IPC V-TSL-MVIA Co-Chair. The webinar is scheduled for 10:00–10:45 am CDT.

IPC has issued an industry warning on microvia reliability for high performance products. A number of IPC OEM member companies have presented examples of microvia failures that were not observed until after bare printed board fabrication, inspection and acceptance.

This free webinar will discuss why IPC has issued this warning and will provide an overview of this problem, with examples of the different conditions of concern. It will also cover how IPC has organized to address the problem, including sub-teams formed earlier this year at IPC APEX EXPO.

To gain a deeper understanding of this issue and how it may impact the design and testing of bare boards, register today by clicking here.

A Guide to High-reliability PCBs from Design to Specification

07/24/2019 | Jeff Beauchamp, NCAB Group
Creating reliable PCBs is an outcome of considering all aspects that can affect reliability as early as possible in the design process. The further down the design process, the more expensive and risky it can be to fix. As they say, everything starts with the design. Because a good board design improves the reliability of the end product and lessens the risk of failure.

Reliability... It All Comes Down to the Landing

07/17/2019 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
Our industry is embarking on a new age of technical development to achieve much higher levels of overall reliability that will be required of the devices we fabricate. Whether in medical devices, autonomous vehicles, or in IoT, reliability will be crucial to both our success and safety.

Stacked Microvia Reliability: Ongoing Work and Upcoming IPC Conference

04/24/2019 | Pete Starkey, I-Connect007
One year ago, Happy Holden's review of the 2018 IPC High-Reliability Forum reported the presentation of J.R. Strickland and Jerry Magera, who described research at MSI Applied Technology into overcoming the risk of stacked microvia failures escaping standard quality assurance procedures. Their report provided a basis for the IPC white paper IPC-WP-023, which addressed reliability issues associated with stacked microvias and included data collected from several other printed circuit manufacturers.
