An Examination of Glass-fiber and Epoxy Interface Degradation in Printed Circuit Boards

07/12/2019 | Bhanu Sood, Michael Osterman, and Michael Pecht, Center for Advanced Life Cycle Engineering
Multilayer organic laminates, which make up over 90% of the interconnecting substrates in electronics (standard FR-4 represents 85% of the substrates used for laminates), can develop a loss of electrical insulation resistance between two biased conductors due to conductive filament formation.

PCB Reliability: Via Design

07/12/2019 | Greg Ziraldo, Advanced Assembly
When considering the long-term reliability of a PCB, you must take into account any vias on your board. While an invaluable and essential part of board design, vias introduce weaknesses and affect solderability. This article will discuss vias, the potential concerns that are introduced into your board through their implementation, and how to minimize those concerns to acceptable levels.
