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.

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.

Reliability Takes on a New Urgency

09/05/2018 | Patty Goldman, I-Connect007
Consumers wanted a reliable car that wouldn’t break down on the road; a computer that wouldn’t crash; a phone network that wouldn’t drop our calls; the plane we were hurtling across the sky in to stay in the air and land safely, with the wheels down. In retrospect, those seem rather simple wants, and the industry certainly wants to deliver.
