The Consortium selected fifteen different packages with I/Os ranging from 48 to 784 and pitches varying from 0.5 to 1.27mm. The packages were mounted on multilayer FR-4 printed wiring boards (PWBs). These test vehicles (TV-2) were subjected to numerous thermal cycling conditions including - 55°C to 125°C with a near thermal shock condition.
Cyclesto-failure (CTF) test results up to 1,500 cycles are compared under this condition for 784 I/O FCBGA (fine pitch BGA), 175 I/O FPBGA (flip chip BGA), and 313 I/O PBGA (plastic BGA). Inspection results along with SEM (scanning electron microscopy) and optical cross-sectional photos revealing damage and failure mechanisms are also included.
Key words: CSP, BGA, FCBGA, FPBGA, reliability, solder joints.
