    The article deals with fanout patterns. The effectiveness of a fanout pattern on several large BGA contributes to the route-ability of a design. The BGA fanout is only a part of the routing solution, which may also include escape traces and general interconnect routing of the pins. The goal of...

  • Preventing Voids in CSP and BGA Underfill Encapsulants. Loh, Karl; Ibe, Edward // Circuits Assembly;Oct2004, Vol. 15 Issue 10, p42 

    The article reports on preventing voids in CSP and BGA underfill encapsulants. CSPs and EGAs are capable of surviving thermal cycling requirements without being encapsulated, but are not designed to withstand repeated mechanical shock. Yet handheld devices must survive drop testing. For CSP and...
