Miniaturization with Help of Reduced Component to Component Spacing

Jonas Sjoberg, Ranilo Aranda, David Geiger, Anwar Mohammed, Murad Kurwa; Flextronics International

Miniaturization and the integration of a growing number of functions in portable electronic devices require an extremely high packaging density for the active and passive components. There are many ways to increase the packaging density and a few examples would be to stack them with Package on Package (PoP), fine pitch CSP's, 01005 and last but not least reduced component to component spacing for active and passive components (...)

This paper will discuss different layouts, assembly and material selections to reduce component to component spacing down to 100-125um (4-5mil) from today's mainstream of 150-200um (6-8mil) component to component spacing.
