Deposition of Solder Paste into High Density Cavity Assemblies

Fernando Coma, Jeffrey Kennedy, Thilo Sack; Celestica Corporation

Circuit functional density requirements continue to drive innovative approaches to high performance packaging. Some new approaches include; aggressive space reduction, embedded solutions, and those that offer some form of risk reduction and rework potential are now options that are being explored by customers. Requirements for assembly of these types of packages necessitate the deposition of solder paste and assembly of components into cavities of the substrates to gain z-axis density as well as area functional density. Advances in the fabrication of PWB's with cavities using newly developed laser micro-fabrication processes along with increased circuit pitch density of 50 micron lines and spaces permit new applications for high performance electronic substrates.
