BGA vias

Electronics Forum | Sat Aug 28 11:03:44 EDT 2004 | mariels

We are currently designing a multi-layer board using a BGA with a pitch of 1mm. Need to find out what hole/pad size via and if they should be plated holes? Thanks

Knee of barrel and pad crack: Caused by thermal stress during soldering, because epoxy expands in the "z" 3X more than "x" or "y" which are restricted by the fiber. Related to: * Design of pads too large relative to hole diameter * Temperature at o

I can't see the image very well, but from what i see it looks like oxidation. looks like an ENIG finish on the board, possibly a plating issue from the bare board house, thin gold or the nickle is to thick. one other question i would get an answer t

Tented vias on ENIG boards

We have been using ENIG for 8 years as our primary board finish. We have not seen any issues with tenting the vias. We have used a number of suppliers. The ENIG from China does not seem to solder quite as well in general but only had black pad from o

We don't have plated vias on these pads.

Have the PCB fabricator use a conductive paste to fill the vias and then finish by plateing over the via. Make sure it's coplanar to the side they're on, usually secondary side for discretes. PT

I believe I've seen some board houses advertise the ability to plate vias completely shut, so that they can be placed within the outlines of a pad without causing the problems you noted. I've seen this scheme used on very densely populated digital bo

Use a PCB fab house that is capable of "Conductive Via Filling" is the way to do it right. A conductive epoxy is used to fill the drilled via PRIOR to final plating. After final plating, the surface of the "Filled Via" will appear to be the same as t

QFN84 Solder Printing Issue (QFN with Inner LGA Pad)

Recommended land and solder pattern says: VIA wall plating, via holes should be tented with solder mask on the backside and filled with solder. Solutions at this moment ? Thanks for all :)

Millerin: You are generally correct about plugging and over plating vias, but in Michaels case, the via is blind. Plugging would trap air between the bottom of the via and the plug material, causing an air pocket. When heated to soldering temperat
