PCB build-up and density classification


Public, Members and Partners


The DfM guideline on PCB build-up and density classification, what’s in it for you?
What choices to make for the PCB build-up? Will your design require six or eight layers, or even more...? Is it OK to use microVIA’s in your design? When using a small pitch BGA, will you use minimum track width and spacing all over the board? How to work with density classes and basis on which to make a selection? How does all this impact DfM quality and PCB cost?
During the workshop, you will get an introduction to the guideline. Next, with the aid of a case, examples will be given relating to the choices involved in the PCB build-up.
Barco will present the implementation of a tool to handle the density classes. A comparison between different build-up options versus density classes will conclude the session.
At the start of the workshop, participants will receive a complimentary hardcopy of the guideline.
