PBGA Cross Section Voids
PBGA 3D Cross-Sectioned Voids in Molding Compound - Application Note 206
Sample & Method
The Acoustic Solid shown in Application Note #202 has been sectioned vertically to reveal internal features. Since the Acoustic Solid is a virtual representation of the PBGA, including all internal features, sectioning is nondestructive.
The die (blue) lies at the center of the package near the bottom. To the left and right of the die is the FR4 substrate (also blue). No defects are associated with these features. The molding compound above these features, however, displays numerous yellow items. These are voids in the molding compound. A few of the larger voids are blue.
