RELIABILITY OF ENEPIG BY SEQUENTIAL THERMAL CYCLING AND AGING By Duane Benson, Screaming Circuits There are two primary types of causes of board warping: process related at the fab or assembly shop, and layout related issues. Determining the root cause is generally a bit of an iterative process. It's tempting to start right off with your fab or assembly partner, but you The Root Causes & Solutions for Warped PC Boards need some information before giving them a call. You'll need such things as the amount of warpage per inch, board size and thickness. With that, you need to take a good look at your design and con- sider copper pours, component size and compo- nent placement. This article talks about some of the design rules that can contribute to warping.
