    ABSTRACT: In this paper, physics-based computer-aided-design (CAD) models for through and buried vias in parallel-plate environments are presented based on radial transmission-line theory. The crosstalk power transferred by the TEM parallel-plate mode between vias is characterized, and extended to the treatment of vias in finite substrates by means of image theory. The presented CAD models can be combined with lumped and distributed circuit elements, as well as linear and nonlinear devices, providing an accurate and fast procedure for the global modeling of high-speed electronic circuits. The corresponding simulation time for representative single or multiple via configurations has been drastically reduced compared to full-wave simulations while maintaining comparable accuracy

    ABSTRACT: An equivalent circuit model of a circular-pad grounding via is proposed based on cavity modal analysis. The modes of the via are derived analytically. Each mode is represented by an equivalent circuit taking into account ohmic losses, as well as losses due to spatial and surface wave radiation. It is shown that the degradation of grounding via characteristics at high frequencies is caused by the multimode effects and radiation. The accuracy of the proposed semi-analytical via model is comparable with that of full-wave analysis up to 75 GHz. It is fast and is easily incorporated in high-frequency circuit simulators.

    ABSTRACT: This paper discusses an industrial case study in which data mining has been applied to solve a quality engineering problem in electronics assembly. During the assembly process, solder balls occur underneath some components of printed circuit boards. The goal is to identify the cause of solder defects in a circuit board using a data mining approach. Statistical process control and design of experiment approaches did not provide conclusive results. The paper discusses features considered in the study, data collected, and the data mining solution approach to identify causes of quality faults in an industrial application
