ABSTRACT: Multi-layered printed circuit boards (PCBs) contain a multi-layered structure that is suitable for high-speed and high-frequency applications. Hence, they are used extensively in electronic packaging assemblies for high-density applications. However, numerous composite parts and complex material properties of multi-layer PCBs complicate the reliability simulation of PCB model. This paper deals with a finite element analysis intended to describe numerically the behavior of multi-layered multi-materials PCB model (combination of metallic and composite plies) in the drop-impact performance. Through the comparison of physical drop test results, the fully multi-layered model illustrates higher accuracy if compared with that of the traditional simplified isotropic model and orthotropic model. The effects of material properties for the multi-layer PCB under drop-impact shock have also been investigated.Microelectronics Reliability.
