Specific Design Guidelines for FPT Packages

  • Phil P. Marcoux


This section contains design guidelines to satisfy the various “abilities” that a product must meet. The guidelines are derived from the author’s and other’s experiences of the past several years involvement with fine pitch and surface mount technology. The abilities that are incorporated in this section are:
  • Designability

  • Manufacturability

  • Repairability

  • Reliability

  • Testability

  • Marketability
