Laying out HDI boards for production

Processors are getting faster & faster, applications smaller, functions more extensive and systems more complex. This trend is also being followed by circuit boards. Especially the HDI/SBU technology offers a wide range of options to implement the latest technical requirements cost-effectively.

The series of technical articles, produced in cooperation with the magazine Elektronik Praxis, doesn't just explain the benefits and offer practical tips on the implementation of an HDI design. The interface to the manufacturer is also described, examining the production of a cost-effective design that is suitable for production.
