Board Designs

The test boards below were designed by AREA Consortium staff (principally Mike Meilunas) for specific research projects.  Design data for these boards are linked here for download and use by our members.

HTTB2015
The High Temperature Test Board 2015 was fabricated with polyimide based laminate materials to enable high temperature reflow processes.  It was used for various elevated temperature evaluations such as for passive device terminations and intermetallic growth kinetics. 

TB 2015
The 2015 Test Board was designed to provide test vehicles for alternate solder alloy, surface finish and conformal coating projects.

TB2013 Gerber Final
As part of many of our studies for 2013 a new Test Board has been designed to provide test vehicles for surface finishes, underfills, conformal coating, etc.
