Cost is a powerful technology driver, and it is no surprise that cost is often the main driver for today's contract electronics manufacturers (CEMs). Because CEMs build entire systems, they often have a broader perspective on the cost impacts of different technologies.

In this presentation, I explore different aspects of Flip Chip and Chip Scale Packaging technologies. Certain characteristics of these technologies will unquestionably influence their actual implementation in high-volume production, making some architectures more preferable than others.

The materials that will be presented are derived from the positions presented in two published articles entitled "Flip Chip DCA - No Way" and "The Mini BGA Beats the Micro BGA."
