Abstract

This paper presents radio-frequency (RF) modeling of ball grid array (BGA) packages with three-dimensional (3D) full-wave electromagnetic (EM) simulation. The effects of the signal traces, multi-layer substrates, bond wires, vias, and molding compounds are incorporated in the modeling of the BGA packages. The BGA packages with open-path and short-path configurations for RF measurement and modeling are studied. The RF characteristics of packages in terms of return loss and insertion loss are measured and simulated. The RF modeling results show that the EM approaches without any optimization process are able to provide good agreement between the measured and simulated S parameters of the BGA packages up to 5 GHz.
