This trend is imposed by the market demand for increasingly portable devices, therefore of low weight, and capable of integrating many functions: the real challenge is to reduce the size of the devices, miniaturizing them, and, at the same time, to increase their performance.
The target can be reached basically by working on the structure of the printed circuit board by increasing the density of the components on the surface and the number of connections between the layers that make it up: this need has therefore led to the birth and diffusion of " HDI - High Density Interconnection" structures.
All circuits with pitches’ density per surface with values greater than 20 pitches/cm² greater than traditional printed circuit boards (PCBs) are defined as high interconnection density PCBs (HDI). This therefore results in smaller size for design parameters such as tracks less than 100 ?m/4mils wide, laser holes with a diameter less than 150 ?m/6mils and pitches with a diameter less than 400 ?m/16mils.

In particular, we have highlighted that the moisture absorbed by the base material can generate delamination during the assembly of PCBs.
With this second article, relating to the risks generated on PCBs by the presence of humidity, we deepen the subject and deal, in particular, with the impact of humidity on the Tg of the base materials and the consequences on the quality of PCBs and PCBAs.
The Tg of a polymeric material (laminates and pre-impregnates are partially made of resin) represents the temperature value at which the glass transition begins which we could define as the temperature at which the resin changes its mechanical characteristics starting to soften: for this reason it is important to choose the base material in relation to the expected conditions of use of each PCB.
