Abstract

Low temperature co-fired ceramics (LTCCs) are multilayered ceramic based components, which can be used as high precision electronic devices in highly loaded environments. In many applications, LTCC end components are exposed to mechanical stresses, which may yield different types of failure coming from different locations, thus decreasing the mechanical reliability of the device. The aim of this work is to assess the mechanical strength of LTCC parts and investigate the influence of the metal internal structure (supporting the maximum load) on the local fracture response. Strength of different positions (e.g. near vias, metal-pads, ceramic layers) has been measured under biaxial loading and compared with a reference bulk LTCC. The strength results were interpreted in the framework of Weibull theory. Fractographic analyses revealed a significant effect of the first metallisation layer below the tensile surface on the strength reliability of the structure, which should be considered to optimise LTCC designs.
