Practical Dummy Components Announces Its Latest PoP Body Size

Jun 19, 2008

LOS ALAMITOS, CA � June 18, 2008 � Practical Components Inc., the leading supplier of dummy components, announces that in cases where only its mechanical characteristics are required, Practical Dummy Components can be used instead of live, functioning components. Because there is no expensive die inside the package, the cost for performing mechanical testing is significantly lower.

Due to demand for a larger body size for the PSvfBGA Package on Package (PoP), Practical Components now has availability of the Amkor� 15mmm Dummy PoP. This body size is available in a 0.65 mm pitch with a 160 I/O count top and a 0.5 mm pitch, 605 I/O bottom component.

Amkor�s award-winning package stackable very thin fine pitch BGA (PSvfBGA), (the bottom, high-density package that enables PoP stacks), has been one of the fastest growing new products in Amkor�s history.

A Practical Dummy Component is the exact mechanical equivalent of a live component used only when the physical properties of the components are required.

Practical Dummy Components are not inferior FR4 mock-ups. Practical Dummy Components are the exact same components, made on the same manufacturing lines as their live counterparts, but manufactured without the expensive die inside.
