Proposals for Server Industry
Proposals by Industry
For the realization of the trending 5G, ultra-high-speed and ultra-low-latency connections, multi-terminal connections, and ultra-high-speed and high-volume communications will become necessary. It is anticipated that high-speed and high-performance CPUs, high-capacity memory allocation, and large, multi-functional PCBs will be required to fulfill these needs. Given this, three major trends in mounting are expected, namely, larger and heavier BGA, an increase in the number of DIMM connectors, and larger and heavier PCBs.
Proposals of Panasonic Connect
To respond to mounting related changes, and industry requirements in the future, Panasonic has prepared solutions by predicting future trends.
First is a solution for mounting of large and heavy BGA packages. In 2023, Panasonic has already succeeded in mounting BGA packages of 120 mm on all four sides, weighing 300 g, and plans to further expand the support range in the future.
Next, Panasonic has prepared solutions for large and heavy PCBs. These solutions support 1,500 mm long PCBs using slide mounting. With improved retention, these solutions can support PCBs of up to 10 kg.
This section introduces items that help realize the above solutions.
