Fiber Weave Impact on Crosstalk of High Speed Communication Channels in Glass Epoxy Packages

Some packaging technologies utilize glass epoxy substrates that are composed of glass fiber bundles and epoxy resin. Because of the different electrical properties of glass and resin, the signal traces can have some variability, depending on their position with respect to the weaves. One of the parameters that are affected by the inhomogeneity of the substrate is the far end crosstalk. Crosstalk may significantly increase, hindering the link budget of high speed communication channels, especially in the dense routing areas. This paper addresses the crosstalk variations, in the frequency and time domains, due to the fiber weave effect (FIVE). Analytical and numerical results are presented to provide a physical insight into the phenomenon, followed by a mitigation technique to minimize the impact.


Glass fiber reinforced sealants for solid oxide fuel cells
Timurkutluk, Bora; Altan, Tolga; Celik, Selahattin; Timurkutluk, Cigdem; PALACI, Yüksel (Elsevier BV, 2019-07-05)
Novel sealants for solid oxide fuel cells are developed by addition of glass fiber into glass ceramic as a reinforcement material. Various sealants including three different fiberglass types and four different structural designs are fabricated. The mechanical and sealing performances of the sealants are investigated via tensile and short stack leakage tests, respectively. The tensile tests reveal that the fracture strength of the sealants varies depending on the type and number of the glass fiber used. In g...
Impact of Fiber Weaves on 56 Gbps SerDes Interface in Glass Epoxy Packages
Durgun, Ahmet Cemal (2015-01-01)
Some package substrates are composed of glass fiber bundles and epoxy resin which have different electrical properties. These differences result in variations in characteristic impedance and propagation speeds, which may be detrimental at high data rates. The insertion loss (IL), within pair skew and differential to common mode conversion ratio of transmission lines may drastically increase due to the fiber weave effect. Consequently, the link budget of high speed communication channels may be significantly...
Interface studies between epoxy and recycled rubber
Sipahi-Saglam, E; Kaynak, Cevdet; Akovali, G (2000-07-19)
This work covers studies on interfaces between epoxy and recycled rubber used as toughening phase in epoxy resins. Different surface modification techniques were used to improve the compatibility at the interface between the rubber particles and the epoxy matrix. Silane coupling agents, plasma surface modification and acrylic acid/benzoylperoxide were used to enhance the surface properties of rubber particles. Rubber parts of grinded scrap car tyres with a size range of 355-500 mum after surface treatment w...
Solid phase epitaxial thickening of boron and phosphorus doped polycrystalline silicon thin films formed by aluminium induced crystallization technique on glass substrate
Ozmen, O. Tuzun; Karaman, M.; Sedani, S. H.; Sagban, H. M.; Turan, Raşit (Elsevier BV, 2019-11-01)
Aluminium induced crystallization (AIC) technique can be used to form the high-quality and large-grained polycrystalline silicon (poly-Si) thin films, which are with the thickness of similar to 200 nm and used as a seed layer, on silicon nitride coated glass substrate. Thanks to aluminium metal in AIC process, the natural doping of AIC thin films is p(+) type (similar to 2 x 10(18) cm(-3)). On the other hand, recombination of carriers can be controlled by partial doping through the defects that may have adv...
Flexible supercapacitor electrodes with vertically aligned carbon nanotubes grown on aluminum foils
Dogru, Itir Bakis; Durukan, Mete Batuhan; Turel, Onur; Ünalan, Hüsnü Emrah (2016-06-01)
In this work, vertically aligned carbon nanotubes (VACNTs) grown on aluminum foils were used as flexible supercapacitor electrodes. Aluminum foils were used as readily available, cheap and conductive substrates, and VACNTs were grown directly on these foils through chemical vapor deposition (CVD) method. Solution based ultrasonic spray pyrolysis (USP) method was used for the deposition of the CNT catalyst. Direct growth of VACNTs on aluminum foils ruled out both the internal resistance of the supercapacitor...
