The recent development of electric and electronic devices has been remarkable. The miniaturization of electronic devices and high integration are progressing by advances in mounting technology. As a result, the reliability of fatigue life has been prioritized as an important concern, since the thermal expansion difference between a package and printed circuit board causes thermal fatigue. It is demanded a long-life product which has short development time. However, it is difficult because of the interaction between each design factor. The authors have investigated the influence of design factors on the reliability of soldered joints in BGA model by using response surface method and cluster analysis. By using these methods, the interaction of all design factors was clarified. Based upon these analytical results, design engineers can rate each factor’s effect on reliability and assess the reliability of their basic design plan at the concept design stage.
