Paper Title:
Influence of Internal Architectures on the Fracture Response of LTCC Components
  Abstract

Low Temperature Co-fired Ceramics (LTCCs) are layered ceramic based components, which – in recent years - are increasingly used as high precision electronic devices (e.g. mobile and automotive technologies) in highly loaded (temperatures, inertia forces, etc.) environments. They consist of a complex three-dimensional micro-network of metal structures embedded within a glass-ceramic substrate. Even though LTCCs have been used for more than 20 years, there is insufficient understanding of the mechanical loads during processing. In this regard, different types of failure of the end component during service have been reported, coming from different parts within the part. In this work, the influence of the internal architectures in the fracture response of LTCC components during bending has been investigated. Strength has been determined in 10 × 10 mm2 specimens using the ball-on-three-balls test (biaxial loading) and evaluated using Weibull statistics. Fractography of broken specimens has been performed to determine the mode of fracture of the components and the role of the internal architecture in the crack path. Results show strength dependence as a function of the testing position within the part. The influence of the internal architecture and residual stresses is also discussed.
