HDI – High Density Interconnect PCBs
These factories, combined with our worldwide technical organization, bring a comprehensive knowledge of the requirements and manufacturing methods required for successful HDI products.
What defines a HDI board?
IPC-2226 defines HDI as a printed circuit board with a higher wiring density per unit area than conventional printed circuit boards (PCB). There are different types of HDI features, type I, type II and type III as defined in IPC-2226. In our FAQ you can learn more about the different types.
Please contact your local NCAB Group company if you need further information or assistance, we are happy to help you.
HDI PCB – Technical specification

What is a HDI PCB?
IPC-2226 defines HDI as a printed circuit board with a higher wiring density per unit area than conventional printed circuit boards (PCB). They have finer lines and spaces ≤ 100 µm / 0.10mm, smaller vias (<150 µm) and capture pads <400 µm / 0.40mm, and higher connection pad density (>20 pads/cm2) than employed in conventional PCB technology.
