A CPU chip-on-board module for low and midrange computers is described. The module consists of a CPU bare chip, 24 SRAM's packaged in SOJ packages, and some decoupling capacitors. The module substrate is a printed circuit board (PCB) made of bismaleimide-triazine resin. The module (156 mm×58 mm) consists of four signal metal layers and four power/ground metal layers. A square clearance hole (17 mm×17 mm) for the CPU is formed in the central part of the PCB. A thermal spreading metal is glued to the PCB from the rear side, covering the square hole, and the CPU chip is die-bonded onto the metal plate. The thermal resistance can be made smaller than 2°C/W with 0.4 m/s of wind velocity. Numerical analysis of electrical characteristics of the module shows that it can reduce signal delay time from the CPU to cache memories by 10% compared with that of a daughter board type module with the CPU packaged in a pin-grid array package. It is estimated that simultaneously switched noise can be reduced by 60% from that of the daughter board type module
