While not generally necessary for 0.5mm pitch, you might be considering VIP technology for small pitch devices. The VIP strategy places the via straight under the solder pad. However, this will demand another step to seal the via. Usually this is performed with either conductive or nonconductive filling of the vias.
For any 10mil solder pad, TI recommends the utilization of 4mil microvias that are laser beam drilled. After drilling, and with respect to the PCB fabricator choices, the vias are copper plated, then filled up with a polymer comprising a mixture of copper and epoxy for a nonconductive option or copper, metallic, and epoxy for a conductive option. It's important to ensure that the PCB merchant utilizes a via fill up materials with a copper particle size below 1 mil to ensure an entire penetration of the via by the fill up material.
After the vias are packed, healed, and planarized, the rest of the plated openings are prepared. This yields a set copper plated cap on the vias which facilitates element connection. The Via-in-Pad technology provides two main benefits: higher component density and improved routing.
For some PCB fabricators, blind, stacked vias should be limited by just a few layers, with three being the maximum. You need to validate your PCB fabricator’s capacity to reliably build with this course of technology.
All vias must be capped or stuffed to avoid voids and out gassing. The images in Determine 18 show the result of the uncapped via. The voids and harm occurs during reflow. The proper picture is a failurecaused by the extreme package motion during reflow, triggered by out gassing
Again, these decisions are best created by working carefully with the PCB fabricator.

Sequential Lamination and Stacked Vias is primarily used in the design and fabrication of HDI ... Via in-pad micro vias play a key role in shrinking PCB size.
Blind Vias start on an outer layer but end on an inner layer.
Buried Vias exist only between inner layers and do not begin or end on an outer layer.
Stacked Vias used when a blind via required but exceeds an aspect ratio of 1:1. and cannot formed through sequential lamination due to another blind. or buried via beginning on the same layer. as the blind via's termination layer.
Manufacturing PCBs with interconnect blind vias seems harder than it is. For instance, on a 4-layer PCB, a stack up with vias from layer 1 to 2, layer 2 to 3, and layer 3 to 4 is ok. but a stack up with vias from layer 1 to 2, layer 1 to 3, layer 4 to 3, and layer 4 to 2 seems too difficult. In reality there is no difference. The solution is to split the vias and stack them. So split the 1 to 3 drill into 1-2 & 2-3. Same with 4-2 drill, split it into 4-3 & 3-2. This way you stack them up as 1-2 over 2-3, and 4-3 over 3-2 drill.
When stacking vias you must fill the ones in the inner layers. for the laser to reflect back from the smooth surface. Failure to do so will result in dimples at the via hole locations and may result in voids. There are various options available for filling vias. Vias can filled with resin, NCVF (non-conductive via fill) and copper fill. Copper filling is the most common for microvias. as it is the best thermal conductor among all the above options, but it is expensive. Resin fill is the most cheap of them all.

As a further step towards miniaturization of printed circuit boards. via-filling process for laser-drilled blind vias. The process enables an anylayer blind via configuration for flexible PCB layout routing. The short signal way of stacked blind vias. will always guarantee an excellent high frequency performance.
With this new development, in combination with its offering of stacked vias. DYCONEX can now provide full flexibility in layer interconnect. By applying a build-up that consists of stacked vias. PCB designers can achieve significant size reductions. as well as meet a planar surface. that is especially well suited for direct chip attachment. and/or BGA soldering processes.
Furthermore. filled vias give designers exacting control of. how operating heat routed to the PCB's surface. for its efficient dissipation.
standard via sizes
standard via sizes on a particular PCB should all be the same size. Some people recommend 0.025" (0.6mm) diameter via holes. surrounded by a 0.0394" (1.0mm) diameter via copper pad, if at all possible. But, there are commonly used drill sizes that many PCB manufacturers prefer to use. and they may refer to them as standard PCB drill sizes. One of the most common sizes is 0.6 mm, but 0.2 mm and 0.3 mm are also commonly used
