|Development of a Low Temperature Curing - Aqueous Base Developable Photoimageable Dielectric for WLP (Wafer Level Packaging) Applications|
|Keywords: Low temperature photoimagable Dielectric, TSV packaging , Fine pich small feature resolution|
|As advanced packaging application space evolves and continues to deviate from the conventional shrinkage pathway predicted by Moore’s law, material suppliers need to continue to work with OEMs, OSATs and Foundries to identify specific opportunities. One such opportunity continues to present itself in developing new materials to support new platforms for next generation products to support 3D chip stacking and TSV applications. The newer material sets can be established to meet more challenging design requirements associated with the demands, presented by the application from both a physical/lithographical processing and design perspective. Next generation packages requires the development of new dielectric materials that can support both the physical demands of 3D chip stacking and TSV package design aspects while maintaining strengths of the existing material platform. While vertical integration necessitates the use of thinned substrates and its associated integration challenges, there is a continuing need to support horizontal shrinkage typical of the Moore’s Law, which pushes the lithography envelope requiring finer pitch and smaller feature resolution capability. This presentation identifies the strategy we have taken and highlights approach taking in the development of low temperature curable photoimageable dielectric materials with enhanced lithographic performance. We will discuss the methodology used to create benzocyclobutene based dielectric material curable at 180°C and show how lithographic performance can be tuned to allow sub 5 micron via using broad band illumination. Finally we will review the impact of low temperature processing on the mechanical, thermal and electrical properties of this novel photoimageable dielectric material.|
