|Highly Flexible Die Attach Adhesives for MEMS Microphone Packages|
|Keywords: Adhesives, MEMS, Die Attach|
|Die attach materials for MEMS microphone packages must be highly flexible as temperature changes during the assembly process and application may lead to thermo-mechanical stress as a consequence of dissimilar thermal coefficients of expansion of substrate, chip and adhesive. Thermo-mechanical stress results in a distortion of the signal characteristics of the extremely stress-sensitive MEMS microphone packages. Within the scope of this paper, highly flexible heat-curing adhesives with a Young's modulus down to 5 MPa at room temperature (DMTA) were developed. DMTA measurements showed that temperature storage at 120 °C did not cause the adhesive to embrittle, which would have a negative effect on the MEMS package's reliability. After storage at 120 °C for 1,000 h, no increase of the Young's modulus was observed. The adhesives exhibit extremely low curing temperature of 80 °C which reduces stress development during the assembly process. In addition, the adhesives have very process-friendly properties. Processing times of more than one week can be achieved. The option of dual curing enable preliminary light fixation of the chip within just seconds.|
