"Thermal Modeling of a Refractory Metal Substrate with Improved Thermal Conductivity"
ABSTRACT: With the increasing performance and the miniaturization of electronic devices there is a growing need for advanced thermal management materials and components. Efficient heat dissipation is required to maintain device reliability, durability and performance consistency. This presentation reviews the thermal modeling and experimental data of a patent-pending, refractory metal (Mo) based, passive cooling element, containing Cu-filled through holes. An additional and unique feature of the product described is the ability to design the size, location, density and pattern of the through-holes. This allows the advantage of a targeted channeling of heat away from hot spots, i.e., localized areas with significantly higher heat loads.
Jonathan Margalit, Ph.D. in Material Science from the Technical University of Aachen, Germany (thermal expansion of Al-silicate based ceramics). National Service Manager for a semiconductor x-ray analysis tool manufacturer. With H.C. Starck since 2000 in various positions (Marketing, Product Management), currently responsible for new business development for thermal management related applications, including HB-LEDs, hybrid vehicle power converters, and power semiconductors.

Session 1: Materials
Session 2: Applications
Session 3: Thermal modelling and reliability
Session 4: Advanced cooling solutions
Session 5: Test and Measurement Methods
The international dimension of the event is attested by half of the presentations from five different countries, including Belgium (4), Germany (2), United States (2), Spain (1) and Sweden (1). The language will be English.
The workshop site will be: “Hotel Mercure Oceanide” on Vieux Port Sud (Old harbour). It is organized on a global fees basis for registration, hotel (2 nights) and meals (2 dinners, 2 lunches). It will start on Tuesday January 30 by a welcome dinner. On Wednesday evening the participants are invited to the “Corderie Royale”, a historic manufacturer of naval ropes; after the visit the dinner will be served on site.
After January 12, the fees increased to:
€ 750 for members and € 850 for non members.
Speakers and chairs benefit of a special rate of € 480.
The registration deadline will be January 26.

Packaging Requirements to meet Future Directions and Needs
Mr. Sunil Patel, Packaging Technologist
Recent years have seen growing demands of data storage in digital electronic industry and this trend will continue further during the first decade of 21st century. Hard disk drives will remain the primary choice of storage devices in all segments of PC market and in many non-PC emerging markets. Form factor and capacity are the distinguishing critical features of storage devices for emerging mobile market segment. Small form factor requirements of hard disk drive pose many challenges to semiconductor devices at both component level as well as system/board level. Microelectronic packaging technology has evolved since past few decades and continues to make advanced development to meet current and future requirements. This talk will discuss the trends and role of packaging in hard disk drive applications. Various packaging options for key electronic components are discussed. Concept of system level solution is introduced to meet next generation consumer application requirements.
Mr. Sunil Patel is a Packaging Technologist at Seagate Technology where he is responsible to coordinate cross-functional development of ASIC packaging and addressing key issues for various phases of manufacturing and productization of disc drives. Prior to joining Seagate, Mr. Patel played a key role in defining ASIC package and board level assembly solutions at a small start-up company, providing solutions for storage area network demands. He has also worked at LSI Logic where he built a highly motivated team to develop and qualify industry’s first laminate flip-chip package. Mr.Patel and his team played a key role in establishing industry infrastructure by establishing a robust flip-chip assembly process at major semiconductor package and assembly sub-contractor facilities.
Mr. Patel has worked at Digital Equipment & Eastman Kodak, working on thin film deposition process as well as packaging development and also contributed to industry consortiums like MCC and Sematech.

Consumer electronic devices have to be small, lightweight and portable for convenience of the user. At the same time, new features and functions are being added to designs that put tremendous pressure on the use of the substrate area. Flip chip and micro-BGA devices are being used as on flex circuits and substrates for these markets. Underfilling these devices presents some fundamental problems for needle dispensing that Jet dispensing can eliminate. This presentation will review the merits of jetting verses needle dispensing. It will be shown how with jetting it has been possible to save board space while improving throughput in real life applications.
Steve will also take a few minutes to discuss recent developments in IMAPS and share with you the IMAPS executive council vision for the future. He will also be looking for feedback on how to improve IMAPS.
