Fine Pitch Copper Wire Bonding
Bob Chylak, Vice President
Packaging & Process Integration, Kulicke & Soffa

Abstract:
During the last year, fine pitch copper wire bonding has become a mainstream, high volume, fully commercialized packaging technology. Although copper wire had long been recognized for its advantages of substantially lower cost, higher electrical and thermal conductivity and greater stiffness, it took the quadrupling of gold prices over the last five years to drive the semiconductor packaging industry to solve the numerous technical challenges, such as oxidation and pad cracking, associated with copper wire bonding. Now growth of copper wire bonding has been exponential, approximately doubling every 6 months. By the end of 2010, about 20 % of all bonding wire is expected to be copper.

The conversion from gold to copper wire bonding is a truly revolutionary shift that occurred at a breathtaking pace of innovation. Virtually every aspect of wire bonding required reexamination. There was a need to go far beyond solving the basic challenges of Copper Wire Oxidation and sensitive pad cracking due to its increased hardness. An ever deeper understanding of the differences between Cu and Au wire bonding led to improvements in the mechanical and electrical subsystems of the wire bonder, new software to carry out dramatically different wire bonding processes, Cu-specific bonding tools, and improved copper bonding wire. As more advanced bonders and consumables became available and began to be tested in the industry, a need for additional technology improvements both upstream and downstream from the wire bonder also became apparent. Increasingly, the bond pad design is being reinvestigated with an eye towards the needs of copper wire bonding. Molding compound and even substrates are being reformulated to account for the corrosion-sensitivity of copper bonding wire.

Hear why 2010 was only the beginning of the next high-growth phase for the IC industry!
And...why IC Insights has the highest 2011 growth forecast of any major market research firm!

Bill will summarize the latest trends in the IC industry, especially now as it moves through the upturn portion of its cycle. A few of the reasons for IC Insights' optimism for 2011, will be discussed including:

  • Growth in China, India, and Latin America will drive worldwide GDP growth above its long-term average of 3.5%.
  • After every global recession since 1980, the semiconductor industry entered at least a two-year boom period -- 2011 will be the second year after the 2009 global downturn.
  • Portable PCs, smartphones, digital TVs, and automotives are spurring healthy electronic system growth.
  • IC industry capacity increased only 6% in 2010 and capital spending is forecast to show only moderate growth in 2011, minimizing the risk of IC industry overcapacity. After averaging a 4% per year decline over the past 10 years, IC average selling prices are forecast to remain stable over the next couple of years.

Presented by Bill McClean, President of IC Insights
Prior to forming IC Insights, Mr. McClean worked at ICE Corporation for 17 years--the last 10 as Vice President of Market Research. With nearly 30 years of experience tracking the IC industry, Mr. McClean has become a well-known authority on market and technology analysis and forecasting. He specializes in tracking global economic conditions, developing IC market forecasts, analyzing capital spending and fab capacity trends, researching ASIC markets and technologies, and following emerging markets for ICs such as cellular phones.

Mr. McClean serves as contributor and managing editor of IC Insights' studies and other products. In addition, he instructs for IC Insights' seminars and has been a guest speaker at many important annual conferences held worldwide.

Mr. McClean has a Bachelor of Science degree in Marketing and an Associate degree in Aviation from the University of Illinois.

AlSiC Thermal Management Applications - Heat Spreader Lids, IGBT Baseplates, Pin Fin Power Module Coolers for Hybrid Electric Vehicles (HEV) and Hermetic Packages

Presented By: Bo Sullivan, CPS Technologies

Performance requirements of Multicore Communications Processors, High Power/Reliability IGBT Modules, Hybrid Electric Vehicles (HEV) power module systems and Hermetic Packages lead to design focus on thermal management issues such as Coefficient of Thermal Expansion (CTE) compatibility and thermal dissipation. The same attributes that make AlSiC ideal for high reliability power conversion IGBT's, Heat Spreader Lids and Hermetic Packages make the Aluminum Silicon Carbide (AlSiC) metal matrix composite an ideal material for thermal management in HEV applications which need CTE compatibility with the attached electronic components combined with good heat dissipation. AlSiC is also lightweight (1/3 the weight of Copper) while being shock and vibration tolerant. The AlSiC fabrication process allows for functional designs to be cast rather than machined, resulting in a cost effective product. This presentation will outline the AlSiC material properties and fabrication process as well as outlining the power conversion applications that have led to the evolution of AlSiC from an “exotic material” used mainly in “R&D environments” to its use in mainstream automotive, power generation, military and communications applications over the past 10 years.
