Discover SET’s cutting edge bonding solutions for 3D-IC at Booth 930

3D assembly by Chip-to-Chip (C2C) and Chip-to-Wafer (C2W) stacking enables the development of very high density, multifunction devices and satisfies the demand for higher packaging miniaturization.

There are a number of different ways to design 3D chip packages. For stacked packages, the placement accuracy of chip layers becomes more and more important as the number of layers increases.  The co-planarity of the layers is also an extremely important issue. 3D considerations are also crucial to assembly of MEMS devices, as well as other advanced 3D structures, such as VCSEL arrays and smart pixel arrays. In all cases, 3D packaging requires unparalleled accuracy in the x-, y- and z-directions.

The SET FC300, recently sold to technology leaders (IMEC, Sematech, CEA LETI), provides this accuracy, with post-bond accuracy down to 0.5 µm. SET Device Bonders also deliver high leveling accuracy which can be critical for stacked packages or 3D optoelectronic devices. Leveling accuracy as high as 10 µrad ensures that the 3D structure is correctly assembled and aligned.

By joining the IMEC Industrial Affiliation Program (IIAP) on 3D integration, SET is confirming its leadership position within the industry by providing cutting-edge high accuracy bonding solutions. Thanks to a close cooperation with its customers, SET has raised process development and flexibility of its equipment to the highest level.

To learn more, come & hear Gilbert Lecarpentier, SET leading bonding expert, who will give a presentation on November 4, during the afternoon technical sessions. The subject is High Accuracy Placement Enabling High Density and Fine Pitch in 3D-IC with High Density TSV, with Chip to Wafer (C2W) Bonding Approach.

Visit Dr. Tresky AG at Booth 830

For more than 29 years, DR. TRESKY AG has been well known for its high quality products in the electronic industry.

Consequent developments and the mostly in-house production of our manual and semi-automatic Component Placers allow to react quickly to the trend of the market and to meet the customer requirements.

The great diversity of options has the ability to alter the standard-machines into multi-functional devices, this leads to highly universal items and it still guarantees a user-friendly operation. Different applications can be performed with one machine only:

Die attach, high-accuracy bonding, chip on defined height bonding, thermo- and ultrasonic bonding, stacking of laser bars, eutectic bonding, AuSn and AuAu soldering, 3D packaging and a lot more.

TRESKY’S main attention is still based on further developments for our products what results in a wide range of application-fields, better ergonomics, more repeatability and accuracy as well. Our aim is to produce high quality equipment with high performance but at a reasonable price.

The Beam-Splitter System, Flip-Chip09, is now ready for serial production, as many customers are already using it successfully. Even for its attractive price you will get the Flip-Chip09 with higher optical resolution, auto-focus/ auto-zoom camera and integrated LED illumination. A new additional equipment called Flip-Chip09mpa allows a Multi-Point Alignment in X and Y. In combination with the as well newly developed XY-Table Micro Adjustment and Locking Facility high accuracy of up to 1µm can be reached.

DuPont Microcircuit Materials Introduces GreenTape™ 9K7 LTCC at Booth 615

DuPont Microcircuit Materials (MCM) is introducing DuPont™ GreenTape™ 9K7 Low Temperature Co-fired Ceramic (LTCC) material system at the IMAPS 2009 42nd International Symposium on Microelectronics, being held November 1-5, 2009 in San Jose, CA.  The DuPont™ GreenTape™ 9K7 LTCC material is a lead-free* glass-ceramic dielectric tape, and is available with compatible gold and silver conductive materials as well as co-fired embedded resistor materials.  It is specifically designed for advanced high-frequency, microwave, and millimeter wave electronic circuit applications within the aerospace, automotive, military, consumer electronics, and telecommunications industries.  

LTCC technology has long provided circuit designers with the ability to further miniaturize high density interconnect circuits, but the development of a new proprietary crystallizable glass, with alumina fillers for added mechanical strength, has been a significant technical breakthrough with GreenTape™ 9K7.  With this system, circuit designers and LTCC fabricators now have the ability to design and build high frequency microwave circuits up to 100 Gigahertz and beyond, using electronic materials that are improved over other commercial tape systems, demonstrating superior dielectric properties and improved process capability.  All components of the DuPont™ GreenTape™ 9K7 LTCC system are compatible, to facilitate their introduction into the manufacturing process.  For more information about the new DuPont™ GreenTape™ 9K7, visit
