STATS ChipPAC Introduces Enhanced Flip Chip Packaging with fcCuBE™ Technology at Device Packaging Booth # 30

STATS ChipPAC has introduced fcCuBE™ technology, an advanced flip chip packaging technology that features copper (Cu) column bumps, Bond-on-Lead (BOL) interconnection and Enhanced assembly processes.  fcCuBE technology delivers high input/output (I/O) density, high performance and superior reliability in advanced silicon nodes. 

As semiconductor devices are scaled to advanced wafer technology nodes of 45/40nm and below, innovations in package structure, design and assembly process are key to achieving high performance, cost-effective product solutions. fcCuBE technology addresses a complex set of packaging challenges and delivers important benefits including:  

  • Ultra high I/O escape routing density
  • Scalability to very fine bump pitches of 80 micron and below with finer effective
  • Significant reduction of stress on Ultra low-k (ELK/ULK) structures that has been proven down to 45/40 nanometer (nm) and 28nm silicon structures
  • Broad fab node compatibility
  • Higher resistance to electromigration
  • Lead-free alternative to conventional lead-free bumps and solder-based bumps
  •  A 20-40% lower cost over standard flip chip packages for most designs

In terms of the design flexibility of fcCuBE, STATS ChipPAC is deploying the core fcCuBE technology beyond traditional single-die flip chip packaging into more complex stacked/3D packages including Package-on-Package (PoP), Package-in-Package (PiP), flip chip/wire bond hybrid packages and next-generation Through Silicon Via (TSV) configurations.

To find out more about fcCuBE, visit STATS ChipPAC’s booth #30 at the IMAPS Device Packaging Conference on March 8-9th, 2011 in Scottsdale/Fountain Hills, Arizona or visit the Company’s website at
