PDC1:
IC PACKAGING TRENDS AND ASSEMBLY OPTIONS - TECHNICAL ISSUES AND CONCERNS
9 AM - 5 PM

BILL GREIG, GREIG ASSOCIATES

DESCRIPTION: 
This course addresses the impact of both the Integrated Circuit, and End Product requirements, in particular, "smaller, better, cheaper", on packaging, assembly, and substrate interconnects. It focuses on packaging trends, namely, the Ball Grid Array, (BGA) and the Chip Scale Package, (CSP), and alternative formats, multichip modules, (MCM), chip on board, (COB) and 3-D initiatives at both the chip and package levels. Assembly options available for attachment of the IC in each case will be discussed with major emphasis on Flip Chip. The course also covers High Density Interconnect substrates (HDIs). The various substrate technologies (Thick Film, Co-fired Ceramic, and Thin Film) that are employed in the manufacture of Single Chip and Multichip Packages will be reviewed. And finally, the latest developments in PWBs, with high density, fine lines, and micro vias employing sequential processing (Build Up Technology - BUT) will be reviewed. Through out the course the technical issues will be emphasized and reliability concerns addressed where appropriate.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND?
The course provides a comprehensive overview of microelectronic packaging and assembly and is intended for individuals in any way involved with electronics manufacturing. Discussing current and future trends, it is directed towards both the experienced or inexperienced engineer and technician and management personnel with the "need to know". It should also be of particular interest to those in support activities such as procurement, quality assurance, marketing, sales, and program office will greatly benefit from this course.

SPECIAL COURSE MATERIAL:
All attendees will receive a complimentary copy of the book, "Hybrid Microcircuit Technology Handbook", J. Licari, L. Enlow, 2nd Edition, Noyes Publications, 1998.

INSTRUCTOR BIO:
Bill Greig is currently an independent consultant specializing in microelectronic packaging and assembly. His previous work experiences include RCA Semiconductor, General Electric Co., Lockheed Electronics, and NASA. His areas of expertise covers semiconductor wafer processing, hybrid circuit manufacture, printed wiring board fabrication and assembly technologies such as chip & wire and flip chip. He has presented numerous courses at national symposia and has participated in CEE programs at U. of Wisconsin, Lehigh University and Rutgers University.

Wednesday, March 13

The Technical Committee of ICAPS is pleased to present four in-depth technical workshops to provide detailed information on topics of immediate interest to the Advanced Packaging and Systems community. These workshops are included as part of the Conference registration, so please be sure to select the workshop you would like to attend on the registration form. The four workshop topics selected are:

1. Fundamentals of Fabrication and Packaging of MEMS and Related Micro Systems
2. Flexible Circuit Applications, Materials and Manufacturing Processes
3. Advanced Organic Substrate Package Design & Manufacturing for RF Applications
4. Flip Chip Technology

Packaging is the major cost driver in MEMS technology today. For the future growth of this market, packaging must be addressed. The first workshop will discuss these challenges and opportunities. In the Plenary Sessions, 3-D system packaging using thinned silicon and foldable flex technology will be discussed. The goal of the second workshop is to provide greater insight into the design and manufacture of flex circuitry. Wireless systems and products are one of the fastest growing segments in the industry. The third workshop focuses on the design and manufacture of packages to meet the demands of this market. Utilization of flip chip technology for flip chip-in-package is growing dramatically and is the topic of the fourth workshop. This workshop will address issues of bumping, design, assembly and reliability. 

Additional information about each workshop is given below.

WORKSHOP 1:
FUNDAMENTALS OF FABRICATION AND PACKAGING OF MEMS AND RELATED MICRO SYSTEMS
9 AM - NOON

Instructor: Ajay P. Malshe, University of Arkansas

Workshop Description:
This introductory course will cover packaging and integration of micro-electro mechanical systems (MEMS). Unlike integrated circuit (IC) packaging, MEMS packaging is highly application specific. MEMS and related micro systems are designed, fabricated and packaged for various applications, for example accelerometers, gyros, RF switches, optical switches, micro fluidic drug delivery systems, etc. Moreover, growing trend demands multifunctional systems where integration of these diverse signals results into true "mixed signal systems". Hence, growing number of products need application specific design, materials, fabrication and assembly processes for building reliable MEMS systems.


WORKSHOP 2:
AN OVERVIEW OF FLEXIBLE CIRCUIT APPLICATIONS, MATERIALS AND MANUFACTURING PROCESSES
9 AM - NOON

Instructor: Joe Fjelstad, JC Fjelstad and Associates

Workshop Description:
Flexible circuits are arguably the world's most versatile electronic interconnection technology. Today products enabled by flex circuit technology abound as they are used in every imaginable way. This workshop will examine this rapidly expanding and evolving technology, pausing first to review some of the many applications for flex and then moving on to examine the different materials employed and processing methods used in their manufacture. Included in the discussions will be a brief review of some of the more important design considerations that should be addressed to assure a successful flex circuit enabled product.


WORKSHOP 3:
ADVANCED ORGANIC SUBSTRATE PACKAGE DESIGN & MANUFACTURING FOR RF APPLICATIONS
9 AM - NOON

Instructor: Hassan Hashemi, Conexant Systems, Inc.

Workshop Description:
The objectives of this course are to review design and manufacturing practices and tradeoffs affecting current and next generation Wireless Packaging using laminate substrate technologies in single or multiple die packaging format. The course material is based upon the instructor's experience on current practices used for Wireless & GHz IC packaging for wireless (e.g. Power Amplifier modules) and internet infrastructure applications. The course is designed for engineers or engineering managers who want to understand more about laminate single or multi chip modules, and the unique requirements for assuring that packages can be manufactured in a high volume commercial application and meet stringent electrical and thermal performance requirements.


WORKSHOP 4:
FLIP CHIP TECHNOLOGY
9 AM - NOON

Instructor: R. Wayne Johnson, Auburn University

Workshop Description:
This workshop provides insight into the design and assembly of electronics using flip chip devices. The workshop will cover the practical issues of implementing flip chip technology from wafer bumping to reliability characterization. This workshop will begin with an examination of bumping options and corresponding design rules. Redistribution will also be discussed. Substrate requirements for flip chip will then be presented including a discussion of high density interconnect options and substrate design. Assembly of flip chip devices adds materials and processes to the standard assembly process and the integration of these into the process flow is examined. Materials and processes to be discussed include fluxes, underfills (capillary flow, fluxing no-flow, and wafer applied), substrate dehydration, flux and underfill application, underfill curing, inspection and underfill characterization techniques. The workshop will conclude with a discussion of flip chip assembly reliability testing.
