Low-cost 3D flip-chip packaging technology for integrated power electronics modules

MetadataShow full item record
Resistance and parasitic inductance resulting from interconnection of semiconductor chips in power modules are reduced to negligible levels by a robust structure which completely avoids use of wire bonds through use of ball bonding and flip-chip manufacturing processes, possibly in combination with chip scale packaging and hourglass shaped stacked solder bumps of increased compliance and controlled height/shape. Turn-off voltage overshoot is reduced to about one-half or less than a comparable wire bond packaged power module. Hourglass shaped solder bumps provide increased compliance and reliability over much increased numbers of thermal cycles over wide temperature excursions.
