LOCTITE® ABLESTIK ATB 120U Non conductive adhesive film has a thickness of 20um but is also available in 10, 30 and 40um. It can be used to absorb CTE mismatch between substrates but the extend to which it can be effective will depend on the bond area. The bigger the parts, the bigger the mismatch and stress. Even flexible adhesives won’t behave that flexible when thin bond lines need to absorb stress in larger bond areas. For example the glass wind shield in cars is bonded with flexible PUR adhesive with ±2-3mm bond line thickness to absorb movements. So from a Die attach film perspective, a 20um bond line will give half the stress compared to 10um!

How do you use Die attach films?
These dicing die attach adhesive films are supplied on a wafer dicing tape, being laminated on a wafer which can be diced and then a typically dry to touch “B-staged” adhesive of 10-40um will be left of the die back (of part) before final bonding step. Todays’ thinnest version is ATB 110U with 10um adhesive layer after removing the release liner and dicing tape. Note that surface roughness and warpage needs to be compensated to prevent voids during and after cure, so 20um is more commonly used.
What Dk/Df data do we have for these materials?We do not have dk/df for these specific thicknesses but please see data at much lower frequencies on hand attached for referenceLooking at the down trend at higher frequencies and other epoxy based materials tested, we estimate Dk ~3 for these film materials at 28 GHz ...
