LOCTITE ECCOBOND LCM 1000AF is an epoxy amine based system, used in liquid compression molding and with low stress, exhibiting ultra-low-warpage during wafer-level process, and showing excellent chemical resistance and thermal stability properties. It is a non anhydride, SVHC free encapsulant for wafer level encapsulation.
LOCTITE ECCOBOND LCM 1000AF is a black liquid paste with high purity that is typically used on wafer level packaging and high density (less than 100um die to die) Fan Out applications. Instead of encapsulating the chip post dicing, you encapsulate the entire wafer and dice it afterwards.
LOCTITE ECCOBOND LCM 1000AF presents a breakthrough encapsulation material that leverages a unique anhydride-free resin platform to enable thorough protection, improved warpage control and fine gap filling for fan-in and fan-out wafer-level packages (FI WLPs, FO WLPs). LOCTITE ECCOBOND LCM 1000AF, which is REACH-compliant, has shown effective reliability-enhancing performance in internal evaluations of several wafer-level packaging configurations including FI WLPs, embedded wafer-level ball grid arrays (eWLBs), FO WLPs, and chip-on-wafer (CoW) encapsulation.
LOCTITE ECCOBOND LCM 1000AF is a solvent-free encapsulant that integrates exceptionally fine particle fillers (average 3 µm, upper cut 10 µm), enabling high-yield, ultra-low warpage, excellent flow properties for void-free fine-dimension filling, and fast in-mold cure times for improved UPH. In testing, LOCTITE ECCOBOND LCM 1000AF exhibited the following performance benefits:
As chip integration and new packaging technologies gain steam to address the cost, form factor and functional realities of accelerated electronics miniaturization, FO WLP and FI WLP approaches are increasingly being adopted, particularly for applications such as data processors, mobile devices, consumer electronics, and radio-frequency communication chipsets. However, with thinner dies – some as thin as 50 µm or less –conventional anhydride-based molding materials may not meet today’s challenging requirements.
Traditional liquid compression molding materials are built on anhydride resin systems with larger filler sizes, which can limit warpage control effectiveness in FO WLP processes and the ability to penetrate narrow gaps for trench filling with FI WLP techniques. The powder-type fillers often used in older-generation standard wafer encapsulation systems have large particle sizes that range from 25 µm to an upper cut of 50 µm while some of the trenches between dies in FI WLP processes are as thin as 40 µm wide. Standard encapsulants are challenged to thoroughly fill high-density structures and, during fan-out wafer-level processing, have also shown warpage of greater than 2.0 mm after molding, both factors that can impact long-term reliability and wafer handling. Henkel’s anhydride-free epoxy liquid compression molding material resolves these issues.
The ultra-low warpage, improved handling, high throughput processing, thorough five- or six-side protection and void-free performance of our new LCM serve to dramatically enhance reliability and long-term device durability. At the same time, LOCTITE ECCOBOND 1000AF delivers these attributes in an anhydride-free formulation that complies with strict REACH standards and in keeping with Henkel’s commitment to sustainability. Wafer-level packaging just took a huge leap forward.
To improve the adhesion of LCM 1000AF to the back side of the die, you may consider a rougher surface to increase the bonding surface area. This may be achieved by rougher back grinding process.
If this is not an option then you can consider the following:
Last but not least, curing the parts longer for 10 minutes at 120C (instead of 5 minutes on TDS) can aid in reducing the stress. This way a higher modulus, more than 10 MPa, is achieved in the mold.
