Wafer backside coating

Wafer backside coating for wirebond laminate and leadframe packaging

AVAILABLE DIRECTLY AT CAPLINQ.COM

Wafer Backside Coatings

Wafer backside coating materials allow for screen or stencil printing of the paste across the entire wafer in a single stroke, increasing throughput by eliminating the need to individually dispense dots of adhesive.

Wafer backside coating provides consistent bond lines and small, controlled fillets which are particularly effective for attaching small die in miniaturized packages and challenging structures like chip on lead where the die pad is smaller than the die. It enables process speed, thickness control and material uniformity and it is critical for die attach applications where fillet control is critical.

Wafer Backside Coating is a unique process that facilitates automated application of die attach adhesive at the wafer-level followed by B-staging to form a die attach film. Adaptable to spray coating technique, Henkel’s Wafer Backside Coatings enable process speed, thickness control and material uniformity. Following thermal or UV B-staging and wafer dicing, die attach is achieved via heat and pressure to produce a consistent bond line and small, controlled fillets. Wafer Backside Coating adhesives are ideal for die attach applications where fillet control is critical.

Wafer Backside Coating materials allow for screen or stencil printing of the paste across the entire wafer in a single stroke, increasing throughput by eliminating the need to individually dispense dots of adhesive. After B-staging to create a film, Wafer Backside Coating provides consistent bond lines and small, controlled fillets, which are particularly effective for attaching small die in miniaturized packages and challenging structures like chip-on-lead, where the die pad is smaller than the die.
