After protecting the surface with the tape and grinding the back surface, the back surface of the wafer is attached to the ring frame via the adhesive sheet, and then the protective tape on the surface is peeled off. It is cut and separated (diced) into chips, and in this state, it is transferred to the following processes such as cleaning, drying, and die bonding.

The material 7 is peeled off together with the cutting residue. The peeled release sheet 4 </ b> A is guided by the fixed roller 112 and taken up by the take-up roller 114.
[0048]
At the time of peeling, since the entire surface W2 of the wafer W is supported upward by the compressed air P, the wafer W is cracked, broken, or damaged when the peeling sheet 4A of the die bonding sheet 2 is peeled off. There is nothing to do.
After the peeling operation is completed, the mount table 116 is lowered in the direction of arrow F in FIG. 10, the suction of the suction unit 122 is released, and the wafer W is suction-fixed on the movable arm 22 and the wafer supply unit 10 is accommodated in a shelf of the wafer carrier 12, or a buffer sheet for protecting the circuit surface is laid between the wafers in a wafer storage box (not shown) while being stacked and stored in a wafer storage box for storing the wafer W. It may be.
[0049]
The above cycle is repeated.
In addition, the wafer W in which the heat-sensitive adhesive base material 7 of the die bonding sheet 2 is attached to the back surface W3 of the wafer W in this way is transferred to each process such as a dicing process, cleaning, drying, and die bonding.
[0050]
【The invention's effect】
According to the present invention, from the wafer cassette containing a plurality of wafers, the wafer is taken out, the alignment for performing wafer positioning, the back surface of the wafer of the die bonding sheet comprising the release sheet and the substrate having the heat-sensitive adhesive layer It is possible to continuously and automatically carry out a series of steps of sticking to the wafer, peeling the release sheet of the die bonding sheet, and storing the wafer in the wafer cassette.
[0051]
Moreover, since the die bonding sheet is a sheet provided with a release sheet and a base material having a heat-sensitive adhesive layer, it functions as a protective tape during dicing, and after dicing, a semiconductor chip is placed on the lead frame. When die bonding is performed, it also functions as an adhesive for die bonding.
Therefore, unlike the conventional case, there is no need to apply an adhesive to the lead frame at the time of die bonding, and at the time of die bonding, the semiconductor chip is picked up by the suction collet simply by heating the die bonding sheet. In addition, the substrate having the heat-sensitive adhesive layer of the die bonding sheet functions as an adhesive to the lead frame and can be directly thermocompression bonded.
[0052]
Furthermore, since the base material having the heat-sensitive adhesive layer of the die bonding sheet is cut (pre-cut) on the outer shape of the wafer before the base material having the heat-sensitive adhesive layer of the die bonding sheet is attached to the back surface of the wafer, When cutting the die bonding sheet with a cutter like this, there is no risk that the outer periphery of the wafer will be damaged or the wafer will break, and the die bonding sheet is cut in advance in a separate process as in the past. It is an extremely excellent invention that has a number of unique and remarkable effects.
