Description

This invention relates to the IC card.

  One of the structures of an IC card is a structure in which a COB (Chip On Board) type semiconductor integrated circuit device package (hereinafter abbreviated as COB type package) is accommodated in a cavity provided in a base card in a so-called cavity down state. is there. A typical example of this structure is shown in FIGS. 39A and 39B.

  FIG. 39A is a sectional view showing an IC card according to a typical example, and FIG. 39B is an exploded sectional view thereof.

  As shown in FIGS. 39A and 39B, a COB type package 101 is obtained by mounting a semiconductor integrated circuit chip 103 on a printed board 102 in a bare state and overcoating the chip 103 with a resin 104. For this reason, in the COB type package 101, the fringe 105 exists between the outer peripheral portion of the printed circuit board 102 and the resin 104. FIG. 40 shows the appearance of the COB type package 101.

  The base card 111 is provided with a cavity 112 for accommodating the COB type package 101. A margin part 113 is provided around the cavity 112, and the fringe 105 of the COB type package 101 is bonded to the margin part 113. As a result, the portion of the COB package 101, particularly the resin 104, is accommodated in the cavity 112 in a so-called cavity down state.

  However, the IC card shown in FIGS. 39A and 39B has the following circumstances.

  The size of the cavity 112 is limited by the margin 113, for example. For this reason, for example, when trying to reduce the size of an IC card, it is difficult to mount a large chip 103 on the IC card. The COB package 101 has a structure in which the chip 103 is overcoated with a resin 104. For this reason, for example, when molding is used, it is necessary to set a clearance angle on the side surface of the resin 104 in order to improve detachability from the mold. Alternatively, when potting is used, it is necessary to consider the outer circumference of the resin 104. From these viewpoints, it is difficult to mount the large chip 103.

  The difficulty in mounting the large chip 103 causes a negative effect that it is difficult to improve the performance per unit area of an IC card that is being reduced in size, for example. For example, in memory card applications, it is difficult to increase the storage capacity per unit area of a memory card.

  To solve this problem, device technology such as large-scale integration of the chip 103 may be promoted. However, enormous development costs are required for promotion of device technology. Since this development cost is reflected in the manufacturing cost of the IC card, it is difficult to manufacture the IC card at a low cost.

Further, for example, when importance is attached to the performance of an IC card, there may be a case where the large chip 103 must be accommodated in the cavity 112. For this reason, an IC card may be enlarged. Increasing the size of the IC card also increases the manufacturing cost of the IC card.

This invention provides an IC card which can be manufactured at low cost.

IC card according to the first aspect of the present invention, a wiring board, a semiconductor integrated circuit chip provided on said wiring substrate, and a semiconductor integrated circuit device package having an insulating resins covering the semiconductor integrated circuit chip the provided on one surface of a semiconductor integrated circuit device package, and a plurality of card terminal to which the is a semiconductor integrated circuit chip electrically connected to for come in contact with respect to the terminal of the electronic device, a semiconductor integrated circuit device package A base card having a recess to be pasted, and a base card to which a bottom of the recess and another surface opposite to the one surface of the semiconductor integrated circuit device package are pasted, the semiconductor integrated circuit device package comprising : wherein after the semiconductor integrated circuit chip covered with the insulating resin, a rectangular parallelepiped package formed by cutting, the semiconductor integrated circuit device Pas The insulating resin is exposed on the other surface of the cage, the wiring substrate and the insulating resin are exposed on the four surfaces except the one surface and the other surface of the semiconductor integrated circuit device package, The shape of the card terminal is straight, and the plurality of straight card terminals are arranged on the entire surface of the one surface of the semiconductor integrated circuit device package, and the surface of the base card on the card terminal side is connected to the electronic device. There is a step corresponding to the provided guide, and the width of the step is widened in the direction of insertion into the electronic device .

According to the present invention, it is possible to provide an IC card which can be manufactured at low cost.

  Hereinafter, an embodiment of the present invention will be described with reference to the drawings. In the description, common parts are denoted by common reference symbols throughout the drawings.

  1A is a plan view showing an IC card according to an embodiment of the present invention, FIG. 1B is a cross-sectional view taken along line 1B-1B in FIG. 1A, and FIG. 1C is a cross-sectional view taken along line 1C-1C in FIG. is there.

  2A is a plan view showing an example of a base card used in an IC card according to an embodiment of the present invention, FIG. 2B is a sectional view taken along line 2B-2B in FIG. 2A, and FIG. 2C is 2C- in FIG. 2A. It is sectional drawing which follows the 2C line.

  As shown in FIGS. 1A to 1C and FIGS. 2A to 2C, the base card 11 is provided with a recess 13. The semiconductor integrated circuit device package 1 is attached to the bottom of the recess 13. An example of this attachment is, for example, adhesion with the adhesive 2 or an adhesive tape. The package 1 is attached to the recess 13 in a state where it is difficult to attach and detach, for example. For example, to prevent accidental peeling or unnecessary removal in the market. However, in consideration of replacement or attachment of the semiconductor integrated circuit device package 1 in the market, for example, the semiconductor integrated circuit device package 1 can be attached to the recess 13 in a detachable manner, for example.

  The recess 13 of the base card 11 closely resembles the typical IC card cavity 112 shown in FIGS. 39A and 39B. However, one of the differences between the concave portion 13 and the typical IC card cavity 112 is that there is no margin 113 around the concave portion 13. This is because the idea or concept of a typical IC card is to embed or accommodate a package or chip in an IC card, whereas the idea or concept of an IC card according to one embodiment It comes from sticking on the card. For example, the bottom of the recess 13 is a margin.

  An example of the position where the concave portion 13 of the base card 11 is provided is a position unevenly distributed from the center 14 of the base card 11 as shown in FIG. Specifically, as shown in FIG. 2, the center 15 of the recess 13 is provided so as to be shifted from the center 14 of the base card 11. Thereby, the adhesion center is shifted from the center 14 of the base card 11. One of the advantages that the bonding center deviates from the center of the base card 11 is that the package is difficult to peel off. For example, when an IC card, for example, the base card 11 is bent due to an unexpected external force or the like, it is difficult to peel off as compared with a case where the adhesion center coincides with the center of the base card 11.

  4A and 4B are plan views showing an example of a semiconductor integrated circuit device package used in the IC card according to the embodiment of the present invention, and FIG. 4C is a sectional view taken along line 4C-4C in FIGS. 4A and 4B. 4D is a cross-sectional view taken along line 4D-4D in FIGS. 4A and 4B.

  As shown in FIGS. 4A to 4D, an example of the semiconductor integrated circuit device package 1 is a package having a structure conforming to, for example, a COB (Chip On Board) type package, but the semiconductor integrated circuit device package 1 according to this example. In FIG. 39A, FIG. 39B, and FIG. 40, there is no fringe like the typical COB type package 101 shown in FIG. In other words, it is a fringe-less package. An example of a fringe-less type package is a rectangular parallelepiped package shown in FIGS. 4A to 4D. An example of manufacturing a rectangular parallelepiped package will be described below.

  5A and 5B are perspective views illustrating an example of a wiring board used for manufacturing a semiconductor integrated circuit device package according to an example, and FIGS. 6A to 6D are perspective views illustrating a method for manufacturing a semiconductor integrated circuit device package according to an example. FIG.

  First, a wiring board 3 as shown in FIGS. 5A and 5B is prepared. An example of the wiring board 3 is a printed board. A card terminal 4 is provided on one surface of the wiring board 3 according to this example. The card terminal 4 in this specification is, for example, a flat terminal that can be repeatedly recontacted with a terminal of an electronic device. An example of the electronic device is an electronic device using, for example, an IC card as a medium. On the other surface opposite to the one surface of the wiring substrate 3, a die bond portion 5 to which a semiconductor integrated circuit chip is die-bonded and a wiring 6 to be electrically connected to a pad of the semiconductor integrated circuit device chip are provided. The wiring 6 is connected to the card terminal 4 via a connecting portion 7 (see FIG. 4B) provided on the wiring board 3. The wiring board 3 may be a printed wiring board, a single-layer wiring tape board having a hole in a part of an insulating layer, or a multilayer wiring board having a via hole.

  Next, as shown in FIG. 6A, a plurality of semiconductor integrated circuit chips 8 are die-bonded to the wiring board 3. Further, the pads of the plurality of chips 8 are electrically connected to the wiring 6. An example of the electrical connection between the pad of the chip 8 and the wiring 6 is wire bonding using the bonding wire 9, but is not limited to wire bonding.

  Next, as shown in FIG. 6B, the plurality of chips 8 are covered with an insulating resin 10. An example of the insulating resin 10 is an insulating plastic.

  Next, as shown in FIG. 6C, the wiring board 3 and the resin 10 are diced using, for example, a dicer 21 to obtain the rectangular parallelepiped package 1 shown in FIG. 6D.

  On one surface of the rectangular parallelepiped package 1, card terminals 4 are provided as shown in FIG. 4B. Further, for example, only the resin 10 exists on the other surface opposite to the one surface, as shown in FIG. 4A. The other surface where only this resin 10 exists becomes a surface to be attached to the recess 13.

  According to the IC card according to such an embodiment, the following effects can be obtained as compared with a typical IC card.

  7A and 7B are cross-sectional views showing typical effects of the IC card according to the embodiment of the present invention.

  FIG. 7A shows an example in which the size of the concave portion 13 of the IC card according to one embodiment is the same as the size of the margin portion 113 of a typical IC card.

  As shown in FIG. 7A, in a typical IC card, the size of the cavity 112 is limited by the margin 113. On the other hand, in the IC card according to the embodiment, the concave portion 13 is not limited by the marginal portion or the like. For this reason, the large-sized semiconductor integrated circuit device package 1 can be mounted on the IC card. If the large-sized semiconductor integrated circuit device package 1 can be mounted, the semiconductor integrated circuit chip 8 can be increased in size, and the advantage that the performance per unit area of the IC card can be easily improved can be obtained. For example, in memory card applications, it is easy to increase the storage capacity per unit area of a memory card.

  Further, since the large chip 8 can be mounted, for example, it is not necessary to unnecessarily request a severe downsizing for semiconductor elements and circuits integrated on the chip 3. This leads to a reduction in the development cost of the chip 8, for example. If the development cost of the chip 8 can be suppressed, it is advantageous for reducing the cost of the IC card itself.

  FIG. 7B shows an example in which the size of the semiconductor integrated circuit chip 8 of the IC card according to the embodiment is the same as the size of the semiconductor integrated circuit chip 103 of a typical IC card.

  In the IC card according to the embodiment, there is no need to provide a margin portion or the like around the recess 13. For this reason, for example, it is not necessary to provide the margin part 113, and the recessed part 13 can be made small, and it becomes possible to miniaturize the base card 11 if compared with an IC card, one embodiment. The downsizing of the IC card is also advantageous for reducing the cost of the IC card.

  Further, as shown in FIGS. 39A and 39B, a typical IC card has a structure in which the fringe 105 of the COB type package 101 is bonded to the margin 113. That is, the fringe 105 is necessary for the package 101. On the other hand, in the IC card according to the embodiment, the resin 10 of the semiconductor integrated circuit package 1 is attached to the bottom of the recess 13. Therefore, a fringe-less type package can be used for the package 1. In the fringe-less type package, a larger chip 3 can be mounted when the package size is the same as the package with fringe. Further, when the size of the chip 3 is the same, the package size can be reduced. Therefore, if a fringe-less package is attached to the recess 13 as in the IC card according to one embodiment, for example, the IC card can be reduced in size without reducing performance, or the IC card can be increased in size. The advantage that it can suppress can be acquired.

  A rectangular parallelepiped package can be given as an example of a fringe-less package. The rectangular parallelepiped package can be obtained by dicing the whole package as shown in FIGS. 6A to 6D, for example. This rectangular parallelepiped package is advantageous in that it can accommodate a larger chip 3 because it is not necessary to consider the amount of resin and to set a clearance angle on the side surface of the resin.

  Next, some ideas applied to the IC card according to the embodiment of the present invention will be described.

[First structure]
FIG. 8A is a cross-sectional view showing an example of the first structure of the IC card according to one embodiment of the present invention, and FIG. 8B is a cross-sectional view showing a typical effect of the first structure.

  As shown in FIG. 8A, ribs 23 are provided on the card terminal surface of the base card 11. The rib 23 is, for example, a portion protruding from the card terminal surface by a height t1. The rib 23 is provided, for example, at an end portion of the base card 11, for example, an end portion 25 facing the device insertion surface.

  By providing the ribs 23 on the card terminal surface in this manner, for example, as shown in FIG. 8B, when the IC card is placed on the plane 24 with the card terminal surface down, the card terminal 4 is placed on the plane 24. I can't touch it. For this reason, when the card terminal 4 encounters a scene where the card terminal 4 rubs against other objects, for example, when the IC card is placed on the flat surface 24 and slid, the card terminal 4 is hardly damaged. In particular, the surface of the card terminal 4 may be subjected to surface treatment for the purpose of preventing corrosion, for example, but this surface treatment is not damaged. This is advantageous in improving the reliability of the IC card, for example, the wear resistance.

  In order to prevent corrosion of the card terminal 4, it is common to plate the surface of the card terminal 4 with a metal having excellent corrosion resistance as a surface treatment. In many cases, the metal having excellent corrosion resistance is a noble metal or a rare metal, and gold and palladium are typical examples. However, these metals are subject to wear. For this reason, in order to improve the wear resistance of the card, for example, it is required to increase the thickness of the plating to some extent. Increasing the thickness of the plating increases the material cost because a large amount of metal is used.

  In this regard, in the case of an IC card having the rib 23 on the card terminal surface, the surface treatment of the card terminal 4, that is, the possibility of the plating rubbing against other objects is reduced, so there is no need to increase the plating thickness. . Therefore, the manufacturing cost can be reduced while the card terminal 4 has sufficient corrosion resistance.

  Further, if the rib 23 is provided at the end of the base card 11, for example, the end 25 opposite to the device insertion surface, the finger is applied to the rib 23 when the IC card is picked up and inserted by the finger. For this reason, the usability of the IC card is improved, such as easy insertion and removal.

[Second structure]
In the conventional IC card, the height difference of the card terminal with respect to the card terminal surface is specified to be 0.1 mm or less (for example, JISX6303). This means that manufacturing tolerances such as waviness and assembling accuracy of the card terminal are manufactured with a tolerance of ± 0.1 mm or less with the aim of the card terminal having a height difference of 0 with respect to the card terminal surface. In such an IC card, when the card terminal surface is placed on a flat surface, the card terminal touches the flat surface.

  FIG. 9A is a cross-sectional view showing an example of the second structure of the IC card according to one embodiment of the present invention, and FIG. 9B is a cross-sectional view showing a typical effect of the second structure.

  As shown in FIG. 9A, the position of the surface of the card terminal 4 is, for example, a depth d1 lower than the position of the card terminal surface of the base card 11. As a result, as shown in FIG. 9B, when the base card 11 is placed on the plane 24 with the card terminal face down, the surface of the card terminal 4 does not touch the plane 24. An example of the depth d1 is more than 0.1 mm. That is, the card terminal 4 has a height difference of more than −0.1 mm with respect to the card terminal surface. For example, if manufacturing tolerances such as waviness and assembling accuracy of the card terminal 4 are manufactured within ± 0.1 mm with a height difference of more than -0.1 mm, the position of the surface of the card terminal 4 can be changed to the base card 11. It can be made lower than the position of the card terminal surface.

  Thus, even if the position of the surface of the card terminal 4 is made lower than the position of the card terminal surface of the base card 11, the card terminal 4 does not touch the flat surface 24. Therefore, the same effect as that of the first structure can be obtained.

[Third structure]
FIG. 10A is an enlarged cross-sectional view showing the second structure, and FIG. 10B is a cross-sectional view showing the circumstances of the second structure.

  In the second structure, as shown in FIG. 10A, the position of the surface of the card terminal 4 is set to a depth d1 lower than the position of the card terminal surface of the base card 11. For this reason, as shown in FIG. 10B, the terminal of the external interface unit of the electronic device, for example, the contact metal 26 of the card reader or card writer, is displaced by the depth d1. This can reduce the life of the contact metal 26. Further, it is necessary to increase the displacement of the contact metal 26 by the depth d1, which hinders the thickness reduction of the external interface portion. Since the external interface unit is incorporated in various electronic devices using an IC card as a medium, even downsizing and thinning of these electronic devices are hindered.

  If it is desired to eliminate such possibilities, the third structure may be used.

  FIG. 11A is an enlarged cross-sectional view showing the third structure, and FIG. 11B is a cross-sectional view showing a typical effect of the third structure.

  As shown in FIG. 11A, in the third structure, the position of the terminal of the electronic device, for example, the portion where the contact metal slides (hereinafter referred to as the contact metal sliding surface) of the card terminal surface is lower than the position of the card terminal surface. To do. The amount to be lowered is, for example, the depth d1. If the position of the contact metal sliding surface is lowered by a depth d1 with respect to the card terminal surface, the height difference between the surface position of the card terminal 4 and the position of the contact metal sliding surface becomes zero. Thereby, as shown to FIG. 11B, it becomes possible to suppress the displacement of the contact metal 26. FIG. As a result, the contact metal 26 is hardly damaged. In addition, thinning of the external interface is not hindered.

  In addition, although the position of the surface of the card terminal 4 and the position of the contact metal sliding surface have a height difference of 0, this is a height difference of 0 within a tolerance range, for example. In the manufacturing example, for example, with respect to the contact metal sliding surface, the height difference of the surface of the card terminal 4 is aimed at 0, and for example, the manufacturing tolerance such as the undulation of the card terminal 4 and the mounting accuracy may be manufactured within ± 0.1 mm.

  12A to 12C are perspective views showing examples of the third structure of the IC card according to the embodiment of the present invention.

  As the shape of the IC card using the third structure, only the contact metal sliding surface of the card terminal surface may be lowered as shown in FIG. 12A.

  However, as shown in FIG. 12B, not only the contact metal sliding surface but also the card terminal surface, for example, the periphery of the recess 13 may be lowered, and as shown in FIG. The whole may be lowered from the device insertion surface to the end 25 facing the device insertion surface. In this case, the card terminal surface remains in a rib shape at both ends along the device insertion direction of the base card 11.

[Fourth structure]
13A to 13C are cross-sectional views for explaining the background of the fourth structure.

  As shown in FIG. 13A, the package 1 is bonded to the bottom of the recess 13 of the base card 11. As the size of the package 1 increases and the size of the base card 11 decreases, the gaps g1 and g2 between the side surface 27 of the package 1 and the side surface 28 of the recess 13 become very narrow. When the gaps g1 and g2 are narrowed, it becomes difficult to assemble the IC card, particularly to drop the package 1 into the bottom of the recess 13. One reason for this is that it becomes difficult to accurately align the package 1 on the recess 13, for example. For example, as illustrated in FIG. 13B, it is assumed that the package 1 has been handled such that the side surface 27 of the package 1 overlaps the side surface 28 of the recess 13. If the package 1 is dropped or lowered toward the bottom of the recess 13 in this state, the package 1 is caught by the base card 11 and tilted as shown in FIG. 13C. This makes the assembly incomplete.

  In order to improve such a situation, the alignment between the package 1 and the recess 13 may be performed with high accuracy. However, in order to perform highly accurate alignment, there are disadvantages such as an increase in alignment time. If the alignment time increases, the assembly time increases, and the manufacturing cost of the IC card increases.

  In order to eliminate such a situation, the fourth structure is preferably used.

  FIG. 14A is a sectional view showing an example of a fourth structure of the IC card according to one embodiment of the present invention, and FIGS. 14B and 14C are sectional views showing typical effects of the fourth structure.

  As shown in FIG. 14A, in the fourth structure, a chamfered portion 29 is provided at a corner where the side surface 28 of the recess 13 of the base card 11 and the card terminal surface of the base card 11 intersect.

  When the chamfered portion 29 is provided, for example, as shown in FIG. 14B, even when the package 1 is aligned so that the side surface 27 of the package 1 overlaps the side surface 28 of the recess 13, as shown in FIG. If the side surface 27 of the package contacts the chamfered portion 29, the package 1 is guided along the chamfered portion 29 to the bottom of the concave portion 13. As a result, the probability of incomplete assembly is reduced.

  Further, the alignment between the package 1 and the recess 13 may be relatively rough. Therefore, it is possible to suppress an unnecessary increase in manufacturing cost without unnecessarily increasing the alignment time.

  An example of the angle θ1 formed by the chamfered portion 29 with respect to the side surface 28 of the recess 13 is about 5 °. However, the angle θ1 is not limited to about 5 °.

[Fifth structure]
15A and 15B are perspective views for explaining the background of the fifth structure.

  An example of a semiconductor integrated circuit device package used for an IC card according to an embodiment of the present invention is a package 1 that is diced together with the package, as shown in FIGS. 6A to 6D. In the package 1 manufactured in this way, as shown in FIG. 15A, a flash 30 may be generated at the corner. If the package 1 in which the flash 30 is generated is to be bonded to the bottom of the recess 13, the flash 30 is caught by the base card 11 as shown in FIG.

  In order to solve such a situation, the fifth structure is preferably used.

  FIG. 16A is a perspective view showing an example of a fifth structure of the IC card according to the embodiment of the present invention, and FIG. 16B is a perspective view showing a typical effect of the fifth structure.

  As shown to FIG. 16A, in the 5th structure, the escape groove 31 is provided in the corner where the side surfaces of the recessed part 13 cross. In this example, escape grooves 31 are provided at the four corners of the recess 13. The planar shape of the escape groove 31 is, for example, a circle, but of course is not limited to a circle.

  If relief grooves 31 are provided at the corners of the recess 13, the flash 30 is accommodated in the relief grooves 31 as shown in FIG. 16B. For this reason, even the package 1 in which the flash 30 is generated can be bonded to the bottom of the recess 13. As a result, the probability of incomplete assembly is reduced.

  Another advantage of providing the escape groove 31 is that the escape groove 31 also functions as an excess adhesive pool. Excess adhesive may overflow from the gap between the package 1 and the recess 13, for example. If the adhesive overflows, the IC card itself becomes defective, for example, by adhering to the card terminal 4. Alternatively, the IC card itself is a good product, but there is a possibility that the appearance is poor. These are factors that increase the manufacturing cost of the IC card.

  If the recess 13 is provided with the escape groove 31, the excess adhesive is accumulated in the escape groove 31, so that the possibility that the excess adhesive overflows can be reduced. As a result, an unnecessary increase in manufacturing cost can be suppressed.

[Sixth structure]
17A and 17B are cross-sectional views for explaining the background of the sixth structure.

  When bonding the package 1 and the bottom of the recess 13, for example, an adhesive is used. In the assembly process, the amount of adhesive is controlled to be uniform for all IC cards, but the amount varies to some extent. Also, there is some variation in the viscosity. When the amount or viscosity of the adhesive varies, the thickness t2 of the adhesive 2 varies as shown in FIGS. 17A and 17B, for example, the height difference between the card terminal surface and the card terminal 4 varies. FIG. 17B shows an example in which the thickness t2 varies in t2 ′ and the height difference between the card terminal surface and the card terminal 4 varies “t2−t2 ′”.

  In order to solve such a situation, the sixth structure is preferably used.

  FIG. 18A is a perspective view showing an example of a sixth structure of the IC card according to one embodiment of the present invention, and FIG. 18B is a cross-sectional view showing a typical effect of the sixth structure.

  As shown in FIG. 18A, in the sixth structure, a protrusion 32 is provided on the bottom of the recess 13 of the base card 11. In this example, three protrusions 32 are provided on the bottom of the recess 13, and are in contact with the side surfaces of the recess 13. These protrusions 32 determine the bottom dead center of the package 1. Thereby, as shown in FIG. 18B, the package 1 does not go below the protrusion 32. Therefore, even if the amount or viscosity of the adhesive varies, for example, the variation in height difference between the card terminal surface and the card terminal 4 can be reduced.

  In this example, three protrusions 32 are provided. However, if the bottom dead center of the package 1 can be determined, the number of the protrusions 32 may be one or two, and three or more may be provided.

  Further, although the protrusion 32 of this example is provided in contact with the side surface of the recess 13, it is not necessary to contact the side surface of the recess 13. This is because the protrusion 32 only needs to determine the bottom dead center of the package 1.

[Seventh structure]
In the fifth structure, in the IC card according to one embodiment of the present invention, when the package 1 is bonded to the bottom of the recess 13 with the adhesive 2, the adhesive may overflow from the gap between the package 1 and the recess. Explained. The seventh structure relates to a structure that can further reduce the possibility of overflowing adhesive.

  FIG. 19 is a sectional view showing an example of the seventh structure of the IC card according to the embodiment of the present invention.

  As shown in FIG. 19, in the seventh structure, a step 33 is provided at the bottom of the recess 13 of the base card 11. The bottom of the stepped portion 33 is at a position lower than the bottom of the recess 13 so that, for example, excess adhesive 2 accumulates. Further, in this example, the stepped portion 33 is provided in contact with the side surface of the recessed portion 13, but is not limited to this as long as it can store excess adhesive 2. However, excess adhesive 2 overflows along the side surface of the recess 13. For this reason, when the level | step-difference part 33 is provided in contact with the side surface of the recessed part 13, the effect which suppresses the overflow of the adhesive agent 2 can be acquired better.

  Further, although the step portion 33 can be provided at several places on the bottom of the recess 13, for example, one step portion 33 can be provided along the entire side surface of the recess 13.

  Thus, when the overflow of the adhesive agent 2 is suppressed more favorably, the seventh structure is preferably used.

  FIG. 20 is a cross-sectional view showing a modified example of the seventh structure of the IC card according to one embodiment of the present invention.

  As shown in FIG. 20, the seventh structure can be used in combination with the protrusion 32 that determines the bottom dead center of the package 1 when the adhesive 2 is used. In the present modification, the step portion 33 is provided in contact with the protrusion 32, but of course the present invention is not limited to this.

  Further, although not particularly shown, it is of course possible to use the seventh structure and the fifth structure in combination.

[Eighth structure]
FIG. 21A is a plan view showing an example of an eighth structure of the IC card according to one embodiment of the present invention, and FIG. 21B is a diagram showing a typical effect of the eighth structure.

  As shown in FIG. 21A, in the eighth structure, the width of the base card 11 becomes narrower in the direction of insertion into the electronic device. In this example, the width W1 of the device insertion surface is narrower than the width W2 of the surface 25 facing the device insertion surface. For this reason, the side surfaces 34 and 35 along the insertion direction of the base card 11 into the electronic device are tapered so as to become narrower in the insertion direction. An example of the angle θ2 is about 1 ° with respect to the insertion direction. Moreover, in this example, a part of side surfaces 34 and 35 of the base card 11 corresponds to the insertion direction. Therefore, the angle θ3 measured from the side surface 34 or 35 is about 179 °. Of course, these angles θ2 and θ3 are examples, and are not limited to about 1 ° and about 179 °.

  A typical effect of the eighth structure is that the alignment between the IC card and the card slot 36 of the external interface is improved.

  For example, as shown in FIG. 21B, even when the IC card is inserted with a deviation from the card slot 36, if the side surfaces 34 and 35 have a taper that narrows in the insertion direction, the IC card follows the taper. To the card slot 36. Therefore, the alignment between the IC card and the card slot 36 is improved.

  If it is desired to improve the alignment between the IC card and the card slot 36, the eighth structure may be used.

[Ninth structure]
FIG. 22A is a plan view showing an example of a ninth structure of the IC card according to one embodiment of the present invention, and FIG. 22B is a view showing a typical effect of the ninth structure.

  As shown in FIG. 22A, in the ninth structure, the thickness of the base card 11 is reduced in the insertion direction into the electronic device. In this example, the thickness t2 of the device insertion surface is thinner than the thickness t2 of the surface 25 facing the device insertion surface. In this example, among the card terminal surfaces along the insertion direction of the base card 11 into the electronic device, for example, the contact metal sliding surface is tapered so as to become thinner in the insertion direction. An example of the angle θ4 is about 15 ° with respect to the insertion direction. Of course, about 15 ° is an example, and is not limited to about 15 °.

  A typical effect of the ninth structure is that the feeling of operation of the IC card becomes soft. Although there are various factors, one of typical factors that can be considered is shown in FIG. 22B.

  As shown in FIG. 22B, when the IC card is inserted into the external interface, the contact metal sliding surface comes into contact with the contact metal 26. From this point, the IC card is inserted while sliding obliquely with respect to the insertion direction along the taper formed on the contact metal sliding surface. If inserted while sliding obliquely with respect to the insertion direction, a force that reacts against the insertion force, for example, a frictional force, acts in an oblique direction with respect to the insertion direction. When the frictional force acts in an oblique direction with respect to the insertion direction, the sense of resistance transmitted to the fingertip becomes smaller than when the frictional force acts directly along the insertion direction. For example, the operation feeling becomes soft with such a phenomenon as one factor.

[Tenth structure]
FIG. 23A is a plan view showing an example of a tenth structure of the IC card according to one embodiment of the present invention, and FIG. 23B is a side view seen from the device insertion surface side.

  In the IC card according to one embodiment of the present invention, the periphery of the recess 13 is made lower on the card terminal surface, and there is a step 37.

  As shown in FIGS. 23A and 23B, in the tenth structure, the width of the step 37 is increased in the direction of insertion into the electronic device. For this reason, the side surfaces 38 and 39 along the insertion direction of the step 37 into the electronic device are tapered so as to become wider in the insertion direction. An example of the angle θ5 is about 1 ° with respect to the insertion direction. Moreover, in this example, a part of side surfaces 38 and 39 of the level | step difference 37 corresponds to the insertion direction. Therefore, the angle θ6 measured from the side surface 38 or 39 is about 179 °. Of course, these angles θ2 and θ3 are examples, and are not limited to about 1 ° and about 179 °.

  Next, typical effects of the tenth structure will be described.

  In the 10th structure, the width | variety of the level | step difference 37 is wide toward the insertion direction to an electronic device. By utilizing this structure, an IC card alignment guide can be provided in the card slot of the electronic device. 24A and 24B show an example of a card slot with guide.

  24A is a side view of the card slot with guide as seen from the IC card insertion surface side, and FIG. 24B is a diagram schematically showing the IC card insertion.

  As shown in FIG. 24A, a guide 202 is provided in the card slot 201 of the electronic device 200. The guide 202 according to this example is a protruding guide that is provided at the top of the card slot 201 and protrudes toward the bottom of the card slot 201. Of course, the shape of the guide 202 is not limited to the protruding guide shown in FIG. 24A.

  The base card (IC card) 11 is inserted into the card slot 201 having such a guide 202. At this time, if the insertion position is shifted, either the side surface 38 or the side surface 39 contacts the guide 202 as shown in FIG. 24B. FIG. 24B shows a case where the side surface 38 is in contact. Thereafter, the base card (IC card) 11 is guided to the card slot 201 along a taper formed on the side surface 38.

  As described above, according to the tenth structure, for example, the effect that it is possible to newly provide the IC card alignment guide 202 in the card slot 201 of the electronic device 200 can be obtained.

  Next, the device applied to the semiconductor integrated circuit device package used in the IC card according to the embodiment of the present invention will be described.

  The wiring board 3 is provided with a connection portion 7 for electrically connecting the card terminal 4 to the semiconductor integrated circuit chip 8. There are several forms of the connecting portion 7, and typical forms are shown in FIGS. 25A to 25C, 26A, and 26B.

  The connection portion 7 shown in FIG. 25A has a form generally called “through hole”. The through hole is a hole provided in the insulating substrate 41 of the wiring board 3. A conductive material is formed around the hole. The card terminal 4 is connected to the wiring 6 through a conductive material formed around the hole.

  The connection portion 7 shown in FIG. 25B has a form similar to that of the through hole shown in FIG. 25A, but is different in that, for example, a hole provided in the insulating substrate 41 is filled with a conductive material.

  The connection portion 7 shown in FIG. 25C has a form generally called “blind via”. The blind via is, for example, a hole provided in the insulating substrate 41 hidden by a conductive material.

  The connecting portion 7 shown in FIG. 26A is generally called “bump”. The bump is, for example, a conductive material embedded in a hole provided in the insulating substrate 41. The card terminal 4 is connected to the wiring 6 through a conductive material embedded in the hole.

  The connection portion 7 shown in FIG. 26B has a form generally called “via hole”. The via hole is a hole formed up to an intermediate wiring layer when the wiring substrate 3 has a multilayer structure, for example. The card terminal 4 is connected to the wiring 6 through a conductive material formed in the via hole and several layers of wiring.

  The form of the connection part 7 provided in the wiring board 3 is formed by such forms, for example. Of course, the form of the connecting portion 7 is not limited to the form shown in the figure.

  The card terminal 4 is repeatedly contacted with, for example, a contact metal. At this time, a mechanical force is repeatedly applied to the card terminal 4 along the planar direction of the wiring board 3, for example. Since the card terminal 4 itself is formed along the plane direction of the wiring board 3, it can withstand the mechanical force to some extent. However, since the connection part 7 is formed, for example along the depth direction of the wiring board 3, it cannot endure the said mechanical force like the card terminal 4. FIG. For this reason, when the said mechanical force is added to the connection part 7, the connection part 7 may destroy.

  27A to 27C are plan views each showing an example of a semiconductor integrated circuit device package used in an IC card according to an embodiment of the present invention.

  As shown in FIG. 27A, the package 1 according to an example has a plurality of card terminals 4. The shape seen from the plane of the plurality of card terminals 4 is straight. And the connection part 7 provided in each card terminal 4 is provided in the position offset from the center 50 of the straight card terminal 4, respectively. Further, as shown in FIG. 27B, each connection portion 7 is arranged in a straight line, for example, so as to be entirely within the straight connection portion region 51. Thereby, all the connection parts 7 are formed in the straight connection part area | region 51, for example. Then, for example, as illustrated in FIG. 1A, the package 1 is bonded to the base card 11 in such a direction that the connection portion region 51 is located on the opposite side to the device insertion surface.

  When bonded in this way, the connection portion 7 is provided at a position opposite to the electronic device insertion surface. For example, as shown in FIG. It can be provided in a portion other than the region 52 that rubs against a terminal of an electronic device, for example, a contact metal.

  If the connection portion 7 is provided in a region other than the rubbing region 52, the breakage of the connection portion 7 can be suppressed, and an unexpected failure of the semiconductor integrated circuit chip can be suppressed. As a result, it is possible to improve the reliability of the IC card, for example, regarding the lifetime.

  Next, some ideas that can be applied to the IC card according to one embodiment of the present invention or the semiconductor integrated circuit device package used in the IC card will be described as modifications of the present invention.

  Further, when the overhang 53 is formed on the base card 11, it is difficult to bond the package 1 to the bottom of the recess 13. This is because the package 1 is caught by the overhang 53.

  However, such difficulties can be solved if the package 1 is a flexible package represented by, for example, PTP (Paper Thin Package). Even if there is an overhang 53 above the recess 13, the package can be inserted into the bottom of the recess 13 by bending the flexible package, for example.

Even in this case, inadvertent detachment of the package 1 from the base card 11 can be prevented as in the first, second, and third modifications.

  Further, in the fourth modification, for example, if the connection portion 7 is covered with the cover 55, the intrusion into the inside of the package 1 via the connection portion 7 such as a contamination source or moisture is prevented as in the third modification. There is an effect that can be suppressed.

[Fifth Modification]

  As shown in FIG. 33, in the sixth modification, the length L1 of the straight card terminal 4 is shorter than that of the straight card terminal 4 shown in FIG.
