  • BACKGROUND
  • To obtain the maximum function and efficiency from a package having minimum dimensions, various types of increased density packages have been developed. Among these various types of packages is the multiple-die semiconductor chip package, commonly referred to as a multi-chip module, multi-chip package or stacked chip package. A multi-chip module includes one or more integrated circuit semiconductor chips, often referred to as circuit die, stacked one onto another to provide the advantages of light weight, high density, and enhanced electrical performance. To stack the semiconductor chips, each chip can be lifted by a chip-bonding tool, which is usually mounted at the end of a pick-and-place device, and mounted onto the substrate or onto a semiconductor chip mounted previously.
  • In some circumstances, such as when the upper die is smaller than the lower die and the lower die is a peripheral bonded die (that is die with bond pads positioned near the periphery of the die as opposed to a center bonded die in which the bond pads are positioned at a central region of the die), the upper die can be attached directly to the lower die without the use of spacers. However, when spacers are needed between the upper and lower die, spacer die, that is die without circuitry, can be used between the upper and lower die. In addition, adhesives containing spacer elements, typically micro spheres, are often used to properly separate the upper and lower die. See U.S. Pat. Nos. 5,323,060; 6,333,562; 6,340,846; 6,388,313; 6,472,758; 6,569,709; 6,593,662;.6,441,496; and U.S. patent Publication No. US 2003/0178710.
  • After the chip mounting process, bonding pads of the chips are connected to bonding pads of the substrate with Au or Al wires during a wire bonding process to create an array of semiconductor chip devices. Finally, the semiconductor chips and their associated wires connected to the substrate are encapsulated, typically using an epoxy-molding compound, to create an array of encapsulated semiconductor devices. The molding compound protects the semiconductor devices from the external environment, such as physical shock and humidity. After encapsulation, the encapsulated devices are separated, typically by sawing, into individual semiconductor chip packages.
  • SUMMARY
  • In general, the invention features stacked semiconductor assemblies in which a device such as a die, or a package, or a heat spreader is stacked over a first wire-bonded die. An adhesive/spacer structure is situated between the first wire-bonded die and the device stacked over it, and the device has an electrically non-conductive surface facing the first wire-bonded die. That is, the first die is mounted active side upward on a first substrate and is electrically interconnected to the substrate by wire bonding; an adhesive/spacer structure is formed upon the active side of the first die; and a device such as a die or a package or a heat spreader, having an electrically nonconductive side, is mounted upon the adhesive/spacer structure with the electrically nonconductive side facing the first wire bonded die. The side of the device facing the first wire bonded die may be made electrically nonconductive by having an electrically insulating layer, such as a dielectric film adhesive.
  • In one aspect the invention features a multiple-die semiconductor chip assembly. A first die has a first surface bounded by a periphery and bond pads at the first surface. Wires are bonded to and extend from the bond pads outwardly past the periphery. A second die has an electrically non-conductive second surface positioned opposite the first surface. The first and second die define a first region therebetween. An adhesive/spacer structure, comprising spacer elements within an adhesive, is within the first region. The adhesive/spacer structure contacts the first and second surfaces and adheres the first and second die to one another at a chosen separation. The assembly may comprise a set of generally parallel wires which define a wire span portion of the first region. The adhesive/spacer structure is preferably located at other than the wire span portion of the first region.
  • In another aspect the invention features a method for adhering first and second die to one another at a chosen separation in a multiple-die semiconductor chip assembly. An adhesive/spacer material, having spacer elements within an adhesive, is selected. The adhesive/spacer material is deposited onto a first surface of a first die. The first surface is bounded by a periphery and has bond pads. A set of generally parallel wires is bonded to and extends from the bond pads outwardly past the periphery. The set of generally parallel wires define a wire span portion of the first surface. A second die, having an electrically non-conductive second surface, is selected. The second surface of the second die is located opposite the first surface of the first die and in contact with the adhesive/spacer material therebetween thereby securing the first and second die to one another at a chosen separation, the wire span portion of the first surface defining a wire span region between the first and second surfaces. The adhesive/spacer material is deposited in a manner to prevent any spacer elements from entering the wire span region.
  • In another aspect the invention features stacked semiconductor assemblies including an upper package stacked over a first wire-bonded die. The first die has a first surface bounded by a periphery and bond pads at the first surface. Wires are bonded to and extend from the bond pads outwardly past the periphery. An upper package has an electrically non-conductive second surface positioned opposite the first surface of the first die. The first die and the upper package define a first region therebetween. An adhesive/spacer structure, comprising spacer elements within an adhesive, is within the first region. The adhesive/spacer structure contacts the first and second surfaces and adheres the first die and the upper package to one another at a chosen separation. The assembly may comprise a set of generally parallel wires which define a wire span portion of the first region. The adhesive/spacer structure is preferably located at other than the wire span portion of the first region.
  • The upper package in the stacked semiconductor assembly includes at least one upper package die affixed to a die attach side of an upper package substrate. In some embodiments the upper package is oriented so that the die attach side of the upper package substrate faces the first die; that is, the upper package is inverted. In other embodiments the upper package is oriented so that the side of the upper package substrate opposite the die attach side faces the first die. The upper package may be any of a variety of package types can be suitable as the upper package.

An adhesive/spacer material, having spacer elements within an adhesive, is selected. The adhesive/spacer material is deposited onto a first surface of a first die. The first surface is bounded by a periphery and has bond pads. A set of generally parallel wires is bonded to and extends from the bond pads outwardly past the periphery. The set of generally parallel wires define a wire span portion of the first surface. A package, having an electrically non-conductive second surface, is selected. The second surface of the package is located opposite the first surface of the die and in contact with the adhesive/spacer material therebetween thereby securing the die and the package to one another at a chosen separation, the wire span portion of the first surface defining a wire span region between the first and second surfaces. The adhesive/spacer material is deposited in a manner to prevent any spacer elements from entering the wire span region.

  • DETAILED DESCRIPTION
  • The invention will now be described in further detail by reference to the drawings, which illustrate alternative embodiments of the invention. The drawings are diagrammatic, showing features of the invention and their relation to other features and structures, and are not made to scale. For improved clarity of presentation, in the FIGs. illustrating embodiments of the invention, elements corresponding to elements shown in other drawings are not all particularly renumbered, although they are all readily identifiable in all the FIGs. Terms of orientation, such as “upper” and “lower” and the like are employed for reference to the relative orientation of the various features as shown in the FIGs., it being understood that any of the various assemblies can be deployed in any orientation in use.
  • Several prior art structures and embodiments made according to the invention are discussed below. Like reference numerals refer to like elements.
  • FIG. 1 illustrates a conventional peripheral bonded die 10 mounted to a substrate 12. Die 10 has bond pads 14 along one, some or all of its peripheral edges 16-19. Wires 20 connect bond pads 14 to corresponding bond pads 22 on substrate 12. Wires 20 comprise sets of generally parallel wires along each peripheral edge 16-18 and define wire span areas 24, indicated by crosshatching in FIG. 1, along such edges. Bond pads 14 on peripheral bonded die 10 are typically placed very close to the corresponding peripheral edge 16-19, typically within 100 micrometers of the peripheral edge.
  • FIG. 2 illustrates a conventional center bonded die 26, such as a DRAM, having bond pads 14 at a central region 28 of die 26. Wires 20 extending from bond pads 14 define, in this example, wire span areas 24 between the two sets of bond pads 14 and peripheral edges 16, 18. The distance between bond pads 14 and the corresponding peripheral edges for a center bonded die is preferably much more than 100 micrometers. More preferably, the distance between a bond pad 14 for a center bonded die 26 and the nearest peripheral edge is at least about 40% of the corresponding length or width of the die. For example, the distance between a bond pad 14A and peripheral edge 16 is at least about 40% of the length of peripheral edge 17. Assuming for example that peripheral edge 17 is 8 mm long, the distance between bond pad 14A and peripheral edges 16 is at least about 3.2 mm.
  • FIGS. 3 and 4 illustrate conventional forward loop wire bonding and conventional reverse wire bonding techniques. Forward loop wire bond 30 of FIG. 3 has a wire loop height 32, typically about 60-100 micrometers. Wire 20 has a recrystalization zone 34. Recrystalization zone 34 is not as flexible as the remainder of wire 20 so that excessive flexion of wire 20 within zone 34 may cause wire 22 to break. Therefore, in it is important that wire 20, especially within recrystalization zone 34, not be deformed to any significant degree during manufacturing. This is especially important in the manufacture of multi-chip packages. To reduce the loop height 32 and eliminate recrystalization zone 34 above bond pads 14, a reverse wire bond 36, shown in FIG. 4, may be used. Reverse wire bonds 36 typically have a loop height 32 of about 40-70 micrometers. Forward loop wire bonding, shown in FIG. 5, is often preferred over reverse wire bonding because it has a much larger throughput and the therefore a lower cost.
  • FIG. 5 illustrates a partial cross sectional view of a multi-die semiconductor assembly 40 made according to the invention. Assembly 40 includes a lower, peripheral bonded die 42 and an upper die 44. Assembly 40 protects against shorting of wires 20 against upper die 44 in two basic ways. First, upper die 44 has electrically insulating layer 45, typically a dielectric film adhesive, such as available from Lintec Corporation as Lintec LE5000 or an Hitachi DF series film adhesive. Second, lower die 42, also shown in FIG. 6, is secured to upper die 44 with an adhesive/spacer structure 46. Structure 46 includes adhesive 48 and spacer elements 50. Structure 46 may be a conventional material such as Loctite® QMI536-3, 4, or 6, which use nominal 3, 4 or 6 mil (75, 100 and 150 micrometers) diameter organic polymer spherical particles as spacer elements 50; or a spacer adhesive from the Ablestik 2025 Sx series. It is preferred that spacer elements 50 be of an organic polymer material and pliable and large enough to permit forward loop wire bonding. Spacer elements 50 are typically about 30-250 micrometers in diameter. Structure 46 also helps to provide bond line thickness control and die tilt control. Prevention of the incursion of the adhesive/spacer material, and in particular spacers 50, into wire span portion 60 of first, adhesive region 58 (refer to FIG. 6) may be achieved by, for example, depositing the adhesive/spacer material at selected positions and carefully controlling the amount deposited at each position. Examples of suitable materials for spacer elements 50 include PTFE and other organic polymers.
  • Spacer elements 50, prior to use, are typically spherical, ellipsoidal, cylindrical with hemispherical or ellipsoidal ends, or the like. After assembly, assuming spacer elements 50 are compressible, spacer elements 50 are compressed to some degree and have flattened areas where they contact upper surface 52 of lower die 42 and the electrically non-conductive lower surface 54 of upper die 44; the shape of such spacers is collectively referred to as generally ellipsoidal. For example, an initially spherical spacer element 50 having an 8 mil (200 micrometer) diameter will typically compress to a height of about 7.5 mil (188 micrometers). The height 56 of spacers 50, which is equal to the distance between surface 52 and 54, is preferably at least equal to loop height 32, is more preferably greater than loop height 32, is even more preferably at least about 10% greater than loop height 32. If desired, the selection of the spacer elements include selecting spacer elements so that height 56 is equal to the design loop height 32 plus an allowance for manufacturing tolerance build-up resulting from making the wire bonds, the variance in the size and compressibility the of spacer elements 50 and other appropriate variables.
  • FIG. 6 illustrates assembly 40 with upper die 44 indicated by dashed lines. Lower and upper die 42, 44 define a first, adhesive region 58 therebetween. In the embodiment of FIGS. 5 and 6, region 58 is defined by the periphery of lower die 42 because upper die 44 extends beyond the entire periphery of the lower die. Wire span areas 24, indicated by crosshatching, define wire span portions 60 of first, adhesive region 58. The adhesive/spacer material is deposited in a manner so that, as shown in FIG. 6, adhesive/spacer structure 46 is located at other than wire span portions 60 of first, adhesive region 58. Doing so helps to ensure that spacer elements 50 do not interfere with wires 20 thus eliminating the possibility of a spacer element causing one or more wires 22 to deflect to contact and thus short, for example, an adjacent wire 22.
  • FIG. 7 illustrates a multi-die semiconductor assembly 62 in which lower die 42 is a center bonded die such as shown in FIG. 2 and upper die 44, shown in dashed lines, is longer but narrower than lower die 42. Therefore, in this embodiment first, adhesive region 58 does not cover the entire lower die 42 but rather is bounded by peripheral edges 17 and 19 of lower die 42 and peripheral edges 16 and 18 of upper die 44. Adhesive/spacer structure 46 is, in the embodiment of FIG. 6, located within first, adhesive region 58 at other than wire span portions 60. Adhesive/spacer structure 46 may define a single adhesive/spacer structure region as shown in FIG. 6 or two or more adhesive/spacer structure regions, such as shown in FIG. 7.
  • Adhesive/spacer material may be deposited using a conventional dispenser capillary. However, it is preferred that the adhesive/spacer material be deposited using a showerhead type of dispenser as shown in the above-mentioned US Provisional Patent Application entitled Adhesive/Spacer Island Structure For Multiple Die Package. Doing so can facilitate the positioning of the adhesive/spacer material at spaced apart locations to provide the desired coverage by adhesive/spacer structure 46. This may be especially advantageous when working with center bonded die.
  • FIG. 8 is a side cross sectional view of multi-die semiconductor assembly 40 of FIGS. 5 and 6 showing wires 20 extending from bond pads 14 of upper and lower die 44, 42 to bond pads 22 of substrate 12. FIG. 9 illustrates the structure of FIG. 8 after a molding compound 66 has been applied to create a multiple die semiconductor chip package 68.
  • Spacer elements 50 may also be prevented from incursion into wire span portion 60 by sizing the spacer elements so as not to fit between the generally parallel wires 20. In this way wires 20 act as a sieve or strainer to permit a portion 47 of adhesive 48 to enter into wire span portion 60 but prevent spacer elements 50 from doing so. This is illustrated in FIG. 10, showing adhesive/spacer structure 46 including adhesive 48, with spacer elements 50 situated in regions other than the wire span portion of the adhesive region, and showing a portion 47 of adhesive 48 having entered into the wire span portion of the adhesive region. In such embodiments, the spacer elements provide a suitable distance between the two die, the lower surface of the upper die being electrically insulated by dielectric layer 45, as described above with reference to FIG. 5. The full occupancy of adhesive region 58 by adhesive 48, particularly the portion 47 of the adhesive in the wire span region, eliminates the open overhang of the upper die above wires 20 shown in FIG. 5. This provides some support for the upper die, and helps to reduce or eliminate die breakage, which is especially useful for large and thin semiconductor devices.
  • The adhesive/spacer structure according to the invention can be useful for multi-die assembly structures in which the upper die 44 does not extend over the edge of the lower die 42, as illustrated in FIG. 11, which is a view similar to the view of FIG. 9. Here, as in FIG. 10, spacer structure 46 including spacer elements 50 and adhesive 48 is formed between the upper die 44 with insulating layer 45, and the lower die 42. The wires 20 prevent the spacer elements from entering into the wire span region, but permit a portion 47 of the adhesive 48 to fill the volume there and provide support for the part of the upper 44 die that overhangs the wire loops 20.
  • In other embodiments, a stacked semiconductor assembly includes a package stacked with a die, separated by an adhesive/spacer material generally as described above for stacked die assemblies. FIGS. 12 and 13 illustrate examples 102, 103 of such assemblies, in which an inverted package is stacked over a die. Referring to FIG. 12, a lower, peripheral bonded die 142 is mounted upon a substrate 112, and bond pads on the die are electrically interconnected with bond pads on the substrate by wire bonds 120. An adhesive/spacer structure 146 is formed upon the die 142 including an adhesive and spacer elements as described above with reference to adhesive/spacer structure 46. An upper package 100 is inverted and mounted upon the adhesive/spacer structure 146, in substantially the same manner as the upper die 44 is mounted upon adhesive/spacer structure 46 in the stacked die assembly 40, for example, of FIG. 8.
  • The upper package 100 in this example is a land grid array package, having a die 242 mounted onto a die attach side on upper package substrate 112. Die 242 in this example is wire bonded to substrate 112, and the die and wire bonds are enclosed in an encapsulation 217. The package 100 is inverted so that the land side of the substrate 212 faces away from the first die 142 and substrate 212, and so that an upper surface of the encapsulation 217 faces toward the first die 142 and substrate 212. In the orientation of FIG. 12, the land side of the inverted upper package 212 is upward-facing, and the upper package is electrically interconnected with the bottom substrate 212 by wire bonds between bond pads on the land side of the upper package substrate 212 and bond pads on the upward-facing side of the lower substrate 112. The assembly is then encapsulated (not shown in FIG. 12) to form a package, substantially as the stacked die assembly 40 of FIG. 8 is encapsulated to form the package 68 of FIG. 9. Solder balls 118 are mounted onto pads on the downward-facing side of the substrate 112, for interconnection of the package to, for example, a motherboard. Multiple chip modules having inverted package stacked over a die, in which the adhesive/spacer structures described herein may be particularly suitable, are described in U.S. patent application Ser. No. 11/014,257.
  • In other embodiments, two (or more) die may be stacked using an adhesive/spacer structure over one another on a lower substrate, and a package may be stacked over the uppermost one of the stacked die, using an adhesive/spacer structure, as shown by way of example in FIG. 13. Here, a die 142 is mounted onto a lower substrate 112, and a die 144 is stacked over the die 142, and separated from it by an adhesive/spacer structure 246 as described above for stacked die assemblies. Die 142 and 144 are electrically interconnectedd with substrate 112 by wire bonds 220. An inverted pachage 100 is mounted over the stacked die 142, 144, separated by the die 144 by and adhesive/spacer structure 246, as described above with reference to FIG. 12. As will be appreciated, either or both of the spacers, between the die, and between the die and the inverted package, may be an adhesive/spacer structre as described above with referenbce to stacked die assemblies.
  • Any of a variety of packages may be stacked over the die in assemblies according to these embodiments of the invention. Stacked multi-package modules having inverted upper packages are described in U.S. patent application Ser. No. 10/681,572; and examples of suitable upper inverted package types are described therein. These include, for example, besides land grid array packages as illustrated in FIGS. 12 and 13, bump chip carrier packages; and the upper package may include more than one die. Where the upper package encapsulant has a generally planar surface that contacts the adhesive/spacer structure, that surface (termed the “second” surface) is itself electrically nonconductive, and application of an additional insulating layer (as layer 45 in FIGS. 5, 8, 10 and 11) may be optional in such embodiments. Where, however, the second surface of the upper package is an electrically conductive material (such as a metal heat spreader, for example) or includes exposed electrically conductive areas or elements, an insulating layer 45 should be applied, as described above with reference for example to FIG. 5.
  • In still other embodiments, in which a stacked semiconductor assembly includes a package stacked with a die, separated by an adhesive/spacer material generally as described above for stacked die assemblies, the upper package is not inverted. FIGS. 14 and 15 illustrate examples 104, 104 of such assemblies. Referring to FIG. 14, a lower, peripheral bonded die 142 is mounted upon a substrate 112, and bond pads on the die are electrically interconnected with bond pads on the substrate by wire bonds 120. An adhesive/spacer structure 146 is formed upon the die 142 including an adhesive and spacer elements as described above with reference to adhesive/spacer structure 46. An upper package 400 is inverted and mounted upon the adhesive/spacer structure 146, in substantially the same manner as the upper die 44 is mounted upon adhesive/spacer structure 46 in the stacked die assembly 40, for example, of FIG. 8.
  • The upper package 400 in this example is a land grid array package, having a die 442 mounted onto a die attach side on upper package substrate 412. Die 442 in this example is wire bonded to substrate 412, and the die and wire bonds are enclosed in a mold cap 417. Here the package 400 is oriented so that the land side of the substrate 412 faces toward the first die 142 and substrate 212, and so that the land side of the upper package substrate 412 faces toward the first die 142 and substrate 212. In the orientation of FIG. 14, the land side of the inverted upper package 412 is downward-facing, and the upper package is electrically interconnected with the bottom substrate 112 by wire bonds between bond pads on the upward-facing (die attach) side of the upper package substrate 412 and bond pads on the upward-facing side of the lower substrate 112. The assembly is then encapsulated (not shown in FIG. 14) to form a package, substantially as the stacked die assembly 40 of FIG. 8 is encapsulated to form the package 68 of FIG. 9. Solder balls 118 are mounted onto pads on the downward-facing side of the substrate 112, for interconnection of the package to, for example, a motherboard.
  • In other embodiments, two (or more) die may be stacked using an adhesive/spacer structure over one another on a lower substrate, and a package may be stacked over the uppermost one of the stacked die, using an adhesive/spacer structure, as shown by way of example in FIG. 15. Here, as in FIG. 13, a die 142 is mounted onto a lower substrate 112, and a die 144 is stacked over the die 142, and separated from it by an adhesive/spacer structure 246 as described above for stacked die assemblies. Die 142 and 144 are electrically interconnectedd with substrate 112 by wire bonds 220. An inverted pachage 100 is mounted over the stacked die 142, 144, separated by the die 144 by and adhesive/spacer structure 246, as described above with reference to FIG. 14. As will be appreciated, either or both of the spacers, between the die, and between the die and the inverted package, may be an adhesive/spacer structre as described above with referenbce to stacked die assemblies.
  • Any of a variety of packages may be stacked over the die in assemblies according to these embodiments of the invention. Stacked multi-package modules suitable upper packages are described in U.S. patent applications Ser. Nos. 10/632,549; 10/632,568; 10/632,551; 10/632,552; 10/632,553; and 10/632,550; and examples of suitable upper package types are described therein. These include, for example, besides land grid array packages as illustrated in FIGS. 14 and 15, bump chip carrier packages, and flip chip packages; and the upper package may include more than one die. Where the downward-facing surface of the upper package (“second” surface) had electrically conductive elements or areas, application of an additional insulating layer (as layer 45 in FIGS. 5, 8, 10 and 11) may be required and may be applied as described above with reference for example to FIG. 5, and as shown for example at 450 in FIGS. 14 and 15. This additional insulating layer may be applied as a film to the land side of the upper package substrate, and voids between the film and the substrate surface removed by heating at low pressure, according to techniques known in the art.
  • Other devices may be stacked over the first die, and separated therefrom by an adhesive/spacer structure as described above, and provided with an insulating layer as appropriate. For example, a metal heat spreader may be stacked upon an adhesive/spacer structure over the first die in place of the upper die or upper package in the descriptions above.
  • The assemblies and packages according to the invention can be useful in any of a variety of products, such as for example computers, mobile telecommunications devices, personal digital assistance devices, media storage devices, particularly portable cameras and audio and video equipment.
  • Any and all patents, patent applications and printed publications referred to above are incorporated by reference.
  • Other modification and variation can be made to the disclosed embodiments without departing from the subject of the invention as defined in following claims.
