Description

    PRIORITY STATEMENT
  • This U.S. non-provisional application claims benefit of priority under 35 U.S.C. §119 from Korean Patent Application No. 2004-104247, filed on Dec. 10, 2004, the entire contents of which are incorporated herein by reference.
  • BACKGROUND
  • 1. Field of the Invention
  • The present invention relates in general to a semiconductor packaging technique and, more particularly, to a semiconductor chip stack package and a method for manufacturing the semiconductor chip stack package.
  • 2. Description of the Related Art
  • In an effort to improve integration in a package assembly process, stacking techniques may be employed in which a plurality of integrated circuit (“IC”) chips and/or unit packages may be stacked on a circuit substrate. An example stacking technique may implement bare chip packages.
  • Bare chip packages (e.g., flip chip packages and wafer level packages) may have IC chips on which conductive bumps may be provided as external connection structures. Bare chip packages may reduce package size to a chip size level, similar to chip scale packages.
  • Various methods may be employed for manufacturing stack packages using bare chip packages. For example, bare chips may be flip chip bonded on a flexible circuit substrate and the flexible circuit substrate may be bent to form a vertical stack structure. Bare chips may have via holes to connect wirings of upper and lower chips. Bare chips may be mounted on a circuit substrate and connected to the circuit substrate using connection terminals.
  • Although the conventional methods are generally thought to be acceptable, they are not without shortcomings. For example conventional techniques may result in complicated stack structures and/or conventional techniques may involve difficult and/or inefficient stacking processes. Further, connection terminals connecting upper and lower bare chips may be exposed to the external environment, and this may reduce reliability. The connection terminals (which may be arranged on the outside of bare chips) may lead to increased package size.
  • SUMMARY
  • According to an example, non-limiting embodiment of the present invention, a package may include a lower unit package and an upper unit package. The upper and the lower unit packages may each include a circuit substrate having a lower surface and an upper surface. Wire bonding pads may be provided on the lower surface of the circuit substrate, and chip bonding pads may be provided on the upper surface of the circuit substrate. An IC chip may be provided on the lower surface of the circuit substrate. The IC chip may have an active surface with wire lands and bump lands. Chip bumps may be provided on the bump lands. Bonding wires may connect the wire bonding pads of the circuit substrate to the wire lands of the IC chip. The chip bumps of the upper unit package may be connected to the chip bonding pads of the lower unit package.
  • According to another example, non-limiting embodiment of the present invention, a method may involve providing a first circuit substrate strip including a plurality of unit packages. The individual unit packages may be separated from the first circuit substrate strip. The individual unit packages may be provided on a second circuit substrate strip to provide a plurality of stack structures. A molding resin may be provided on the stack structures of the second circuit substrate strip. Individual stack packages may be separated from the second circuit substrate strip.
  • According to another example, non-limiting embodiment of the present invention, a package may include an upper unit package and a lower unit package.
