Description

    CROSS-REFERENCE TO RELATED APPLICATION
  • [0001]
    This application is a divisional of U.S. application Ser. No. 11/217,169 filed Sep. 1, 2005, which is incorporated herein by reference in its entirety.
  • TECHNICAL FIELD
  • [0002]
    The present invention relates to methods for forming interconnects in microfeature workpieces and microfeature workpieces formed using such methods.
  • BACKGROUND
  • [0003]
    Microelectronic devices, micromechanical devices, and other devices with microfeatures are typically formed by constructing several layers of components on a workpiece. In the case of microelectronic devices, a plurality of dies are fabricated on a single workpiece, and each die generally includes an integrated circuit and a plurality of bond-pads coupled to the integrated circuit. The dies are separated from each other and packaged to form individual microelectronic devices that can be attached to modules or installed in other products.
  • [0004]
    One aspect of fabricating and packaging such dies is forming interconnects that electrically couple conductive components located in different layers. In some applications, it may be desirable to form interconnects that extend completely through the dies or through a significant portion of the dies. Such interconnects electrically couple bond-pads or other conductive elements proximate to one side of the dies to conductive elements proximate to the other side of the dies. Through-wafer interconnects, for example, are constructed by forming deep vias on the front side and/or backside of the workpiece and in alignment with corresponding bond-pads at the front side of the workpiece. The vias are often blind vias in that they are closed at one end. The blind vias are then filled with a conductive fill material. After further processing, the workpiece is thinned to reduce the thickness of the final dies. Solder balls or other external electrical contacts are subsequently attached to the through-wafer interconnects at the backside and/or the front side of the workpiece. The solder balls or external contacts can be attached either before or after singulating the dies from the workpiece.
  • [0005]
    Conventional processes for forming external contacts on through-wafer interconnects include (a) depositing a dielectric layer on the backside of the workpiece, (b) forming a photoresist on the dielectric layer, (c) patterning and developing the photoresist, (d) etching the dielectric layer to form holes aligned with corresponding interconnects, (e) removing the photoresist from the workpiece, and (f) forming conductive external contacts in the holes in the dielectric layer. One concern with forming external contacts on the backside of a workpiece is that conventional processes are relatively expensive because patterning the photoresist requires a mask. Masks are expensive and time-consuming to construct because they require very expensive photolithography equipment to achieve the tolerances required in semiconductor devices. Accordingly, there is a need to reduce the cost of forming external contacts on workpieces with through-wafer interconnects.

  • [0026]
    In another embodiment, a method includes forming an electrically conductive interconnect having a first portion at the terminal and a second portion at an intermediate depth in the substrate. The electrically conductive interconnect is electrically connected to the terminal. The method further includes thinning the substrate from the second side to at least the second portion of the interconnect, applying a dielectric layer to the second side of the substrate and the second portion of the interconnect, and exposing a surface of the second portion of the interconnect without photolithography.

    The term “microfeature workpiece” is used throughout to include substrates upon which and/or in which microelectronic devices, micromechanical devices, data storage elements, optics, and other features are fabricated. For example, microfeature workpieces can be semiconductor wafers, glass substrates, dielectric substrates, or many other types of substrates. Many features on such microfeature workpieces have critical dimensions less than or equal to 1 μm, and in many applications the critical dimensions of the smaller features are less than 0.25 μm or even less than 0.1 μm. Where the context permits, singular or plural terms may also include the plural or singular term, respectively. Moreover, unless the word “or” is expressly limited to mean only a single item exclusive from other items in reference to a list of at least two items, then the use of “or” in such a list is to be interpreted as including (a) any single item in the list, (b) all of the items in the list, or (c) any combination of the items in the list. Additionally, the term “comprising” is used throughout to mean including at least the recited feature(s) such that any greater number of the same features and/or types of other features and components are not precluded.
  • B. Embodiments of Methods for Forming Interconnects in Microfeature Workpieces
  • [0031]
    FIGS. 1A-1I illustrate stages of a method for forming interconnects in a microfeature workpiece 100 in accordance with one embodiment of the invention. FIG. 1A, for example, is a schematic side cross-sectional view of a portion of the workpiece 100 at an intermediate stage after partially forming a plurality of interconnects 140. The workpiece 100 can include a substrate 110 and a plurality of microelectronic dies 120 formed in and/or on the substrate 110. The substrate 110 has a first side 112 and a second side 114 opposite the first side 112. The substrate 110 is generally a semiconductor wafer, and the dies 120 are arranged in a die pattern on the wafer. The individual dies 120 include integrated circuitry 122 (shown schematically) and a plurality of terminals 124 (e.g., bond-pads) electrically coupled to the integrated circuitry 122. The terminals 124 shown in FIG. 1A are external features at the first side 112 of the substrate 110. In other embodiments, however, the terminals 124 can be internal features that are embedded at an intermediate depth within the substrate 110. Moreover, in additional embodiments, the dies 120 can have different features to perform different functions. For example, the individual dies may further include an image sensor (e.g., CMOS image sensor or CCD image sensor) for capturing pictures or other images in the visible spectrum, or detecting radiation in other spectrums (e.g., IR or UV ranges).
  • [0032]
    In previous processing steps, a first dielectric layer 130 was applied to the first side 112 of the substrate 110, and the interconnects 140 were partially formed in the workpiece 100. The first dielectric layer 130 can be a polyimide material or other suitable nonconductive materials. For example, the first dielectric layer 130 can be parylene, a low temperature chemical vapor deposition (low temperature CVD) material such as silicon nitride (Si3N4), silicon oxide (SiO2), and/or other suitable materials. The foregoing list of dielectric materials is not exhaustive. The conductive interconnects 140 extend from the first dielectric layer 130 to an intermediate depth in the substrate 110. As described in greater detail below with regard to FIG. 1B, the conductive interconnects 140 can include several layers of conductive material that are electrically coupled to corresponding terminals 124. Suitable methods for forming the portion of the interconnects 140 illustrated in FIG. 1A are disclosed in U.S. patent application Ser. Nos. 10/713,878; 10/867,352; 10/879,398; 11/027,443; 11/056,211; 11/169,546; 11/217,877; and 11/218,243, which are incorporated herein by reference. After partially forming the interconnects 140, the workpiece 100 can optionally be attached to a support member 190 with an adhesive 192 to provide rigidity to the workpiece 100 during subsequent processing steps.
  • [0033]
    FIG. 1B is a schematic side cross-sectional view of the area 1B shown in FIG. 1A with the workpiece 100 flipped over. The workpiece 100 includes an interconnect hole 180 extending from the terminal 114 to an intermediate depth in the substrate 110, a second dielectric layer 132 in the interconnect hole 180, and a vent hole 182 extending from the interconnect hole 180 to the second side 114 of the substrate 110. The second dielectric layer 132 electrically insulates components in the substrate 110 from the interconnect 140. The second dielectric layer 132 can be an ALD (atomic layer deposition) aluminum oxide material applied using a suitable deposition process or another suitable low temperature CVD oxide. In another embodiment, the second dielectric layer 132 can include a silane-based and/or an aluminum-based oxide material. In still further embodiments, the second dielectric layer 132 can include other suitable dielectric materials.
  • [0034]
    The illustrated interconnect 140 is formed in the interconnect hole 180 and has a first end portion 142 at the first dielectric layer 130 and a second end portion 144 at an intermediate depth in the substrate 110. The illustrated interconnect 140 includes a diffusion barrier layer 150 deposited over the second dielectric layer 132 in the hole 180, a seed layer 152 formed over the barrier layer 150 in the hole 180, a conductive layer 154 deposited over the seed layer 152 in the hole 180, and a conductive fill material 152 formed over the conductive layer 154 in the hole 180. The diffusion barrier layer 150 can be a layer of tantalum that is deposited onto the workpiece 100 using physical vapor deposition (PVD) and has a thickness of approximately 150 Angstroms. In other embodiments, the barrier layer 150 may be deposited onto the workpiece 100 using other vapor deposition processes, such as CVD, and/or may have a different thickness. In either case, the barrier layer 150 is not limited to tantalum, but rather may be composed of tungsten or other suitable materials that help contain the conductive fill material 156 in the interconnect hole 180.
  • [0035]
    The seed layer 152 can be deposited using vapor deposition techniques, such as PVD, CVD, atomic layer deposition, and/or plating. The seed layer 152 can be composed of Cu or other suitable materials. The thickness of the seed layer 152 may be about 2000 Angstroms, but could be more or less depending on the depth and aspect ratio of the hole 180. The conductive layer 154 can be Cu that is deposited onto the seed layer 152 in an electroless plating operation, electroplating operation, or another suitable method. The thickness of the conductive layer 154 can be about 1 micron, however, in other embodiments the conductive layer 154 can have a different thickness and/or include other suitable materials. In additional embodiments, the workpiece 100 may include a second conductive layer (not shown) that is deposited over the conductive layer 154 in the hole 180. The second conductive layer can be Ni or other suitable materials that function as a wetting agent for facilitating deposition of subsequent materials into the hole 180.
  • [0036]
    The conductive fill material 156 can include Cu, Ni, Co, Ag, Au, SnAgCu solder, AuSn solder, a solder having a different composition, or other suitable materials or alloys of materials having the desired conductivity. The conductive fill material 156 may be deposited into the hole 180 using plating processes, solder wave processes, screen printing processes, reflow processes, vapor deposition processes, or other suitable techniques. In other embodiments, the interconnects may have a different structure. For example, the interconnects may have additional layers in lieu of or in addition to the layers described above.
  • [0037]
    FIG. 1C is a schematic side cross-sectional view of the portion of the workpiece 100 after thinning the substrate 110 from the second side 114. The substrate 110 can be thinned by grinding, dry etching, chemical etching, chemical polishing, chemical-mechanical polishing, or other suitable processes. The thinning process may also remove a section of the second end portion 114 of the interconnect 140. For example, in one embodiment, the initial thickness of the substrate 110 is approximately 750 microns and the interconnect 140 extends to an intermediate depth of approximately 150 microns in the substrate 110, and the post-thinning thickness T of the substrate 110 is approximately 140 microns. These thicknesses can be different in other embodiments. After thinning the workpiece 100, the illustrated interconnect 140 includes an exposed surface 146 at the second end portion 144.
  • [0038]
    FIG. 1D is a schematic side cross-sectional view of the portion of the workpiece 100 after selectively removing additional material from the second side 114 of the substrate 110 so that the interconnect 140 projects from the substrate 110. The additional material can be removed via a plasma etch with SF6 or another suitable etchant that is selective to silicon. Alternatively, the additional material can be removed with other processes. In either case, after thinning the substrate 110, the second end portion 144 of the interconnect 140 projects a first distance D1 from the second side of the substrate 110. In several embodiments, the first distance D1 is between approximately 5 and 10 microns, although the first distance D1 can be less than 5 microns or more than 10 microns in other embodiments. The first distance D1 is selected based on the subsequent processing and application requirements.
  • [0039]
    FIG. 1E is a schematic side cross-sectional view of the area 1E shown in FIG. 1D after forming a recess 158 in the second end portion 144 of the interconnect 140. In the illustrated embodiment, the recess 158 is formed by removing a portion of the conductive fill material 156 from the interconnect 140. The conductive fill material 156 can be removed by a wet etch process with an etchant that is selective to the conductive fill material 156 and, consequently, removes the conductive fill material 156 at a faster rate than the seed and/or conductive layers 152 and/or 154. The illustrated recess 158 extends from the surface 146 of the interconnect 140 to a surface 157 of the conductive fill material 156, and has a depth D2 less than the first distance D1. The depth D2 of the recess 158 is selected based on the subsequent processing and application requirements. In other embodiments, such as the embodiments described below with reference to FIGS. 2A-3C, the interconnects may not include a recess in the second end portion 144.
  • [0040]
    FIG. 1F is a schematic side cross-sectional view of the portion of the workpiece 100 after forming a dielectric structure 170 across the second side 114 of the substrate 110 and the second end portion 144 of the interconnect 140. The illustrated dielectric structure 170 includes a first dielectric layer 172 and a second dielectric layer 174 deposited on the first dielectric layer 172. The first dielectric layer 172 can be parylene HT and have a thickness of approximately 0.5 micron. In other embodiments, other dielectric materials can be used and/or have different thicknesses. The second dielectric layer 174 can be an oxide such as silicon oxide (SiO2) and/or other suitable materials that are deposited by chemical vapor deposition and/or other suitable processes. In additional embodiments, the dielectric structure 170 can include a different number of layers.
  • [0041]
    FIG. 1G is a schematic side cross-sectional view of the portion of the workpiece 100 after removing sections of the interconnect 140 and the dielectric structure 170. The sections of the interconnect 140 and the dielectric structure 170 can be removed by grinding, dry etching, chemical etching, chemical polishing, chemical-mechanical polishing, or other suitable processes. In the illustrated embodiment, the workpiece 100 is polished to remove portions of the second dielectric layer 132, the barrier layer 150, the seed layer 152, the conductive layer 154, the first dielectric layer 172, and the second dielectric layer 174. The volume of material removed is selected so that (a) the recess 158 in the interconnect 140 has a desired depth D3, and (b) the interconnect 140 projects a desired distance D4 from an exterior surface 175 of the dielectric structure 170. In other embodiments, such as the embodiment described below with reference to FIGS. 3A-3C, the interconnect may not project from the exterior surface 175 of the dielectric structure 170. In either case, the interconnect 140 intersects a plane defined by the dielectric structure 170.
  • [0042]
    FIG. 1H is a schematic side cross-sectional view of the portion of the workpiece 100 after removing the section of the first dielectric layer 172 from the recess 158 in the interconnect 140. The section of the first dielectric layer 172 can be removed from the recess 158 by a plasma etching process (e.g., O2 plasma) or another suitable method that selectively removes the first dielectric layer 172 without significantly effecting the dielectric structure 170 formed on the substrate 110.
  • [0043]
    FIG. 1I is a schematic side cross-sectional view of the portion of the workpiece 100 after forming a conductive member 160 on the second end portion 144 of the interconnect 140. The illustrated conductive member 160 is a cap disposed in the recess 158 and extending over the barrier layer 150, the seed layer 152, and the conductive layer 154. The cap projects a desired distance D5 from the substrate 110 and forms an external contact for connection to an external device. The conductive member 160 can be electrolessly plated onto the second end portion 144 of the interconnect 140 or formed using other suitable processes. The conductive member 160 can include Ni or other suitable conductive materials. In other embodiments, the interconnect 140 may not include the conductive member 160. For example, the second end portion 144 of the interconnects 140 can be attached directly to an external device, or a conductive coupler (e.g., a solder ball) can be attached directly to the second end portion 144.
  • [0044]
    One feature of the method illustrated in FIGS. 1A-1I is that the interconnect 140 projects from the substrate 110. As a result, the section of the dielectric structure 170 covering the interconnect 140 can be removed by a simple polishing process without exposing the backside of the substrate 110. The resulting exposed surface 146 on the interconnect 140 may form an external contact to which an external device can be attached. Alternatively, the conductive member 160 can be disposed on the exposed surface 146 and form the external contact. In either case, an advantage of this feature is that the illustrated method does not require expensive and time-consuming photolithography processes to form external contacts on the backside of the workpiece 100.
  • [0045]
    Another advantage of the method illustrated in FIGS. 1A-1I is that the interconnect 140 can be sized to project a desired distance from the external surface 175 of the dielectric structure 170. The distance can be selected based on the application requirements for the die 110. For example, in applications in which the die 110 is stacked on another die, the distance may be selected to provide a desired gap between the two dies.

    FIGS. 2A-2C illustrate stages in a method for forming interconnects in a microfeature workpiece 200 in accordance with another embodiment of the invention.
