The Stacked CSP (SCSP) family leverages Amkor's industry leading ChipArray® Ball Grid Array (CABGA) manufacturing capabilities. This broad high volume infrastructure enables the rapid deployment of advances in die stacking technology across multiple products and factories to achieve lowest total cost requirements.
Stacked CSP technology enables the stacking of a wide range of different semiconductor devices to deliver the high level of silicon integration and area efficiency required in portable multi-media products.
Stacked CSP utilizes high density thin core substrates, advanced materials (ie: thin film die attach adhesive, fine filler epoxy mold compound), along with leading-edge wafer thinning, die attach, wire bonding and molding capabilities to stack multiple devices in a conventional fine pitch BGA (FBGA) surface mount component. These advanced assembly capabilities in combination with Amkor's expertise in design and test, enable stacks up to 16 active devices while optimizing yield and mounted height requirements.
Many customers have relied on Amkor to solve their highest density and most complex device stack combinations. As a result, Amkor has established industry leadership in stacking pure memory, mixed signal, and logic + memory devices, including NAND, NOR and DRAM memory, digital base band or applications processors + high density flash or mobile DRAM devices. Designers are looking to Stacked CSP technologies to achieve a high level of integration, along with size and cost reductions in future chip set combinations.
Portable multi-media devices including cell phones, digital cameras, PDAs, audio players and mobile gaming employ SCSP solutions to address a range of design requirements, including:
