  • Publication number: 20110309485
    Abstract: A method of fabricating a leadframe-based semiconductor package, and a semiconductor package formed thereby, are disclosed. The semiconductor package includes a leadframe and one or more semiconductor die affixed to a die paddle of the leadframe. The leadframe is formed with a plurality of electrical terminals that get surface mounted to a host PCB. The leadframe further includes one or more extended leads, at least one of which includes an electrically conductive island which gets surface mounted to the host PCB with the electrical terminals. The islands effectively increase the number terminals within the package without adding footprint to the package.

  • Patent number: 8022417
    Abstract: Methods of forming integrated circuit packages having an LED molded into the package, and the integrated circuit package formed thereby. An integrated circuit including one or more semiconductor die, passive components and an LED may be assembled on a panel. The one or more semiconductor die, passive components and LED may all then be encapsulated in a molding compound, and the integrated circuits then singularized to form individual integrated circuit packages. The integrated circuits are cut from the panel so that a portion of the lens of the LED is severed during the singularization process, and an end of the lens remaining within the package lies flush with an edge of the package to emit light outside of the package.

  • Publication number: 20110210446
    Abstract: A semiconductor device having a redistribution layer, and methods of forming same, are disclosed. After fabrication of semiconductor die on a wafer, a tape assembly is applied onto a surface of the wafer, in contact with the surfaces of each semiconductor die on the wafer. The tape assembly includes a backgrind tape as a base layer, and a film assembly adhered to the backgrind tape. The film assembly in turn includes an adhesive film on which is deposited a thin layer of conductive material. The redistribution layer pattern is traced into the tape assembly, using for example a laser. Thereafter, the unheated portions of the tape assembly may be removed, leaving the heated redistribution layer pattern on each semiconductor die.

  • Patent number: 7994647
    Abstract: A method of forming a semiconductor package with smooth edges, and a semiconductor package formed thereby is disclosed. In embodiments, after encapsulation, the semiconductor packages may be at least partially singulated from the panel by making one or more cuts through the panel to define one or more edges of the semiconductor package. The one or more edges may be smoothed by applying a laminate to the edges. The edges receiving the laminate may include any edge between a top and bottom surface of the package.

  • Publication number: 20110095440
    Abstract: A semiconductor package including a plurality of stacked semiconductor die, and methods of forming the semiconductor package, are disclosed. In order to ease wirebonding requirements on the controller die, the controller die may be mounted directly to the substrate in a flip chip arrangement requiring no wire bonds or footprint outside of the controller die. Thereafter, a spacer layer may be affixed to the substrate around the controller die to provide a level surface on which to mount one or more flash memory die. The spacer layer may be provided in a variety of different configurations.

  • Publication number: 20110024881
    Abstract: A semiconductor device including a semiconductor die in a die stack under-filled with a film. Once the semiconductor die are formed, they may be stacked and interconnected. The interconnection may leave a small space between semiconductor die in the die stack. This space is advantageously completely filled using a vapor deposition process where a coating is deposited as a vapor which flows over all surfaces of the die stack, including into the spaces between the die in the stack. The vapor then deposits on the surfaces between and around the die and forms a film which completely fills the spaces between the die in the die stack. The material used in the vapor deposition under-fill process may for example be a member of the parylene family of polymers, and in embodiments, may be parylene-N.
