HsiaoYun Lo has filed for patents to protect the following inventions. This listing includes patent applications that are pending as well as patents that have already been granted by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).

  • Patent number: 11056419
    Abstract: A semiconductor device includes a through-substrate via extending from a frontside to a backside of a semiconductor substrate. The through-substrate via includes a concave or a convex portion adjacent to the backside of the semiconductor substrate. An isolation film is formed on the backside of the semiconductor substrate. A conductive layer includes a first portion formed on the concave or convex portion of the through substrate via and a second portion formed on the isolation film. A passivation layer partially covers the conductive layer.
    Type: Grant
    Filed: September 13, 2019
    Date of Patent: July 6, 2021
    Assignee: Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company, Ltd.
    Inventors: Yung-Chi Lin, Hsin-Yu Chen, Ming-Tsu Chung, HsiaoYun Lo, Hong-Ye Shih, Chia-Yin Chen, Ku-Feng Yang, Tsang-Jiuh Wu, Wen-Chih Chiou

  • Patent number: 9842823
    Abstract: A chip-stacking apparatus for stacking a chip on a substrate is provided. The chip-stacking apparatus includes a substrate support configured to carry the substrate and a transport device configured to dispose a chip to the substrate. The transport device includes a bond head including a bond base and an attaching element disposed on the bond base and configured to allow the chip to be attached thereon. The center area of the attaching element is higher than an edge area of the attaching element relative to the bond base.
