  • Patent number: 8349652
    Abstract: There is provided a three-dimensional integrated circuit manufacturing method for temporarily attaching a chip to a transcription substrate, and securely detaching the chip from the transcription substrate when the chip is transferred to a supporting substrate. When a chip is temporarily attached to a transcription substrate, by evaporating a liquid existing between the chip and the transcription substrate, the solids of the chip and the transcription substrate can be attached to each other. Accordingly, the chip can be temporarily attached to the transcription substrate so as not to be deviated from its own position. Further, by setting adhesive strength between the chip and a supporting substrate to be higher than that between the chip and the transcription substrate, the chip can be securely detached from the transcription substrate when the chip is transferred from the transcription substrate to the supporting substrate.
