  • Publication number: 20200066692
    Abstract: Package devices (systems and methods for their manufacture) may have an integrated circuit (IC) chip mounted on a top surface of a package substrate of and IC package, and embedded in a mold compound formed onto the top surface. They may also have conductive elements mounted on the top surface of the package substrate, embedded in the mold compound, horizontally disposed at a first vertical sidewall of the package device, and having vertical contact pads exposed at the first vertical sidewall. Conductor material traces of the IC package may electrically couple contacts of the chip to the conductive elements. Traces of the IC package may also electrically couple contacts of the chip to bottom surface contacts of the IC package. The vertical contact pads provide a shorter signal path to another device having vertically mounted surface contacts or opposing contact pads, thus improving signaling to the other device.

  • Publication number: 20200068711
    Abstract: Systems and methods are provide to form one or more pads on at least one surface associated with a portion of a component, for example, a component associated with a surface-mounted device (SMD). Further, the systems and methods are directed to providing metal (for example, copper, Cu) layers on the surface of one or more terminations (for example, solder termination pads) of an electrical component. In one embodiment, the metal layers include metal termination pads that are fabricated on a carrier layer; components can be soldered to these termination pads, then the components with the metal pads can be debonded from the carrier layer. As such, the solder terminations of the components can be covered by the metal pads. The disclosed systems and methods can permit or otherwise facilitate a wider selection and easy availability of the components to be electrically and/or mechanically connected to semiconductor packages.

  • Publication number: 20200018939
    Abstract: A system and method of generating white light for a projection system in a compact form factor using laser diodes, a reflection system, and a phosphor target. Light emitted from the laser diodes can be directed towards a region of the phosphor target, where the phosphor target is excited and emits light in a desired spectrum in all directions. Some emitted light is collected by a collection lens. The emitted light collected by the collection lens can be combined with light from the original laser diodes to create white light for use in the projection system. Light emitted in a direction away from the collection lens can be redirected to the collection lens by the reflection system that employs a curved reflector on one side of the phosphor target and a flat reflector on the opposite side of the phosphor target.
