Abstract: A semiconductor device may include a semiconductor substrate, an insulator film covering a part of an upper surface of the substrate, and a gate electrode opposing the upper surface via the insulator film. In the semiconductor substrate, a drift layer extending through a body layer to the upper surface opposes the gate electrode via the insulator film. The insulator film extends from the upper surface of the semiconductor substrate to an upper surface of the gate electrode by passing between the gate electrode and an upper electrode, and defines an opening at the upper surface of the gate electrode. In a first region being a set of straight lines where each line extends through an opposing surface of the drift layer that opposes the gate electrode perpendicularly to the opposing surface, the insulator film does not exist on the upper surface of the gate electrode.

Abstract: An anisotropic conductive film includes an insulating adhesive layer and conductive particles disposed thereon. Arrangement axes of the conductive particles having a particle pitch extend in a widthwise direction of the film, and the axes are sequentially arranged with an axis pitch in a lengthwise direction of the film. The particle pitch, axis pitch of the axes, and an angle ? of the axes relative the widthwise direction of the film are determined according to external shapes of terminals so 3 to 40 conductive particles are present on each terminal when a terminal arrangement region of an electronic component is superimposed on the film so a lengthwise direction of each terminal is aligned with the widthwise direction of the film. By using the film, stable connection reliability is obtained and an excessive increase in the density of the conductive particles is suppressed even in the connection of fine pitches.
