The mold has two opposing side walls; a bottom wall; a front wall; a top side with an opening through which the block can be removed from the mold; a cover, and a rear side through which liquid, such as concrete, can be poured into the mold. Extending from the two side walls are a pair of trunnions about which the mold is rotatable, such that when the mold is suspended by the trunnions and the mold is empty, gravity rotates the mold from a block-removal orientation in which the top side faces upwards to a mold-filling orientation in which the rear side faces upwards. The trunnions are also positioned such that when the mold is filled with the liquid, gravity rotates the mold from the mold-filling orientation to the block-removal orientation.

  • Publication number: 20130113091
    Abstract: A method of packaging a semiconductor die includes the use of an embedded ground plane or drop-in embedded unit. The embedded unit is a single, stand-alone unit with at least one cavity. The embedded unit is placed on and within an encapsulation area of a process mounting surface. The embedded unit may have different sizes and shapes and a number of different cavities that can be placed in a predetermined position on a substrate, panel or tape during processing of semiconductor dies that are embedded into redistributed chip package (RCP) or wafer level package (WFL) panels. The embedded unit provides the functionality and design flexibility to run a number of embedded units and semiconductor dies or components having different sizes and dimensions in a single processing panel or batch and reduces die drift, movement or skew during encapsulation and post-encapsulation cure.
