Package Substrate

High-Density Circuit Substrate

The product is a package substrate that is used for the core semiconductors of mobile devices and PCs. It transmits electric signals between semiconductors and the main board, and protects expensive semiconductors from external stress. Compared with general substrates, as this substrate is a high-density circuit substrate containing more microcircuits, the assembly defects and incurred costs in directly bonding expensive semiconductors to the substrate can be reduced.

FCCSP(Flip Chip Chip Scale Package)

This is called Flip Chip Chip Scale Package (FCCSP) as semiconductor chips are upturned and connected to a board through a bump rather than wire bonding. It is mainly used for the application processor (AP) chips of mobile IT devices. Also Compared to WBCSP using Gold Wire, the process using Flip Chip can be applied to high-density semiconductors because the route of electrical signals is shorter, and larger input and output can be accommodated.

Substrate Type

1. EPS(Embedded Passive Substrate) & EDS(Embedded Die Substrate)

EPS/EDS is a substrate that can be mass-produced by embedding semiconductor passive elements and the IC, among other components, inside the board.
Decoupling capacitors are typically used to stabilize power supply voltage levels.
By embedding the IC inside the board, package size and thickness can be reduced.

2. ETS(Embedded Trace Substrate)

ETS is a circuit board whose circuit pattern is in the insulating material. ETS has a coreless structure, which allows for the implementation of microcircuits without the need for additional cost. Layer Down is performed much easier (4L → 3L). Also As the etching process is not affected by the pattern width, the circuit width can be precisely controlled.

WBCSP(Wire Bonding Chip Scale Package)

This is a semiconductor chip the size of which is more than 80% of that of the finished part. It is called WBCSP (Wire Bonding CSP) because a gold wire bonding method is applied to connect the semiconductor chip and the PCB. A gold wire is used to connect the chip and PCB, and multi-packaging is possible, which makes the product mainly applicable for memory chips. In particular, UTCSP (Ultra Thin CSP) products are made with a thickness of 0.13mm or thinner. With a high degree of freedom in the chip to PCB connection, multi-chip packaging is made possible, and better performance is realized compared with other products of the same thickness.

Key Core Technologies

1. Coreless RF-SiP

Signal characteristics can be enhanced by controlling Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) and the parasitic inductance by lowering the insulation thickness through the application of the coreless method. This serves as the basis for materializing thin substrates.

FCBGA(Flip Chip Ball Grid Array)

The product is a high-integration package substrate that is used to connect a high-integration semiconductor chip to a main board. It is a highly-integrated package board that improves electrical and thermal characteristics by connecting the semiconductor chip and package board with Flip Chip Bump. In addition, the high integration of the CPU board circuitry requires an increase in the number of board layers and fine matching between layers; at the same time, the ability to manufacture thin boards for slimming sets is required.
