Abstract:

Higher functionality, higher performance and higher reliability with smaller real estate are the mantras of any electronic device and the future guarantees more of the same. In order to achieve the requirements of these devices, designs must incorporate fine line and via pitch while maintain good circuitry adhesion at a smooth plating-resin interface to improve signal integrity. The Semi-Additive Process (SAP) is a production-proven method used on low dielectric loss tangent (Df) build-up materials that enables the manufacture of ultra-fine circuitry. (...)

This paper will discuss a new SAP process for low loss build-up materials with low desmear roughness (Ra= 40-100 nm) and excellent adhesion (610-680 gf/cm) at various processing conditions. Along with the process flow, the current work will also present results and a discussion regarding characterization on the morphology and composition of resin and/or metal plating surfaces using scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDX), surface roughness analysis, plating-resin adhesion evaluation from 90o peel tests...
