Semiconductor and Burn-in
Chip Carriers and Interposers use printed wiring material to make the final connection between semiconductor devices and multilayer PWBs. To match the expansion of low in-plane chip devices, Arlon has a suite of high glass transition temperature, low CTE laminates manufactured with either non-woven aramid reinforcement or woven Kevlar® to closely match silicon CTEs as low as 5-7 ppm/⁰C.
Burn-in test equipment uses elevated voltages, temperatures, and power cycling to evaluate high power chips, boards, or products. The burn-in process tests the quality of the semiconductor device before it is incorporated into a finished device, ensuring that an IC chip with a latent defect is weeded out. Arlon’s Polyimide is the laminate of choice for long lasting, durable, and dependable under high heating conditions during this operation.
