And then, demand for packaging equipment is stronger than expected. Plating is a deposition step that enables the copper metallization schemes in IC packages.

Lead times for sputtering equipment and other systems are stretching out, however. Unexpected spike in IC demand is spilling over into the packaging supply chain.

Spot shortages for some IC packages began showing up earlier this year, but the problem has been growing and spreading since then.

Supply imbalances reached a boiling point in the third and fourth quarters of this year, and it now appears that imfineon customers may encounter select shortages well into At the same time, Samsung is also jumping on QFN for its latest smartphones, according to multiple sources. This is starting to soften a little, but will peak again in IC demand was greater than expected cbipso customers required more IC packaging capacity.


Surprisingly, though, there is an acute shortage of more mature mm bumping capacity in the market.

Furthermore they claim the protocol is simple and non-proprietary. At about that time, copper suppliers began to shift more of their production from leadframes to connectors, causing lead times to stretch out.

In flip chip, tiny bumps or copper pillars are formed on a die. Even on the equipment side, such as chip bonders, we are having delivery issues.

Bumping shortages The current boom cycle took the industry by surprise in So in this round, not only is the supply constrained, but the demand is strong for a long sustainable time. They say a picture is worth a thousand words, so I will leave you with this link to a 24 second YouTube video someone loaded of one of her best races.

This will go down as a good year for the semiconductor industry, where new markets and innovation were both necessary and rewarded. Trending Articles Fundamental Shifts In This will go down as a good year for the semiconductor industry, where new markets and innovation were both necessary and rewarded. Leadframes using particular roughening treatments have suffered long lead times due to capacity shortages.


Equipment outlook Besides certain package types and leadframes, OSATs also worry about the delivery times of the equipment used to make IC packages.

Next-generation, high-density fan-out chi also are ramping up. Right now, the leadframe market is a mixed bag.

But needless to say, shortages impact the delivery schedules for packaging customers. Vias are defined by structuring the outer copper foils drilling or photolith.

She soon got a call from Track Houston. Knowledge Centers Entities, people and technologies explored Learn More.

And in DRAMssuppliers have been reluctant to add capacity despite rising demand. Comments won’t automatically be posted to your social media accounts unless you select to share. Leadframe woes To be sure, the leadframe business is undergoing some changes. Access to source code makes it attractive for custom applications, but gaps remain in the tool flow and in software.

While Chinese suppliers have ample capacity, the quality is sometimes sub-standard. Phil GarrouContributing Editor. Flip-chip is used for application processors, graphics chips and microprocessors.
