Welcome to Semiconductor Packaging Manufacturing, where we discuss the various stages of semiconductor package manufacturing, including sort, assembly, and final test. In addition, we will also describe how to select, build, and test the packages with the die and other components to ensure the quality of the package and total assembly performance. We will also discuss the role of Process Control Systems in semiconductor manufacturing as they relate to quality testing. Specifically, we will explore how Process Control Systems can help identify and correct process problems that cause variation and quality issues. Finally, we also demonstrate how to use control charts to monitor the process performance. These can assist in decision-making, specifically when to take action to improve the process.

In this module you will have an opportunity to view a lecture video by Principal Engineer, Dr. Mitul Modi from Intel as he discusses process flows for different types of semiconductor packages. He will explain how most process flows consist of three basic steps: sort, assembly, and final test. You will learn the details of how these steps vary depending on the package type. Mitul will give examples of process flows for BGA, LGA, 3D stacked LGA, and Stacked Hybrid packages. He will also mention that there are many more possible scenarios for process flows in semiconductor packaging.

In this module you will have an opportunity to view a lecture video by Principal Engineer, Dr. Mitul Modi from Intel as he discusses the role and benefits of Process Control Systems (PCS) in semiconductor manufacturing. He will explain how PCS can detect and correct process problems that cause variation and quality issues. He will also define the concepts of targets, variation, common and special causes, control limits, and stability. Mitul will demonstrate how to use control charts to monitor the process performance and to decide when to take action to improve the process.

In conclusion of Introduction to Semiconductor Packaging, we would like to summarize the main takeaways. We started by sharing various aspects of nanoelectronics, transistor action, reliability, and customer ease of use. Then, we explored how Moore’s Law and market use conditions affect the packages' reliability needs and the materials/design choices. At the end, we saw how the common footprint of a motherboard or socket determines a package's substrate level interconnect. Thank you for joining us.
