Silver Sinter Paste for SiC Bonding with Improved Mechanical Properties

Authors: Wolfgang Schmitt, Ly May Chew

Thermo-mechanical tension might not be reduced easily by the interconnection materials, if the Young’s modulus of the material itself is high. A brittle die attach material might leads to crack and delamination due to the bending of the package caused by the CTE mismatch of the used materials. Consequently, a degradation of thermal conductivity and a reduced life time of the components occurred, particularly on the components which are operated at above 175°C. Silver sinter material with a reduced Young’s modulu as well as an adjusted CTE is desired to avoid crack and delamination.

This study shows the development of a silver sinter paste with improved mechanical properties. By adding non silver particles to the sinter paste, the Young’s modulus became independent of process parameters and became stable against further thermal exposure.
