China PCBA factory Underfill of Eternity EMS
What is Underfill?
Underfill is an epoxy material that fills gaps between a chip and its carrier or a finished package and the PCB substrate. Underfill protects electronic products from shock, drop, and vibration and reduces the strain on fragile solder connections caused by the difference in thermal expansion between the silicon chip and carrier (two unlike materials).
In capillary underfill applications, a precise volume of underfill material is dispensed along the side of a chip or package to flow underneath through capillary action, filling air gaps around solder balls that connect chip packages to the PCB or stacked chips in multi-chip packages. No-flow underfill materials, sometimes used for underfilling, are deposited on the substrate before a chip or package is attached and reflowed. Molded underfill is another approach that involves using resin to fill gaps between the chip and substrate.
Without underfill, the life expectancy of a product would be significantly reduced due to the cracking of interconnects.
The underfill encapsulation provides the following benefits to a flip chip assembly.
1. It provides mechanical protection by enhancing the mechanical bonding between the dies or die and distributes any mechanical stress throughout the assembly protecting the conductive balls/bumps.
2. It provides thermal protection by improving heat transfer from the dies to the substrate and provides better heat distribution relieving the conductive bumps/balls of thermal stress.
3. It also relieves mechanical stress from the bumps/balls caused by thermal expansion mismatch.
4. Overall it improves the function, reliability and durability of the flip chip assemblies.
