High-density three-dimensional (3-D) packaging technology for a charge coupled device (CCD) micro-camera visual inspection system module has been developed by applying high-density interconnection stacked unit modules. The stacked unit modules have fine-pitch flip-chip interconnections within Cu-column-based solder bumps and high-aspect-ratio Cu sidewall footprints for vertical interconnections. Cu-column-based solder bump design and underfill encapsulation resin characteristics were optimized to reduce the strain in the bump so as to achieve fine-pitch flip-chip interconnection with high-reliability. High-aspect-ratio Cu sidewall footprints were realized by the Cu-filled stacked vias at the edge of the substrate. High-precision distribution of sidewall footprints was achieved by laminating the multiple stacked unit substrates simultaneously. The fabricated high-density 3-D packaging module has operated satisfactorily as the CCD imaging data transmission circuit. The technology was confirmed to be effective for incorporating many large scale integrated (LSI) devices of different sizes at far higher packaging density than it is possible to attain using conventional technology. This paper describes the high-density 3-D packaging technology which enables all of the CCD imaging data transmission circuit devices to be packaged into the restricted space of the CCD micro-camera visual inspection system interior.
