A 3-D packaging technology is developed for stacked dynamic random access memory (DRAM) with through-silicon vias (TSVs). Eight different dry etchers were evaluated for deep Si etching. Highly doped poly-Si TSVs were used for vertical traces inside silicon and interconnection between DRAM chips to realize a DRAM-compatible process. Through optimization of process conditions and layout design, a fast poly-Si filling has been obtained. The entire packaging was carried out at the wafer level by using smart chip connection with feedthrough interposer (FTI) technology. A new bump and wiring structure for the FTI has also been developed for fine-pitch and low-cost bonding. Normal operation during DRAM read/write was confirmed on a 512-Mb DRAM with TSVs, with an I/F chip as a memory controller. Simulation and measurement of the transfer function of the FTI wiring showed a 3-Gb/s/pin data transfer capability.
