The use of CSPs, Direct Flip Chip Attach and high density substrate should bring tremendous benefits for electronic devices in terms of performance, speed, weight, real estate and cost saving. Several CSPs are already applied for actual mobile electronic devices. Among these CSPs, Super CSP is a newly developed CSP which processed all packaging processes in a wafer form. MOST (Micro Spring On Silicon Technology) is another wafer level packaging technology which has many micro springs on a wafer for board attach. The micro springs were formed by existing wire bonding technology which uses specially designed tool motion. These two CSPs are produced by common rerouting technology with flip chip bumping, i.e. thin film and plating technologies. The structures and manufacturing processes are described and reliability of the CSPs and bumps on wafers are proved as satisfactory for actual application. High density substrates and packages are another important parts for high performance devices and modules. Newly developed high density buildup substrate using polymer coated copper sheets and related technologies such as via filling with copper plating and pre-soldering technology for flip chip attach are described. The reliability of the substrate and flip chip bonding technology are also confirmed.
