  • Thermo-mechanical reliability considerations with dynamic voltage/frequency scaling in microprocessor applications

    With each advancing generation of process technology, the CPU power continues to rise, creating additional issues for thermal/mechanical packaging design. A common theme in next-generation CPU offerings will be the use of dynamic voltage and frequency scaling (DVFS) to manage the chip power during operation. With a DVFS policy, it becomes all the more important to study the potential impacts of imposed temporal variation in power on the thermo- mechanical reliability. In this study, we demonstrate a system identification approach for a practical CPU application and exemplify the trade-offs involved in creating a DVFS policy that is satisfactory to both thermal/mechanical reliability engineers and CPU design teams.

  • Design and optimization of thermal-mechanical reliability of a TSV 3D Packaged Thermal Wind Sensor

    Thermal wind sensor has been used to measure wind speed and direction in high temperature due to its principle. In this paper, a novel structure is proposed. It consists of a silicon sensing substrate and a ceramic chip for packaging, in which the sensing chip with through silicon vias (TSV) is Cu-Sn eutectic bonded to the ceramic. This paper focuses on the thermal-mechanical reliability of the novel structure. In order to reduce the thermal stress generated by the package, four approaches of bonding ring between the silicon substrate and ceramic are taken into consideration. In addition, different grooves designed in silicon substrate are simulated and optimized to release the thermal stress generated by the package. It turns out that right angle shape of bonding ring decreases the shear stress by at most 61 % compared with any other shape. There is a reduction in shear stress of the structure with the depth of 150um by about 6% than without groove.

  • Research on mechanical reliability of a permanent magnetic actuator for a 126kV vacuum circuit breaker

    The objective of this paper is to investigate mechanical reliability of a permanent magnetic actuator (PMA) for a 126kV vacuum circuit breaker. Impact characteristics and fatigue life of the collision components in actuator were analyzed by experiment and simulation. 3D finite element model of impact components were built up. Dynamic impact force between armature and static magnetic conductive yoke were calculated by explicit method. It was also verified by PVDF piezoelectric sensors in the experiments in opening operation. Based on the impact simulation and operating test results, failure mode and fatigue life of the static magnetic conductive yoke and armature were calculated. Experiment results showed that maximum impact force in opening and closing operations of PMA were 892kN and 198kN. Simulation results indicated that the maximum stress in impact process is 871kN, which is verified by experiments. In addition, fatigue mode of impact component was low-cycle crack fatigue. The outside part and inside part of opening static magnetic conductive yoke had appeared failure after 3990 and 3027 operations respectively by using oil damper. Their mechanical lives met the requirement of IEC standard. When the impact velocity was lower than 1.3m/s, the fatigue lives of impact components for opening could meet the IEC standard requirement of class M1.

  • TSV Stress-Aware Full-Chip Mechanical Reliability Analysis and Optimization for 3-D IC

    In this paper, we propose an efficient and accurate full-chip thermomechanical stress and reliability analysis tool and design optimization methodology to alleviate mechanical reliability issues in 3-D integrated circuits (ICs). First, we analyze detailed thermomechanical stress induced by through-silicon vias in conjunction with various associated structures such as landing pad and dielectric liner. Then, we explore and validate the linear superposition principle of stress tensors and demonstrate the accuracy of this method against detailed finite element analysis simulations. Next, we apply this linear superposition method to full-chip stress simulation and a reliability metric named the von Mises yield criterion. Finally, we propose a design optimization methodology to mitigate the mechanical reliability problems in 3-D ICs. Our numerical experimental results demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed methodology.

  • Study on thermo-mechanical reliability of 3D stacked chip SiP based on cavity substrate

    In this paper, a novel 3D stacked chip SiP structure based on cavity substrate is proposed. For the structure of cavity substrate is asymmetric, the thermo- mechanical reliability issues of the 3D SiP structure are very important and necessary to be studied. When molding compound is injected into the 3D SiP structure, it contacts with other parts of the structure. Because Young's modulus of the molding compound varies with temperature during cooling process from molding temperature to room temperature and CTEs of different materials are mismatched, the effect of molding compound cooling process on the reliability of 3D SiP is necessary to be investigated. The thermo-mechanical reliability FEM simulation of the molding compound cooling process from molding temperature 125 °C to room temperature 25 °C is performed to study the warpage issue of the 3D package SiP. In order to conduct the molding compound cooling simulation correctly, Young's modulus of molding compound dependent on time and temperature is tested by using DMA. The simulation result shows that the deformation won't bring the warpage for the 3D SiP. Besides, the thermo- mechanical reliability FEM simulation of the 3D package module under thermal cycling (-40/125 °C) is evaluated to find out the stress and strain distribution of the 3D package module, the BGA and to predict the warpage, delamination, die cracking, solder joint cracking, excessive substrate deformation and cracking of the 3D package module. The simulation results indicate that the 3D package module has higher thermo-mechanical reliability.

  • Thermo-mechanical reliability analysis of package-on-package assembly

    Package on Package (PoP) is a packaging technology that one package is placed on top of another package to integrate different functionalities while still maintain same foot print size. The advantages of PoP are evident, but there are also some challenges with respect to packaging and Surface Mounting Technology (SMT). Due to the complex architecture of PoP, some reliability issues have been raised, reliability related to thermo mechanical issues are major challenges in the design of PoP. In this paper, package warpage and solder joint reliability during lead free reflow temperature, high temperature storage test and steady state temperature humidity test were investigated. After test, all components were electrically measured for continuity. The samples and their cross-sections were examined by scanning electron microscope (SEM). The intermetallic compound (IMC) thickness of solder/PCB interface and two interfaces of solder/substrate of top solder joints were measured. The results showed steady state temperature humidity test have no significant impact on mechanical reliability of PoP package. After high temperature storage test, the package emerge larger warpage and the thickness of IMC was grow comparatively large. It can be found that the thermal stress play an important role on the mechanical reliability of PoP Package. Finally, 3D finite element analysis (FEA) was performed, and the stress distribution under reflow process reflow temperature warpage was investigated. The results of this study can be used as a reference by original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) to estimate mechanical reliability of PoP Package.

  • Evaluation and Optimization of Thermo-Mechanical Reliability of a TSV-Based 3D MEMS

    This paper focuses on the thermo-mechanical reliability of a 3D-TSV MEMS in which cap layer and MEMS micro-structure layer is vertically interconnected and bonded by TSVs/micro-bumps and a sear ring. Geometrical parameters of the TSV structure and the seal ring are optimized first before the global model simulation. Smaller thickness of bottom TSV Cu and smaller opening size of silicon oxide layer are preferred in terms of thermo-mechanical reliability and electrical reliability. Quarter circular arc corner turning of radius 50μm decreases shear stress by at most 43.7% and peeling stress by at most 55.4% when compared with any other corner turning. In the end, the optimized structure parameters are introduced into the global model reliability simulation to verify the feasibility of the 3D-TSV MEMS.

  • Thermo-mechanical reliability of SAC leadfree alloys

    In this paper, thermo-mechanical reliability of four different low-silver SnAgCu (SAC) lead free alloys is investigated in a harsh thermal environment of -55 to 125°C. Four configuration of test boards were assembled all having identical 100 I/O, 0.8mm pitch chip array ball grid array (CABGA) packages. Previous researchers have demonstrated the superior performance of low-silver leadfree alloys in shock and vibration. The presented study focuses on understanding the low-silver alloys reliability and the effect of dopants for prolonged operation under thermo-mechanical stresses in harsh environments. A direct comparison has been made between the low-silver alloys with and without dopants, keeping the package architecture and board assembly construction identical amongst the board assemblies tested. Solder alloys studied include SAC105, Sn0307, SACX, and SACX+. Accelerated test data has been gathered under thermal cycling from -55 to 125°C with ten minute dwells at each extreme. Weibull distributions have been created for all four-alloys and failure modes studied with cross-sections.
