MacDermid Alpha to Present at IMAPS International Symposium on Microelectronics 2019

Reading time ( words)

MacDermid Alpha Electronics Solutions will be presenting during the IMAPS International Symposium on Microelectronics at the Hynes Memorial Convention Center in Boston, Massachusetts, held September 30–October 3, 2019.

Shaopeng Sun, R&D Chemist, will present "Nickel Via Fill Metallization" on October 1 at 5:15pm, Session 029. In his paper, Sun will explore the possibility of nickel via fill metallization by electrodeposition achieving similar bottom-up fill as copper chemistry. "It becomes critical for semiconductor manufacturers to find ways to improve interconnect reliability while reducing cost," said Shaopeng. "If nickel does not represent a significant penalty in the replacement of copper then the potential benefits of simplicity, cost reduction, and increased reliability would weigh in its favor."

Our Semiconductor Solutions Division is a global leader in high performance semiconductor chemistries and assembly materials that engages directly with OEMs, IDMs, wafer foundries, OSATs and tool suppliers to collaboratively develop solutions that meet the fast-paced semiconductor market demands.
