Abstract

Anisotropic conductive film (ACF) which consists of an adhesive epoxy matrix and randomly distributed conductive particles are widely used as the connection material for electronic devices with high I/O counts. However, for the semiconductor industry the reliability of the ACF is still a major concern due to a lack of experimental reliability data. This paper reports an investigation into the moisture effects on the reliability of ACF interconnections in the flip-chip-on-flex (FCOF) applications. A macro-micro 3D finite element modeling technique was used in order to make the multi-length-scale modeling of the ACF flip chip possible. The purposes of this modeling work was to understand the role that moisture plays in the failure of ACF flip chips, and to look into the influence of physical properties and geometric characteristics, such as the coefficient of the moisture expansion (CME), Young's modulus of the adhesive matrix and the bump height on the reliability of the ACF interconnections in a humid environment. Simulation results suggest that moisture-induced swelling of the adhesive matrix is the major cause of the ACF joint opening. Modeling results are consistent with the findings in the experimental work.
