Master Bond has formulated a line of one component epoxy underfill compositions which feature rapid cures at moderately elevated temperatures and offer excellent underfill-to-die passivation as well as outstanding adhesion to a variety of substrates. They exhibit remarkably fast cures of 25-30 minutes at 250°F or as little as 10-15 minutes at 300°F. Their shelf life at ambient temperatures is a minimum of 3 months and a maximum of 6 months. These new underfills are 100% reactive and do not contain any volatiles.
Features of One Component Epoxy Underfill Compounds
The new Master Bond line of epoxy underfills contains low viscosity, highly flowable compounds that produce uniform void-free epoxy layers for enhancing the protection of the active die surfaces and improve stress distribution away from solder interconnects. Master Bond, furthermore, has formulated no flow fluxing underfill whose use greatly simplifies conventional flip chip assemblies, some of which can be fully cured during standard reflux cycles in-line processing. Both highly insulative and thermally conductive compounds are available. They all feature superior resistance to thermal temperature cycling as well as to mechanical shock and vibration.
