The plastic Quad Flat Package has evolved into a large, high pin count package, however higher costs and thermal dissipation requirements constitute the boundary conditions it must overcome to evolve as a viable high density package. The present mold com- pounds used as encapsulants have poor thermal con- ductivity and represent a large portion of the ther- mal resistance in the plastic package. Existing thermally enhanced plastic packages are prone to delamination, and command steep prices.
