Partitioning Lid Exposure by FAM


The compartment shielding shows in Figure 1A is resorting to the metal wall for shielding

between or among devices. The laser drill is performed to form the compartment opening,

and the opening is filled by conductive material as metal wall to connect it with the ground

pad on substrate.

This invention in Figure 1B, however, proposed to attach the pre-determined compartment

shield, namely Lid on the substrate to partition the devices of a package. It has the advantages

to reduce the package profile since using pre-determined compartment shield, the process

flow is therefore simplified by getting rid of the laser drilling followed by material filling

processes, and is less costly by using Lid compared to conductive material

The Lid as compartment shield is adhered to the substrate between the flip chip and wire

bond package, which is accomplished through the SMT (surface mount technology) and Lid

attach processes as shown in Figure 2A.

Partitioning Lid Exposure by FAM

The structure is subjected to molding by means of FAM (Film-Assisted Molding) system,

whereby the Lid top surface is exposed after molding as illustrated in Figure 2B.
