Breakthrough Technology Wins Important Industry Award
Since its market introduction four months ago, Henkel Electronic Materials’ LOCTITE ABLESTIK CDF 200P pre-cut conductive die attach film has enjoyed broad market success in a very short amount of time. Now, the technology breakthrough has been further validated by its recent win of a Global Technology Award.
“Device manufacturers around the world are quickly realizing the huge design and process advantages Henkel’s conductive die attach film can deliver,” says Shashi Gupta, Henkel Director of Global Marketing for Conductive Film. “Winning this award is very gratifying and further proof that LOCTITE ABLESTIK CDF 200P is a significant advancement for the semiconductor packaging market.”
Henkel’s LOCTITE ABLESTIK CDF 200P is a pre-cut conductive die attach film that offers device design and processing advantages over that of paste-based die attach mediums. The material eliminates the fillet associated with die attach pastes, thereby offering a tighter die to pad clearance and enabling more die and more functionality per package. Proven on a wide range of die sizes (0.2mm x 0.2mm to 5.0mm x 5.0mm) and thicknesses down to 50µm, LOCTITE ABLESTIK CDF 200P is enabling package designs not possible with alternative die attach materials.
The Global Technology Award, sponsored by Global SMT Packaging Magazine, was presented to Henkel at a special ceremonylast month at the SMTA International event in Orlando, Florida. The program, in existence since 2005, recognizes new innovations that have had or will have a significant impact on the assembly and packaging markets.
“The quick market acceptance of LOCTITE ABLESTIK CDF 200P has been very satisfying, but not surprising,” notes Gupta. “This ground-breaking material has been in development for some time and has been thoroughly evaluated and tested in-process; we expected it to have broad appeal and widespread implementation. Henkel is honored that Global SMT Packaging magazine has recognized the material’s significance by awarding LOCTITE ABLESTIK CDF 200P with a 2012 Global Technology Award.”
