Empower custom designs and enhance applications
Designers looking to give their products a market edge can leverage some of the natural advantages of working at the bare die level. A bare die product is simply a package-free semiconductor and allows the system designer to use the full potential of the bare die without incurring the penalties such as degraded electrical performance or temperature limitations that can result from using the product in a standard package format. Bare die form products also allows more efficient use of limited space.
Bare Die Benefits
- Improve electrical efficiency - Reducing path lengths by removing extra package interconnect can reduce capacitance and lower inductance
- Reduced space volume envelope - Removing heat sinks and package surround by direct die attached to substrate gains highest power density with lowest volume area and height profile
- Ruggedisation - Bare die can add reliable operating capability in harsh environments. Direct die attach and wirebond to substrate eliminates exposed weak spots in package interconnect caused by temperature excursions. Lowest contact area to substrate = lowest CTE. Direct die attach and wirebond also ruggedises against high levels of vibration and shock
- Thermal Uprating - Utilise the true maximum rated allowable junction temperatures of the die without package temperature limitation
- Add Integration - Go to bare die form to create and add extra functionality into unusual footprints or space constrained systems
