As one of challenges, clip design for bonding area is becoming smaller and smaller to achieve die size requirement, better view inspection and efficient solder flux cleaning. However, with a small bonding area, there will be a concern on high thermal resistance during working condition, especially under a surge current, in which junction temperature may be higher than the melting temperature of soft solder, i.e. 298 °C, resulting in a potential concern of package reliability. Therefore, design… CONTINUE READING
