Gold dendrite simulation and growth kinetics


While dendritic growth for Ag, Sn and other metals provides jeopardy for packaged integrated circuits, we observed Au dendrites inside ceramic packages. The key factors controlling growth kinetics are a combination of bias and two residual chemicals: one hygroscopic component from the die attach material, and gold plating salts. We found dendritic growth… (More)
