Measurement of Alpha Particle Radioactivtiy in IC Device Packages

Abstract

Alpha particle radioactivity in package materials has been shown to cause soft errors in semiconductor devices. The particles are emitted by uranium and thorium decay sequence radioactive isotopes present as trace impurities in the raw materials used to make the package component parts. Chemical and radiation analys s techniques were correlated to alpha… (More)
