Two-high stacked Thin Small Outline Packages (TSOP) is one prominent example used commonly in DIMM modules. Stacked CSPs and other forms of overhanging, 3-D package assemblies are fast becoming more prevalent for workstation and server applications. This paper reviews the commonly used stacked package assemblies for DIMM modules and describes a new approach combining two dissimilar packages, a modified TSOP and a standard chip scale package (CSP) in a 3-D, overhanging package assembly.
The fabrication of the modified TSOP, called high thin small outline package (HTSOP) is described first. The assembly procedures for the 3-D stacking DIMM assembly, called Elevated Package Over CSP (EPOC) technology, is then discussed. Also included are the reliability results and thermal analysis and characteristics of this newly configured, high- capacity DIMM module assembly.
Key words: stacking, TSOP, CSP, memory module.
