We report experimental results on applying ink-jetting to dedicated system-in-package technologies. Special focus is on die-attach, vertical and horizontal interconnects. Our experiments on die attach experiments demonstrate that today we have still too high expenses to adapt materials, filler size and viscosity. The filling experiments of 150μm diameter vertical through encapsulant vias for package-on-package applications with ink-jetting showed void formation, which requires still smaller ink jet drops in the future. For formation of horizontal interconnects, e.g. for rerouting, by ink-jetting we observe that a functionalization of the surfaces e.g. with plasma or sulfur acid is required. Based on these project results and experience we suggest a roadmap for ink-jetting using parallel nozzles and single nozzles.
