3D InCites Awards Program recognizes Henkel leadership in die attach and underfill materials development

Henkel semiconductor packaging innovations earn Material Supplier of the Year Award

Henkel today announced that it has earned the Material Supplier of the Year distinction from the 3D InCites community as part of its recent 3DInCites Awards program. The Henkel nomination highlighted the company’s launch of several groundbreaking products designed to tackle many challenges facing semiconductor package designers and manufacturers. Formulations that address today’s device complexities include robust underfills for leading-edge flip chip devices, versatile die attach film, and high thermal die attach pastes.

Among the new products Henkel’s global semiconductor team commercialized over the last year are

  • High-reliability die attach materials including a high-thermal (30 w/m-K), non-sintering paste; an ultra-high thermal (165 W/m-K) pressure-less sintering material; and a bill of materials (BOM) simplification die attach film that can be used for lead frame and laminate packages.
  • A novel capillary underfill material for advanced Si node flip chips that balances fast flow capabilities with high filler loading.

“We are honored to have been recognized by the 3D InCites judges and the voting public for our recent innovations,” said Henkel Global Market Segment Head for Semiconductor Packaging Materials Ramachandran Trichur.  “Our customers continue to push the boundaries of semiconductor packaging to increase performance, reduce size, and gain operational efficiencies. Semiconductor packaging materials are critical to enable these capabilities for the industry. I’m grateful that 3D InCites has helped illuminate the efforts of our global team in these significant areas of semiconductor packaging discovery.”

3D InCites is an online information resource focused on semiconductor advanced packaging and heterogeneous integration. This year’s 3D InCites Awards program included 36 nominees across ten categories, with a panel of four judges and results from online voting determining the winning entries.

Commenting on Henkel’s achievement, 3D InCites Editorial Director Françoise von Trapp said, “Developing solutions for the most pressing materials challenges for today’s semiconductor packaging technologies is no easy feat. To tackle several in one year demonstrates Henkel’s commitment to the future heterogenous integration.  Congratulations on winning this award – it was well deserved.”
