Embedded Actives And Discrete Passives In A Cavity Within Build-up Layers
MetadataShow full item record
Disclosed are any electronic system or module which includes embedded actives and discrete passives, and methods for use in fabricating packages containing embedded active devices and/or discrete passive devices. Exemplary apparatus comprises a plurality of build-up layers defining circuit interconnections and that comprise one or more thin film type of embedded passive devices, at least a cavity formed in the build-up layers, and at least an active device and/or at least a discrete passive device disposed in the cavity and electrically connected to the circuit interconnections of the build-up layers. A stiffener may be coupled to an exposed (back) surface of the active device and to an adjacent surface of the build-up layers. The build-up layers may be mounted to a core, and the core may be attached to a printed circuit board. Alternatively, a bottom surface of the build-up layers may be mounted to a printed circuit board without core. The packages have a chip reworkability, an easier thermal management, a very thin profile and enhanced electrical performance comparable to packages produced using chip-first or chip-middle approaches.
