Flip Chip Design On A Coplanar Waveguide With A Pseudo-coaxial Ground Bump Configuration
MetadataShow full item record
A flip chip assembly is disclosed that includes a coplanar waveguide launch with a transmission line, and a bump interconnection that includes multiple ground bumps. The transmission line may be a radial transmission line. Similarly, the ground bumps may be arranged in a pseudo-coaxial configuration so as to effect a vertical transition in the flip chip assembly. A method is also disclosed that includes the steps of: providing a coplanar waveguide transmission line launch; providing a chip for attachment to the coplanar waveguide launch; arranging one or more ground bumps on the coplanar waveguide launch; and forming a bump interconnection between the coplanar waveguide launch and the chip. The coplanar waveguide launch provided in this method may include a radial transmission line. The step of arranging the multiple ground bumps may include the step of arranging multiple ground bumps in a pseudo-coaxial configuration.
