Film Assisted Molding: An Enabling Technology for Encapsulation of Advanced Packages

John Crane

JH Crane & Associates

Scottsdale, AZ 85266 USA


The use of film in the transfer molding process, called Film Assist Molding (FAM), enables repeatable and high volume packaging for surfaces that must be kept free of mold compound, such as for Sensor/MEMS applications. Moreover, this encapsulation technology has provided the pathway for ever-increasing complex packages that are smaller and thinner, while compatible with superior mold compounds to meet the most stringent, cost effective customer device and package performance requirements. This presentation will introduce FAM, explore the possibilities and benefits of FAM to semiconductor encapsulation and explore implemented FAM solutions showing that it is possible to economically manufacture advanced packages of Sensors and MEMS in high volume production while achieving high device reliability.
