Vertical Circuits and Asymtek Enable Next-Generation 3D Interconnect Technology

Jul 24, 2008

Companies collaborate to enable high-volume manufacturing of VCI's 3D vertical interconnect solutions

Scotts Valley, CA � 15 July, 2008 - Vertical Circuits, Inc.(VCI), a leading supplier of advanced 3D die-level interconnect solutions, today announced its recognition of Asymtek, a Nordson company (Nasdaq: NDSN) and leader in dispensing, coating and jetting technologies, as a �Partner in Innovation.� Asymtek's Axiom� automated dispensing system plays a key role in enabling the high-volume manufacturing capability for VCI's 3D vertical interconnect process.

Vertical Circuits' patented vertical interconnect pillar (VIPTM) technology provides a low-cost native to existing wire bond and emerging through silicon via (TSV) interconnect solutions. The VIPTM solution enables IC manufacturers to deliver cost-effective stacked semiconductor die solutions that maximize the silicon density and minimize the package form factor. VCI's VIPTM conductors are dispensed on the edge of the die stack utilizing Asymtek's high speed, high accuracy jetting technology on the Axiom� dispenser.

�It has been a pleasure to work with the world leader in precision electronic material dispensing,� said Simon McElrea, Vertical Circuits' vice president of product development. �By leveraging Asymtek's proven fluid-jetting technology, originally developed for flip chip applications and incorporated into Asymtek's Axiom� platform, we have been able to offer a plug-and-play, VCI VIPTM ready, solution to our manufacturing partners. The simple user interface, patented fluid control features and proven equipment reliability are exemplary in our industry. The Axiom� solution makes the adoption of our technology into existing assembly lines seamless and straight forward.�

�VCI's VIPTM technology provides a more cost-effective and high-yield solution for interconnecting stacked die by using Asymtek's proven jetting capabilities,� comments Alec Babiarz, president, new business development, Asymtek. �Asymtek and other equipment partners are well positioned to provide customers the global service and support they require. We look forward to more industry adoption of the VIPTM technology.�

Vertical Circuits has licensed its VIPTM technology to leading global device manufacturers and packaging companies. The technology is ideally suited for high capacity removable, as well as embedded, flash memory applications, including a broad array of memory cards, USB memory, and emerging SSD products. In addition, the low inductance, high performance, characteristics of the VIPTM conductors also make them well suited for DDR2/3 modules, memory / logic device stacks, and specialty device applications.

Vertical Circuits and Asymtek will be displaying the VIPTM interconnect technology and polymer jetting tool solution at SEMICON West, being held at Moscone Center in San Francisco, July 15-17, 2008, booth #7115.
