Fabrication of Through Silicon Vias (TSVs) with RF Capability by Magnetic Assembly of Nickel Wires
Student paper other, 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
Within this master thesis work, a novel TSV technology with RF capabilities is presented. A major focus was laid on the design and the construction of a fully automated fabrication tool for the assembly of Ni TSV cores. The utilisation of the ferromagnetic properties of nickel allowed for a highly parallelised self-assembly process which was implemented in the automated fabrication. Furthermore, a special eort was made to improve the RF capabilities of this type of TSVs. In order to increase the RF conductibility, a novel type of metal conductor was devised and fabricated. The deposition of a thin gold layer on the perimeter of the conductor allowed for an optimal utilisation of the skin eect to enhance the RF performance. The above-mentioned newly developed assembly tool was then used to build RF transmission lines test structures.
