CrossFire's patented foundation technology encompasses Die-First and Die-Last processes, which can be employed together or separately to create optimal solutions for virtually any system integration or connectivity challenge.

 

Die-First Process

Crossfire’s Die-First process consists of creating reconstituted wafers from semiconductor die and discrete components such as chip resistors and capacitors. The wafer is then processed with standard semiconductor back-end-of-line (BEOL) techniques, resulting in extremely dense connectivity profiles.

While large die can be handled with CrossFire’s Die-First process, it is optimized for smaller or lower value die and components.

Die-Last Process

CrossFire’s Die-Last process creates system connectivity first - again utilizing standard semiconductor BEOL techniques - followed by mounting semiconductors and components.  The Die-Last process supports the use of packaged parts such as Chip Scale Packages (CSPs) and Ball Grid Arrays (BGAs). The Die-Last process also supports mounting of Die-First devices as part of the overall assembly.

CrossFire’s Die-Last process is optimized for large and high-value die, enabling these devices to be added as one of the last manufacturing steps, thereby increasing yield and reducing losses of high-value devices.
