We developed a highly reliable fan-out-type chip scale package (CSP) for a microcomputer or an ASIC (Application Specific IC) . We found that the solder joint reliability of the CSP under temperature cycling is equal to that of a quad flat package (QFP) and that its mechanical strength (determined from a board-bending test) is much higher than that of a QFP. The fatigue life of a Sn-Ag-Cu lead-free CSP solder joint determined from a cyclic board-bending test is almost equal to that of a Sn-37Pb CSP solder joint. Moreover, compared to a QFP, the occupied area of a CSP is decreased by 75% and its weight is decreased by 90%.
