Flip chip, also known as controlled collapse chip connection (C4), is used for interconnecting semiconductor devices, such as IC chips, microscopic devices, micro sensors, and microprocessor to external circuitry while utilizing deposited solder bumps onto the chip pads. Use of flip chip interconnections offers numerous advantages over conventional wire bond, which includes superior thermal & electrical performance, reduced form factors, well-defined construction, substrate flexibility for varying performance requirements, and the highest I/O capability.
The growth of the global flip chip market is majorly driven by rise in need for circuit miniaturization, rise in trend in Internet of Things (IoT), and technological superiority over wire bonding. However, huge initial investment required for setting up new manufacturing facility and less options for customization are the restraints associated with flip chip, which hamper the market growth. Moreover, surge in demand for sensors in smartphone industry and increase in integration of flip chip in personal electronic devices such as PCs and mobiles are expected to offer lucrative opportunities for the market.
The global flip chip market is segmented on the basis of flip chip packaging technology, bumping technology, industry, and region. On the basis of bumping technology, the market is divided into copper pillar, solder bumping, gold bumping, and others, including aluminum & conductive polymer bumping. The copper pillar segment dominates the market, as it is a next-generation flip chip interconnect, which meet current and future electronic device requirements. It serves as an ideal interconnect option for applications such as transceivers, embedded processors, and electrical processors.
