Wafer bumping is an advanced packaging technique that attaches
solder spheres or gold bumps to the bond pads on a selected die.
Gold bumping is generally used for Tape Automated Bond (TAB)
assembly or Anisotropic Conductive Film (ACF) flip-chip assembly.
Solder bumping is primarily used for reflow flip-chip assembly
which unites the components face down, directly with the substrate
or board through conductive bumps on the bond pads. These bumps
deliver the electrical, mechanical and thermal interconnection
which provides direct contact between the chip package and the
Another process is called stud-bumping. Unlike gold and solder
bumping, this process can be done at the die level.
Wafer bumping also known as flip chip has traditionally been used
for high-end niche applications. However in the last few years it
has gone mainstream to include a wider range of consumer
applications geared towards both the performance driven market and
the form factor driven market.
