Photoresists for Back-End Applications

We offer a variety of Thick Film Resists from conventional DNQ & chemically amplified positive tone to photo polymerizing negative tone to make patterned conductive circuitry in semiconductor packages

Enable the manufacturing of TSV, RDL & bumping in advanced packaging

Thick Film Resists (TFR) for backend packaging conductive circuitry is typically made by a bottom-up metal plating process inside the same layer of a patterned TFR. 

Independently, resists for front-end processes are designed to develop circuitry patterns that are transferred to the substrate below through a patterned resist photolithography process. These advanced photoresist materials permit current manufacturing production equipment to produce next node products enabling your mobile lifestyle. See our front-end photoresist portfolio here.

What is a photoresist?

  • A liquid solution spun on a substrate or wafer
  • Acts like a photographic film. Photoresist is sensitive to and reacts chemically to light with various wavelengths 
  • Photoresist is resistant to wet metal plating solution or wet and dry etching      
  • Slightly alkaline aqueous solution developer creates a pattern

Basic components

  • Polymer (resistant to wet/dry etch)
  • Photosensitive Active Compound (PAC)
  • Photosensitive Acid Generator (PAG) or Photosensitive initiator (PI)
  • Casting solvent to make resist spun-on possible
