The presentation began with a touch of humor, courtesy of technical difficulties with not one, but three malfunctioning microphones. Worden transitioned into an interactive style reminiscent of a late-night talk show host. The audience was treated to an energetic panel discussion, resembling a celebrity interview with Rountree and Stach.

Initial feedback from attendees was appreciation for hosting such an enthusiastic and memorable presentation. For many young engineers in the audience, the highlight of their week in Dallas, TX, was the opportunity to interact with Steve Stach, a pioneer in the industry. Others enjoyed the chance to reconnect with old friends.

As anticipated, Worden delivered a highly impactful experience during his inaugural SMTA presentation. His ability to engage and inspire left a lasting impression on all in attendance, further solidifying his reputation as a forward-thinking industry influencer.

TAIPEI – At this week’s SEMICON Taiwan, Henkel brings its extensive range of semiconductor packaging material solutions to customers in a collaborative setting designed to foster discussions that will help address application challenges. With recently launched innovations for high-reliability advanced packaging and wirebond devices, the company will showcase its enabling impact on some of the most demanding package designs used in the automotive, industrial, and high-performance computing sectors.

“As the SEMICON Taiwan show organizers have emphasized,” comments Henkel Global Market Segment Head for Semiconductor Packaging Materials, Ramachandran Trichur, “the semiconductor industry is central to nearly all technology development and to solving some of the world’s biggest challenges. Henkel is a key contributor to this progress, delivering cutting-edge semiconductor packaging materials for high reliability automotive packaging, AI and high-performance computing, and evolving industrial applications.”

As a leader in die attach pastes and films and having engineered several groundbreaking advanced packaging formulations, Henkel’s objective at SEMICON Taiwan is to introduce invited guests to materials that are helping semiconductor technologists respond to microelectronics advancement, including:

Automotive Electrification, Responsiveness, and Reliability– From power ICs to microcontrollers to sensors, the devices that make modern vehicles more electrified, safe, and connected require materials with robust processing capability and exceptional in-field performance. Henkel high thermal die attach adhesive Loctite Ablestik 6395T and pressure-less sintering material Loctite Ablestik 8068TI deliver the highest standard automotive grade 0 reliability and are compatible with various leadframe finishes, including Cu.

In addition, Henkel’s pioneering work in conductive die attach film materials is embodied in two of its top products, Loctite Ablestik CDF 200P and Loctite Ablestik CDF 600P. Both formulations offer the inherent benefits of conductive die attach film – tight bondline control, consistent fillet formation, no die tilt, and no resin bleed – and are distinguished by their different thermal and electrical conductivities, as well as die size compatibility. Henkel’s conductive die attach film materials are widely used for automotive microcontroller unit packages such as QFPs and TSSOPs.

High-Performance Computing and Mobile Processing Solutions– Next-generation processors are integrating the most advanced Si node flip chips, and protecting them against thermomechanical stress is vital to their reliability. Last year, Henkel introduced a breakthrough capillary underfill, Loctite Eccobond UF 9000AG, that balances high filler loading and fast flow capability. This combination helps packaging specialists meet volume production while ensuring excellent protection of chip interconnects. Lid and stiffener attach materials, also part of the Henkel portfolio, further protect high-value 2.5D and 3D packages by securing lids and peripheral stiffeners to reduce warpage, maintain coplanarity, and in some cases, may provide grounding and shielding capability.
