When one considers that the average smartphone contains approximately ten to twelve MEMS – a number which is projected to grow in the coming years – one gets a sense for the breadth of MEMS applications. The ability to design, test and commercialize new MEMS devices quickly is critical to a MEMS manufacturer’s market competitiveness. In order to meet the average three- to six-month cycle time, MEMS manufacturers need to leverage proven material solutions that are market-ready, market-tested and supported globally to facilitate multi-site design and manufacturing.

For trusted, proven MEMS materials, a full solutions approach, quick materials delivery for fast production ramp-up, supply chain simplification, global support and capability, along with an expert, knowledgeable team, Henkel is the obvious – and only- choice.

Customizable Silicone Materials for MEMS and Semiconductors

Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems (MEMS) are driving the merger of various sensing capabilities into a single device, and are used in many different applications. Largely employed in the handheld sector which is driving MEMS growth, smartphones today can contain as many as ten to twelve — or even more — MEMS devices, with this number projected to grow in the coming years.

Manufacturing MEMS devices is a balancing act, as MEMS die are very sensitive and fragile. Too much stress from die bonding may crack the die and, if the bonding adhesive’s modulus is high, the die can bend due to stress. This flex can cause the moving parts of the MEMS to go out of calibration. To accommodate these stress and modulus challenges, Henkel has developed a silicone material technology for MEMS devices which offers a low and stable modulus across the reflow profile. The material has no bleed and higher adhesion strength than previous-generation adhesives and is completely customizable. The unique silicone platform has been developed with freedom to tweak not only the rheological properties, but also other key material properties such as modulus from 0.1 to 200 MPa. Different color samples can also be developed based on the customer requirements.
