Abstract: The thermal expansion mismatch problem for a chip due to temperature decrease from processing temperature to room temperature may cause residual stress inside the chip structure. The thermal prestress accumulated and may affect the chip reliability when the chip was subjected to the thermal loading again. In this paper, the effect of thermal prestress on the micromirror chip embedded with copper through-silicon vias (TSVs) was investigated by the finite element method. In analysis, the micromirror chip embedded with TSVs was analyzed first under thermal loading which resulted from temperature decrease between the stress free processing temperature and room temperature. This process produced a thermal prestress in the micromirror chip. The chip was then subjected to a heat source at the bottom while in operation and the heat transfer analysis was used to simulate this situation. Finally, the thermal stress analysis was carried out to obtain the deformation and the stress distribution in the chip. The results show that the thermal prestress had strong effect on the chip reliability and should be reduced as much as possible. This paper proposed a three steps analysis method to obtain the deformation and the stress distribution in the chip, in which the effect of thermal prestress on the chip reliability was evaluated effectively.

Abstract: The thermal stress and thermal fatigue life for three different microgyroscope chip models were investigated in this paper. The deformation and stress distribution in chip, at interface between microgyroscope and chip, and in the spring of microgyroscope were obtained for three different microgyroscope chip models by the finite element method. The results show that for the simplified model, no obvious differences from linear or nonlinear analyses are obtained and the fatigue life of microgyroscope chip can be predicted with the properly simplified model. Also, the model having the same process in fabricating microgyroscope and carrier has better reliability. This paper provides an effective method for the reliability analysis of microgyroscope chip.
