New dry film negative photoresist for MEMS and wafer level packaging

Engineered Material Systems, Inc., a leading global supplier of negative photo resist materials for MEMS and TSV passivation/sealing applications, is pleased to introduce the DF-3590 dry-film negative photo resist for use in micro-electro mechanical systems (MEMS), wafer level packaging and CMOS applications (TSV sealing). This material formulation has been optimized for hot roll lamination and processing on MEMS and IC wafers.

DF-3590 is available in other thickness formats from 5 to 100 micron, ±5 percent. The cured chemistry can withstand harsh environments including resistance to extreme moisture conditions and corrosive chemicals.

The DF-3590 film is tougher (less brittle) than most negative photo resists on the market with a glass transition temperature of 154°C (by DMA Tan Delta) and a moderate modulus of 3.25 GPa at 25°C. It is hydrophobic in nature, providing chemical and moisture resistance. DF-3590 is compatible with and can be used in contact with the EMS line of spin-coatable photoresists.

DF-3590 is the latest addition to Engineered Materials Systems’ full line of film and liquid negative photo resists formulated for making microfluidic channels on MEMS devices and integrated circuits.
