A dimensionally stable core for use in high density chip packages is provided. The stable core is a metal core, preferably copper, having clearances formed therein. Dielectric layers are provided concurrently on top and bottom surfaces of the metal core. Metal cap layers are provided concurrently on top surfaces of the dielectric layers. Blind or through vias are then drilled through the metal cap layers and extend into the dielectric layers and clearances formed in the metal core. If an isolated metal core is provided then the vias do not extend through the clearances in the copper core. The stable core reduces material movement of the substrate and achieves uniform shrinkage from substrate to substrate during lamination processing of the chip packages. This allows each substrate to perform the same. Additionally, a plurality of chip packages having the dimensionally stable core can be bonded together to obtain a high density chip package.
Please note there is up to 60 days of latency in this Status indicator for certain status conditions. You can obtain up-to-date Status indicator readings by ordering PAIR for the file.
An application with the status "Published" (which means it is pending) may be recently abandoned, but not yet updated to reflect its abandoned status. However, an application filed less than one year ago is unlikely to be abandoned.
A patent with the status "Granted" may be recently expired, but not yet updated to reflect its expired status. However, it is highly unlikely a patent less than 3.5 years old would be expired.
An application with the status "Abandoned" is almost always current, but there is a small chance it was recently revived and the status not yet updated.
