Wafer Level Packaging has come through 8” FI-WLP (Fan-in WLP) and its mass-production, 8” FO-WLP (Fan-out WLP) development and its massproduction, then come up to 12”, 300×300mmSQ molding since 1996, and now stepping into new stage, which is larger panel molding. That is over 500×500mm panel molding, using metal carrier or organic substrate.
Encapsulating high quality product does not mean to enlarge the molding system in geometric series. The limitation of the compound characteristics, total thickness variation, mold uniformity for entire panel, mold temperature uniformity and much more conditions have to be considered. Apic Yamada, as the only one supplier of fully automated mass-production system for WLP molding provided the molding know-how, accurate compound dispensing technology and further more technologies into new large panel molding system LPM-600 series.

For the last few decades, Transfer molding technology has been at the height of its prosperity. Now, this technology is facing its physical limitations for the packaging of the forefront devices, because of the further miniaturization, longer wire, narrower wire pitch, multi layer dies, Low-K material, etc.
The liquid compression molding, CDIM® technology is the best solution for these forefront devices, such as PoP, Multi-chip modules, as well as LED lens.
This fully automated CDIM-500 shall materialize the new packages, which are still in your imagination.
