1.2 Introduction

Semiconductor packaging is a middle link in electronics systems manufacturing, starting from wafer fabrication of multiple integrated circuits and proceeding all the way to final enclosure for the finished product. It must meet the demands of the steps prior to it, at the front end of production, and those steps that follow, through mounting on a printed circuit board and final systems integration. These demands tend to be contradictory, while at the same time, requirements ...
