Alpha Mold Compounds Used for Cypress Products – KBA 89839

Version: *C

 

Question:

Which low-alpha and non-low alpha mold compounds does Cypress Semiconductor use for its products?

 

Answer:

The materials used for encapsulating semiconductor devices are known as plastic molding compounds. Molding compounds are generally composite materials consisting of epoxy resins, phenolic hardeners, silicas, catalysts, pigments, and mold release agents.

The following table lists the mold compounds used for Cypress products and specifies whether each is low-alpha mold compound material.
