These would include filling sub-composites to improve planarity and avoid resin starvation, and filling surface microvias with copper if the panel will be chemically or mechanically planarized later to reduce the copper foil thickness for improved fine line generation.
As a result of this research, post barrier CMP planarity, specifically density array erosion, is improved by varying the specific barrier slurry removal rate ratios in a controllable fashion," said Jim Schlueter, Air Products' advanced barrier technology manager, who is presenting the technical paper.

Elsewhere, this planarity is interrupted: by the shadows under the bolts in Mine Site, 2011, and their strange orientation relative to the picture plane; the oblique positioning of the tools in Grippers, 2011; or the receding cavities in Steam Donkey Valvey 2011.
The need for planarity, additional processing steps and high-temperature processing makes bumping and flip-chip bonding less than ideal.
Using the newly acquired system, CEA-LETI will determine parameters such as TTV (Total Thickness Variation), planarity, bow, warp, roughness, 3D topography, film thickness as well as the ground breaking TSV measurement capability.
As with Arlon's other NWA products, 55ST and 55LM are lightweight (25% less than glass-epoxy), exhibit low in-plane CTE's of 9-12 ppm/[degrees]C, excellent surface flatness and planarity and inherently resist CAF formation.
Automotive QC and R&D applications include evaluation of gasketed and clamped surfaces, bolted joints, lamination press planarity, roller system nip impressions, heat sealing bars, composite layups, heat sink contact uniformity, tire tread design and much more.
In addition to improving planarity, fill now needs to handle CMP-ECD, etch, lithography, stress and rapid thermal annealing (RTA).
pad that improves shock absorption (G-Max), drainage, and planarity of the field.
