Imbedded Component / Die Technology (IC/DT) A 3-D Modular Designed CCA: The need for high reliability electronic military systems coupled with reduced size and weight factors has demanded the evolution of circuit card manufacturing technology for miniturizing and assembling printed circuit card assemblies into standard modular designed configurations. IC/DT will advance electronics manufacturing to the next generation by transforming 2-D component assemblies into 3-D modular CCA'S. IC/DT SUBSTITUTES PLACEMENT OF COMPONENTS ON THE SURFACE OF AN ORGANIC SUBSTRATE ONTO OR NEAR A RIGID, THERMALLY CONDUCTIVE CORE UTILIZING MULTI-LEVEL CAVITIES. The elimination of all external component level secondary packaging further increases reliability by reducing mass and the number of opportunities for electrical interconnect failure.The use of bare die and thick/thin film components reduces both overall mass /weight and CCA size. IC/DT improves form and fit factors with increased component to substarte ratio allowing for smaller CCA's or for the addition of redundant systems to increase relaibility for hi-rel applications. Flexible interconnects from component to component or component to substrate, coupled with vibration - dampening encapsulant, allow for reliable use in high vibration and / or G-Force environments. Replacing solder interconnects, as the mechanoical and electrical attachment material, with conductive adheasives /epoxies and wire bonds allows for a more efficient interconnect media. The use of IC/DT when assembling CCA's can dramatically improve reliability and also improve form and fit factors by building CCA's in a modular 3-D configuration.
