ALEXANDRIA, Va., Jan. 8 -- Avago Technologies Wireless IP (Singapore), Singapore, has been assigned a patent (8,344,504) developed by James Wholey, Saratoga, Calif., and Ray Parkhurst, Santa Clara, Calif., for a "semiconductor structure comprising pillar and moisture barrier."
The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "A semiconductor structure includes multiple semiconductor devices on a substrate and a metal layer disposed over the semiconductor devices, the metal layer comprising at least a first trace and a second trace. A conductive pillar is disposed directly on and in electrical contact with the first trace of the metal layer, and a dielectric layer is selectively disposed between the metal layer and the conductive pillar, where the dielectric layer electrically isolates the second trace from the pillar. A moisture barrier surrounds the semiconductor devices around a periphery of the semiconductor structure, and extends from the substrate through the dielectric layer to the conductive pillar."
The patent application was filed on March 30, 2011 (13/075,493). The full-text of the patent can be found at http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser Sect1=PTO1&Sect2=HITOFF&d=PALL&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsrchnum.htm&r=1&f=G&l=50&s1=8,344,504.PN.&OS=PN/8,344,504&RS=PN/8,344,504
