Delamination is the most common reliability issue of IC and will cause severe damage to function/life. In this paper, TOF-SIMS and XPS were taken to analyze the chemical status of leadframe surfaces with different die bonding processes. From the analysis, the root cause of delamination at the interface between molding compound and leadframe was due to additional tin and lead on the leadframe surface.
