Solder Dams

Polyimide Solder Dams

Polyimide can also be used as a braze stop or solder dam. This polyimide is photo-definable and is non-conductive. The typical height of the dam is 3 to 6 microns.

Metal Solder Dams

Oxidizing metals can also be used as solder dams. The more common metals used for this purpose are TaN, TiW and Ni. The metal solder dam structures are photo-defined. These metals can either be placed on the Au conductor or windows can be opened in the conductor structure to expose these underlying layers.
