Silicon TSVs

TSVs enable electrical interconnections through several hundred microns.

Bosch offers silicon TSVs. Their advantage is the very low parasitic capacitance and a stress-optimized design enabled by the Bosch airgap technology. These features make them suitable for advanced MEMS applications.

Silicon TSV capabilities:

  • Low resistance: < 50 Ohm
  • low parasitic capacitance: < 50fF
  • pitch 120-150µm
  • through up to 300 µm of silicon thickness
  • flat MEMS Wafer for standard testability, handling & packaging
  • aluminum top metallization and redistribution layer (RDL) possible
  • oxide and nitride passivation layers possible

Metal TSVs

Metal TSVs are available with low resistance and low parasitic capacitance, limited so far to 50 µm depth:
