Image Number 2 for United States Patent #6426552.
A method for securing two or more semiconductor device components to one another. A hybrid adhesive material, including a pressure sensitive component and a thermoset component, is used to at least temporarily secure the semiconductor device components to each other. The pressure sensitive component of the hybrid adhesive material temporarily secures the semiconductor device components to one another. When the semiconductor device components are properly aligned, the hybrid adhesive material may be heated to cure the thermoset component thereof and to more permanently secure the semiconductor device components to one another. The cure temperature may be lower than about 200.degree. C. and as low as about 120.degree. C. or less. A system for effecting the method of the present invention is also disclosed, as well as semiconductor device assemblies that include the hybrid adhesive material.
