Wafer level packaging of materials with different coefficients of thermal expansion

Image Number 8 for United States Patent #7109635.

An electro-mechanical device package includes a cap material permanently bonded to a device wafer encapsulating an electromechanical device. An intermediate material is used to bond the device and capping material together at a low temperature, and a structure including the intermediate material emanating from either the device or cap material, or both, provides an interlocking at the bonding interface. One package includes a reusable carrier wafer with a similar coefficient of thermal expansion as a mating material and a low cost cap wafer of different material than the device wafer. A method for temporarily bonding the cap material to the carrier wafer includes attaching the cap material to the carrier wafer and is then singulated to mitigate thermal expansion mismatch with the device wafer.
