Image Number 13 for United States Patent #8129742.
A semiconductor chip assembly includes a semiconductor device, a heat spreader, a conductive trace and an adhesive. The heat spreader includes a post and a base. The conductive trace includes a pad, a terminal and a plated through-hole. The semiconductor device is electrically connected to the conductive trace and thermally connected to the heat spreader. The post extends upwardly from the base into an opening in the adhesive, and the base extends laterally from the post. The conductive trace provides signal routing between the pad and the terminal using the plated through-hole.
