Electromigration in TaAl Thin Film Heater Material
Abstract:Electromigration is usually observed in metal conductive lines of electronics chips. However, under conditions of high temperature and high current density, electro-migration will also occur in thin film resistor material. The electromigration in a thin film resistor will cause resistance degradations and result in resistor opens.
In this paper, electromigration failure mechanism in TaAl thin film resistor is discussed based on microstructural analysis. In addition, resistance degradations due to electromigration are characterized, and a model based on experimental data is generated to quantitatively describe this new phenomenon.

For more than 30 years, IS&T's series of digital printing conferences have been the leading forum for discussion of advances and new directions in 2D and 3D printing technologies. A comprehensive, industry-wide conference that brings together industry and academia, this meeting includes all aspects of the hardware, materials, software, images, and applications associated with digital printing systems?particularly those involved with additive manufacturing and fabrication?including bio-printing, printed electronics, page-wide, drop-on-demand, desktop and continuous ink jet, toner-based systems, and production digital printing, as well as the engineering capability, optimization, and science involved in these fields. In 2016, the conference changed its name formally to Printing for Fabrication to better reflect the content of the meeting and the evolving technology of printing.
