This paper presents a power stack die package design for a point of load buck converter. The buck converter system in package (SiP) consists of a lower side Mosfet and a high side Mosfet together with an IC controller. Its structure includes a premolded leadframe with an IC controller. The two Mosfets (both low side and higher side) are stacked on the premolded leadfrrame (LF) and IC controller. Solder balls are placed on the leadframe’s exposed lands, and together with the two drains of Mosfets, to form the stacked die power package. The thermal cycling simulations for the solder balls to connect the PCB and solder joints of the two Mosfet die to the leadframe pads are studied. The failure mechanism and reliability analysis of the power package in TMCL test are discussed.
