Integrated Circuit Packaging Expert
An integrated circuit packaging expert was sought for a patent infringement case before the ITC involving materials science technology used in the manufacture of electronics and microelectronics. Specifically, the patent addressed methods of integrated circuit packaging involving ball bonding and TAB bonding techniques. The patented technology minimized the risk of damaging electrostatic discharge, known as ESD. Claimant alleged that the defendants infringed on its patents by importing and selling hard disk drives, and devices using hard disk drives that are made offshore using methods and equipment that infringe on their technology.
The clients asked IMS ExpertServices to locate an expert in integrated circuit packaging with extensive knowledge of and experience with integrated circuit fabrication techniques such as ball bonding and TAB bonding. The expert was needed to consult on the dissipative properties of ceramic materials for the prevention of electrostatic discharge.
