In glass interposer architecture and its assembly process, the mechanical responses of interposer structure under thermocompression process-induced thermal loading and generated shrinkage of molding material are regarded as a major reliability issue. Thousands of metal-filled via are involved in glass interposers and are regarded as a potential risk that can lead to cracking and the failure of an entire vehicle. In this study, a finite element-based submodeling approach is demonstrated to overcome the complexity of modeling and the relevant convergence issue of interposer architecture. Convergence analysis results revealed that at least four via pitch-wide regions of a local simulation model were needed to obtain the stable results enabled by the submodeling simulation approach. The stress-generation mechanism during thermocompression, the coefficient of thermal expansion mismatch, and the curing process-induced shrinkage were separately investigated. The critical stress location was explored as the outer corner of the chip, and the maximum first principal stress during the thermocompression process generated on the chip and glass interposer were 34 and 120 MPa, respectively.
