The electrorecrystallization, recrystallization driven by electrical current stressing, of Cu 6Sn 5 intermetallic compound occurs in a Sn0.7Cu flip chip solder bump. The Cu 6Sn 5 dissolves in Sn0.7Cu at 1.0 × 10 4 A/cm 2 of current stressing under 150°C. The Cu flux in the solder joint, driven by the combination force of thermal gradient and electromigration, flows toward the cold side of the solder joint. The segregation of Cu results in recrystallization and thus redistribution of IMC at the cold side of the solder joint after current stops.
