  • It can conduct currents one thousand times greater than can copper, without electromigration [a form of structural decomposition within a material due to large current flows] 5.

  • CustomSim verifies complex power management designs at the transistor level by identifying IR drop, electromigration and standby leakage issues that can impact the reliability and performance of integrated circuits.


  • By identifying and fixing voltage-drop and electromigration issues earlier in the flow, designers can eliminate costly iterations late in the design process.

  • I already know that a cpu can die due to overheat deteoration or due to electromigration, but that happens all during use.


  • Test conditions are such that electromigration does not occur.

  • Also, according to Tu, "the high-lead solder is known to have better resistance to electromigration, eutectic solder is not, especially when current crowding occurs at the cathode entrance where the electrons enter the solder bumps."

  • The scientist states that it is unclear whether "electromigration will enhance the failure caused by temperature cycle or power cycle", but it appears to be clear that a simple switch without further research is simply not possible with a product that is shipped in millions of units.

  • The more current you run through a eutectic bump, the quicker the electromigration.
