U.S. Patents Awarded to Inventors in Arizona (Dec. 3)

(Targeted News Service Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Targeted News Service Targeted News Service ALEXANDRIA, Va., Dec. 3 -- The following federal patents were awarded to inventors in Arizona.

*** Amkor Technology Assigned Patent ALEXANDRIA, Va., Dec. 3 -- Amkor Technology, Chandler, Ariz., has been assigned a patent (8,316,536) developed by Ronald Patrick Huemoeller, Chandler, Ariz., David Jon Hiner, Chandler, Ariz., and Russ Lie, Phoenix, for a "multi-level circuit substrate fabrication method." The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "A method of making a semiconductor package substrate includes laser-ablating channels in the substrate. After the channels are ablated in the substrate, conductive material is added to fill the channels and cover the surface of the substrate. Then a photomask etching process simultaneously forms a circuit pattern above the surface of the substrate and removes excess metal above the channels, by removing metal above the surface only in patterned regions. The result is a two-level circuit pattern having conductors within and above the substrate." The patent application was filed on May 9, 2008 (12/151,857).
