This paper presents the fabrication and the electrical characterization of poly-Si filled through-silicon vias, which were etched in a 180 µm thin silicon device wafer, bonded to a handle wafer by plasma activated oxide-to-silicon bonding. Heavily doped poly-Si was used as interconnection material, which was deposited by low-pressure chemical vapor deposition. Two different via geometries, i.e. stadium shaped, and circular shaped, were tried. Sputtered aluminum metallization layers as double-side redistribution lines and contact pads, were used. Both Kelvin structures and daisy chains were fabricated and their electrical resistances were measured. The electrical resistance of a single stadium-shaped via was measured to be about 24 Ω. The electrical resistance was varying from 60 Ω to 90 Ω for two-vias daisy chains. Measured results indicate that this via-first technology can be used for varying range of sensor applications like microphone, oscillator, resonator, etc where CMOS compatibility and high temperature processing are the prime requirements.
