Title: Semiconductor component and assembly having female conductive members

Abstract: A semiconductor component includes back side pin contacts fabricated using a circuit side fabrication method. The component also includes a thinned semiconductor die having a pattern of die contacts, and conductive members formed by filled openings in the die contacts and the die. In addition, the pin contacts are formed by terminal portions of the conductive members. The fabrication method includes the steps of forming the openings and the conductive members, and then thinning and etching the die to form the pin contacts. An alternate embodiment female component includes female conductive members configured to physically and electrically engage pin contacts on a mating component of a stacked assembly.
