Abstract: An apparatus and method for reducing delamination of an integrated circuit module is disclosed. The integrated circuit module includes a laminate substrate. The integrated circuit module further includes an integrated circuit die operably coupled with the laminate substrate and a plastic semiconductor package overmolded with the laminate substrate. The laminate substrate includes a die attach pad including a plurality of metal oxide regions and non-oxidized metal regions disposed on the die attach pads.
