1. A method comprising:

  • etching a front-face of a first substrate to create a through substrate via (TSV), at a step before contact etch;

    forming at least a first contact between the TSV and an interconnect layer;

    forming at least a second contact between an active region and the interconnect layer;

    thinning a backside of the first substrate to expose the TSV;

    filling the TSV with a conductive material; and

    disposing a backside bonding pad, wherein the backside bonding pad is electrically coupled to the TSV.
