IFTLE 422: Is Advanced Packaging Production Returning to the US by SHIP?

IFTLE 422: Is Advanced Packaging Production Returning to the US by SHIP?

Is advanced packaging production coming back to the USA?  The Navy (i.e. NSWC Crane) is currently seeking proposals from the industry for the development of technical and business plans to establish a secure on-shore design, assembly, and test capability. This facility should support the heterogeneous integration of state-of-the-art (SOTA) commercial integrated circuits (ICs) with defense specifi... »

A Look Inside The  3D Technology Toolbox For STCO

A Look Inside The 3D Technology Toolbox For STCO

System-technology co-optimization (STCO) – enabled by 3D integration technologies – is seen as a next ‘knob’ for continuing the scaling path. Eric Beyne, imec fellow and program director of imec’s 3D system integration program and Julien Ryckaert, program director 3D hybrid scaling at imec, unravel the STCO principle, open up the 3D technology toolbox and bring up two promising cases: lo... »

Advanced SiPs Help More than Moore Reach Maturity

Advanced SiPs Help More than Moore Reach Maturity

Earlier this summer, 175 system-in-package (SiP) experts from all over the world met at the Marriott Hotel in Monterey’s Old Town at the IMAPS Advanced SiPs Conference. This conference focused exclusively on innovative SiP technology developments and trends, demonstrating that a significant part of the value creation is moving from the silicon to the package. Nozad Karim, VP: SiP/System Integrat... »
