IMAPS Device Packaging Conference 2022 takes place next week – March 8-10, here in our home state of Arizona, and we at 3D InCites are very excited! There are over 300 attendees registered and the show floor and hotel are sold out. It’s been two years since the event took place in person, and it was also the last time we held the 3D InCites Awards Ceremony in person. On top of that, we have recently established a partnership with IMAPS, and we are now their official industry partner. It’s gearing up to be a great conference. Look out for Francoise who will be at the 3D InCites booth conducting interviews for her Podcast, the official Podcast of the conference, be sure to stop by.

Here is how our Community Members are participating next week, including keynotes, technical tracks and exhibition booths.


Tuesday Evening

So Many High Performance Packages:  Is There a Winner?

Moderator: Jan Vardaman, President and Founder TechSearch International, Inc.


Calvin Cheung, ASE Group
Mike Kelly, Amkor Technology
Suresh Ramalingam, Xilinx
Islam (Sam) Salama, Hyperion Technologies
Raja Swaminathan, AMD

New packaging solutions are being adopted to achieve the economic advantages that were previously met with silicon scaling.  Heterogeneous integration, especially chiplets, is pivotal in this new era.  The difficulty is making a package choice from the sea of options.  This panel examines the drivers for different options with proponents of different packages, including Silicon Interposer, Fan-out on Substrate, and Embedded Bridge. Advantages of sided-by-side and 3D configurations will be debated. 


Wednesday 11:30-12

Thursday 8:10am-8:55am

Hybrid Bonding for the Next Generation of High Performance Devices

Laura Mirkarimi, VP of Engineering, 3D Portfolio and Bonding Technology, Xperi Corp.

The electronics industry continues to pursue optimal performance for the insatiable consumer demand of computation intensive products like GPUs, CPUs and AI accelerators. While the monolithic system on chip approach promises exceptional performance, it is costly. The advanced packaging industry has responded to the challenge with 2.5D and 3D integration solutions that bridge the performance gap with heterogeneous integration. Hybrid bonding combined with chiplet architectures within 2.5D will enable the distribution of function and nodes across a chips within a module, providing a path toward more flexible product introduction and innovation.
