Chaired by 3D InCites Community member Steffen Kröhnert of ESPAT Consulting, the Electronics System-Integration Technology Conferences (ESTC) series is a premier venue for academics and industry to present and discuss the latest developments in assembly and interconnection technology and new applications. This year, the event is being held in Sibiu, Romania from Tuesday, Sept 13-16.

There is a full program of keynotes, technical tracks and workshops, including exhibitions and professional development courses. Of course, several 3D InCites community members will be in attendance and here are some of the highlights of where you can find them.

Keynote 3-3 – CNF-MIM Technology, Enabling the Worlds Thinnest Capacitor

Maria Bylund, Smoltek AB, Gothenburg, Sweden

This keynote will present a novel technology (CNF-MIM) combining Carbon Nanofiber (CNF) materials and MIM (metal-insulator-metal)-like technology, enabling capacitors with total thickness lower than 40 µm suitable for use in future miniaturized electronics. The ultra-thin and discrete CNF-MIM capacitors have been manufactured and characterized on several substrates, showing excellent electrical properties such as high capacitance density of several hundreds of nF/mm2 , ESR (equivalent series resistance) in the mOhm range, low ESL (equivalent series inductance) on the order of 10 pH thus being promising for a multitude of applications within the semiconductor industry. To assess the long-term durability, CNF-MIM capacitors have also been subjected to prolonged exposure to high temperature and constant voltage bias environments following a HTS (high temperature storage) and BTS (biased temperature stress) standard. The CNF-MIM capacitor show initial robustness against degradation in these scenarios.


Keynote 3-5 – Advanced Packaging: Enabling a New Generation of Silicon Systems

Mark Gerber, Sr. Director, Engineering & Technical Marketing, ASE, Inc.

Demand for new efficiencies in the semiconductor design and manufacturing process is propelling the increasingly vital role of packaging to deliver on requirements related to miniaturization, power and performance. During his presentation, Mark will explore heterogeneous integration and chiplet innovation, and describe how advanced packaging technologies are enabling highly complex system integration, which is required to create a smarter and more sustainable world for generations to come.

Mark Gerber heads engineering and technical marketing in his capacity as Senior Director at ASE.

Professional Development Courses

PDC A – Why is now the right time to start digitalizing electronics manufacturing with an end-to-end holistic solution?

In this course, we will explore the key global trends impacting the Electronics Manufacturing and PCB Assembly Industry and the challenges that they bring to manufacturers – including the global shortage in components, dramatic increase in PCB complexity, significant increase in New Product Introductions (NPIs) and Product Revisions and decrease in lot sizes up to “lot-size-one”. We will demonstrate why digitalization of the electronics factory is the most effective solution to many of these challenges and why building a holistic end-to-end digitalization strategy can provide the most significant return-on-investment (ROI).

The PDC will also cover the topics, which have been described in the following e-book, white papers and webinar sessions:

Workshop 5 – Heterogeneous Integration Roadmap (HIR) Workshop, organized by William (Bill) Chen, ASE

Bill Chen holds the position of ASE Fellow & Senior Technical Advisor at ASE Group.




ASE’s VIPack™ is an advanced packaging platform designed to enable vertically integrated package solutions. VIPack™ represents ASE’s next generation of 3D heterogeneous integration architecture that extends design rules and achieves ultra-high density and performance. The platform leverages advanced redistribution layer (RDL) processes, embedded integration, and 2.5D and 3D technologies to help customers achieve unprecedented innovation when integrating multiple chips within a single package.


ERS electronic’s ProbeSense® is a patent-pending temperature calibration device allowing automatic and highly accurate measurements below 30mK in the actual probing area, and consists of a temperature sensor, which is mounted in the probe card position on the prober. Taking advantage of the XYZ axis motion capability of the prober, the sensor can measure the temperature over several points on the wafer surface in the same conditions as during wafer probing. ProbeSense™ is delivered with adapter plates to fit your prober of choice and is thereby compatible with all wafer probers in the semiconductor industry.


Evatec’s wafer platforms that process up to 300mm formats feature highest levels of throughput, support the use of long life targets and are equipped with a unique degassing technology that achieves best in class contact resistance and layer uniformity performance required in WLCSP, FOWLP and 2.5D/3D devices. FOPLP applications and next generation IC substrate technologies are supported by Evatec`s market leading CLUSTERLINE® 600 equipment platform. The design and concept of the panel based PVD equipment platform is based on the field proven wafer platform, and is capable of processing substrate sizes up to 650 x 650 mm, delivering highest levels in outgassing performance, layer adhesion and stack uniformity.


KLA’s extensive portfolio of packaging solutions accelerates the manufacturing process for outsourced semiconductor assembly and test (OSAT) providers, device manufacturers and foundries for a wide range of packaging applications. Innovations in advanced packaging, such as 2.5D/3D IC integration using through silicon vias (TSVs), wafer-level chip scale packaging (WLCSP), fan-out wafer-level packaging (FOWLP) and heterogeneous integration as well as a wide range of IC substrates create new and evolving process requirements.
