IFTLE 405: DC Hu of SiPlus Classifies Advanced Packaging Technologies at IMPACT 2018

IFTLE 405: DC Hu of SiPlus Classifies Advanced Packaging Technologies at IMPACT 2018

As scientists, we have a tendency to classify and categorize. It’s our way of comparing and contrasting things in our world. Some of these classifications stick and some don’t. For instance at the start of 3D a decade or so ago, Eric Beyne of IMEC laid out a perfectly reasonable classification of 3D structures based on the level of interconnect they were making. [ Link] It made all the sense i... »

MEMS Packaging Market is Growing Faster Than The MEMS Devices Market

According to Yole Développement (Yole), the MEMS packaging market will grow from US$2.56 billion in 2016 to US$6.46 billion in 2022, showing a 16.7% CAGR[1] over this period. The MEMS packaging market’s value is growing faster than the MEMS device market’s value: respectively, a 16.7% CAGR for packaging versus 14.1% for devices, during the period 2016 – 2022. Under this dynamic context,... »

The FAST route to the Top of the TSV Mountain

The FAST route to the Top of the TSV Mountain

. While on a recent visit to UnitySC in Grenoble, France, I spent some time visiting with a semiconductor process equipment company that shares the same cleanroom space: KOBUS. Named for a genus of the African antelope for its elegance and speed, the company has developed a unique approach to deposition for through silicon via (TSV) metallization processes (barrier, seed and fill) combining the pe... »

Path Finding and 3DPF

Path Finding and 3DPF

In the past year, I have written short pieces explaining how Path Finding methodology can proactively help identify viable solutions or reactively identify solutions if something changes during manufacturing. The next few blogs will look at specific examples using a PF tool to help separate the ‘wheat from the chaff’. Signal Assignments When I was designing ASICs/SOCs at VLSI Technology, we no... »

Why is it Taking so Long to Ramp Interposer and 3D IC Designs?

Why is it Taking so Long to Ramp Interposer and 3D IC Designs?

And what are we going to do about it in 2015…? A moment ago I finished reading my predictions for 2014. I wrote them on January 11, 2014, almost exactly one year ago. After convincing myself that I was roughly on target, I am going to stick my neck out again, and, hopefully, give you some food for thought. I hope you can agree with me that my previous predictions, emphasizing good prospects for... »
