EPS 2019: Imagining Thomas Edison as the Father of Advanced Packaging

Thomas Alva Edison didn’t invent semiconductor device packaging, but he might have, had he lived just one more generation. “I find out what the world needs. Then I go ahead and try to invent it.”* Edison passed away in 1931, less than twenty years before John Bardeen, Walter Brattain, and William Shockley invented the transistor at Bell Labs in 1947, starting our electronic age.

Your Electronics Industry Publications, Blogs, and Online Communities Need Your Support

Everyone in the semiconductor industry seems so shocked by the steady stream of electronics industry publications closures and cutbacks over the past year. From where I sit as both the Founder and Editor of 3D InCites (Aka Queen of 3D), as well as Editorial Director of Kiterocket, none of what is happening surprises me. Indeed, this week’s outpouring of dismay on LinkedIn over the layoffs at Asp... »

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... »

Advanced Packaging Industry: A Wonderful World

The semiconductor industry is at a turning point. The slowdown in CMOS scaling, coupled with escalating costs, has prompted the industry to rely on integrated circuit (IC) packaging to extend the benefits of the More-than-Moore era. Thus, the advanced packaging industry has entered its most successful period, boosted by widespread needs for better integration; the slowdown of Moore’s law; and me... »
