Convergence on the “Big Five”: Focus on Wafer-based Advanced SiP

Convergence on the “Big Five”: Focus on Wafer-based Advanced SiP

In the fourth installment of the series “Convergence on the Big Five,” we compared conventional SiP with advanced system-in-package (SiP), which is focused on laminate-based approaches, and is available and in production today. Advanced SiP packaging has been a game changer in addressing system-level integration and providing the lowest form factor at cost and performance points that address m... »
