Perspectives on the Cost of Fan-out Wafer Level Packaging vs. Flip Chip Packaging

Perspectives on the Cost of Fan-out Wafer Level Packaging vs. Flip Chip Packaging

Recently, I read a paper published in the 2017 IMAPS Device Packaging Conference proceedings, titled “Cost Comparison of Fan-out Wafer Level Packaging and Flip Chip Packaging,” written by Amy Lujan, of Savansys. Lujan did a very good analysis on the cost comparison of fan-out wafer-level packaging (FOWLP)  with chip-first and die face-down and flip chip (FC) packaging, according to a... »

Advanced Packaging Trends, Part I: Solving PR Strip and UBM/RDL Challenges

Advanced Packaging Trends, Part I: Solving PR Strip and UBM/RDL Challenges

Over the years, the semiconductor industry has relentlessly focused on shrinking gate dimensions to drive performance. This focus has now transitioned to the packaging side as customers are shifting from wire bonding to flip chip for use in wafer level packaging (WLP). According to VLSI Research, about 35% of chips are currently packaged using WLP techniques. Advanced packaging opportunities slowe... »

Continental Drifts or Tectonic Shifts? Advanced Packaging 2017

Continental Drifts or Tectonic Shifts? Advanced Packaging 2017

That’s great it starts with an earthquake … R.E.M. Boxing Day 2017 ended with an earthquake in Silicon Valley, at 10:32 pm, a magnitude 3.9 temblor near Alum Rock I thought could have been my neighbor dropping something heavy in the apartment upstairs, except that nobody lifts and drops anything that heavy, for that long, in the building where I live. No reports of damage, but the shaking came... »
