Advancing 2.5D and 3D Packaging through Value Engineering
Hosted by the Advanced Packaging Committee, SEMI Americas


Wednesday, July 10, 2013
North Hall, Moscone Center

Growing industry requirement for vertical and heterogeneous integration, as well as related packaging strategies, remains a crucial focus for many forward-looking semiconductor supply chain players. While the implementation timeline of true 3D packaging with TSV technology has been pushed out for many applications, a number of highly innovative solutions for interposers (2.5D) are already hitting the market. However, improving process yield and lowering the cost relative to alternatives are proving resilient bottlenecks to mainstream 2.5D and 3D packaging. Clearly, headway hinges on the delivery of value appropriate to the function.

For an industry seeking progression of 2.5D, as well as an effective value/function equation for 3D, it appears that success can partly be found in the innovation and evolution of equipment and materials. This session will take a critical look at supply chain ecosystem participants who are pioneering tools and materials, exclusively geared towards high volume implementation of 2.5D and 3D packaging.
