Advanced Packaging: A Changing Landscape Rife with Opportunities

May 10, 2016 at 1 PM ET / Sponsored by Brewer Science

Die stacking enables better chip performance in a small form factor, meeting the needs of smartphones, tablets, and other advanced devices. Through-silicon vias are moving into volume packaging production, but problems with reliability, cost, and scaling remain. The supply chain also must adjust to this “mid” step between front- and back-end chip production. This webcast will explore the wafer thinning, bonding, TSV formation and other critical process steps necessary to enable 3D integration.

Fan-Out Wafer Level Packaging

May 2016 (Date and time TBD) / Sponsored by Zeta Instruments

Wafer level packaging (WLP) using fan-out technology is an attractive platform for achieving low-cost low-profile package solutions for smart-phones and tablets, which require cost-effective, high-density interconnects in small form-factor packaging. Assembled directly on a silicon wafer, the approach is unconstrained by die size, providing the design flexibility to accommodate an unlimited number of interconnects between the package and the application board for maximum connection density, finer line/spacing, improved electrical and thermal performance and small package dimensions to meet the relentless form factor requirements and performance demands of the mobile market. In this webcast, industry experts will explain the FOWLP process, discuss recent advances and forecast future trends.
