With the change in the traditional IC scaling cadence, the expansive growth of “Big data,” and the pervasive nature of computing, rises a paradigm shift in integrated circuit scaling and microelectronic devices. The pervasive nature of computing drives a need for connecting billions of people and tens of billions of devices/things via cloud computing. Such connectivity effect will generate tremendous amount of data and would require a revolutionary change in the technology infrastructures being used to transmit, store and analyze data. Heterogeneous integration through package with technologies such as system in package (SIP), on package integration (OPI) and fan-out (WLFO and PLFO) are poised to change the packaging industry and play a disruptive role in enabling next generation devices.

Moore’s Law scaling can no longer maintain the pace of progress just when we need it most. Data, logic and applications are migrating to the cloud, consumerization of data and the rise of the Internet of Things are placing new demands and they are all occurring at the same time. Difficult challenges in power, performance, latency, bandwidth density, security and cost threaten our ability to maintain the progress that has enabled the growth of information technology. Meeting these challenges will require reduction in power and cost per function by a factor of 104 over the next 15 years while improving performance and decreasing latency. Only a revolution in packaging through Complex 3D-SiP can provide a solution. This will require new tools for design and simulation, new packaging architectures, production processes, materials, and equipment. The difficult challenges and potential solutions will be discussed.
XwinSys recently launched the ONYX - a novel in-line and non-destructive hybrid metrology system, uniquely integrating advanced XRF, 2D and 3D optical technologies, designed to meet the current and future metrological challenges of the semiconductor industry. The unique hybrid configuration of the ONYX enables a solution to challenging applications through various analytical approaches and effective SW algorithms.July 06, 2016Sponsored by XwinSys Technology Development Ltd.
Microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) present both unique market opportunities and significant manufacturing challenges for product designers in nearly every application segment. Used as accelerometers, pressure sensors, optical devices, microfluidic devices, and more, these microfabricated sensors and actuators often need to be exposed to the environment, but also need to be protected from environmental factors. Although standard semiconductor manufacturing methods provide a baseline capability in meeting these challenges, the unique requirements of MEMS devices drive a need for specialized epoxies and adhesives able to satisfy often-conflicting demands.May 12, 2016Sponsored by Master Bond, Inc.,
XwinSys identified the semiconductors recent market trends and developed a novel XRF technology, named NMT: Noise-reduced Multilayer Thin-film measurement. This innovative approach can be used for in-line inspection and metrology features, to accurately and precisely analyze single and multi-layered elements in ultra-thin films. NMT novel technology can be utilized for in-line applications ranging from localized ultra-thin film stacks to the inspection of 3D localized features to the analysis of defects involving geometries, voids and material elements.
