Advanced Packaging

Date and time TBD

Back-end packaging is increasingly important to semiconductor device form factor, thermal and power performance, and costs. Compounded by the demand for lead-free processing and the soaring cost of gold, the industry is developing new approaches to packaging, including redistribution layers (RDL), through silicon vias (TSV), copper pillars, wafer-level packaging (WLP) and copper wire bonding. Experts will discuss these and other approaches in this webcast.

Maximize uptime and optimize maintenance with AMS

Yukinobu Hayashi, Senior Field Applications Engineer from CyberOptics, explains the application uses of the WaferSense® Auto Multi Sensor™ (AMS) for Leveling, Vibration, and Relative Humidity (RH) that facilitates maximizing uptime and optimizes maintenance. The combination of these attributes in a thin wafer shaped all-in-one wireless sensor, provides engineers the ability to acquire highly repeatable measurements of tilt, vibration, and humidity while under a vacuum and without venting a chamber. The quantitative numeric results give engineers an objective basis for comparisons, and analysis that can be reproducible across multiple users over extended periods of time. June 13, 2018

Leveraging Baseline Checks for Robust Reliability Verification

As IP and IC designers and verification teams tackle increased complexity and expectations, reliability verification has become a necessary ingredient for success. Automotive, always-on mobile devices, IOT and other platforms require increasingly lower power envelopes and reduced device leakage while maintaining overall device performance. Foundries have also created new process nodes targeted for these applications. Having the ability to establish baseline checks for design and reliability requirements is critical to first pass success. January 08, 2018
