Assembly Technologies for the Front End

The drive towards 3D chiplets to extend Moore’s law is changing the way we think about advanced packaging interconnect. Assembly processes like die attach that used to be performed only in back-end factories are now being inserted into front-end wafer fabrication process flows. This presentation explores the latest advancements in front-end assembly technologies, focusing on bringing hybrid bonding into production and improving its accuracy and speed. We will also delve into recent advancements in TCB for 3D chip-to-wafer connections. The discussion will compare and contrast the relative benefits of hybrid bonding and TCB for both logic and memory applications. The adoption of these technologies in high performance AI devices and other applications will be discussed.

Generative AI and Chiplet: Impact on semiconductor industry and position of Taiwan

The semiconductor industry, particularly the processor branch, is undergoing significant transformations driven by two key trends: chiplet adoption and the rise of generative AI.

Chiplet is a kind of ground swell for which the industry has geared up and started adopting it for a couple of years. The developers have step by step removed the technical obstacles, putting in place the supply chain.

Generative AI adoption has surged, driven by hyperscalers and cloud players investing heavily in AI servers to construct their infrastructure.

This presentation will unveil the latest trends in chiplet adoption and will dissect Gen AI investment to identify who is making the revenues of it and what we Gen AI means for the processor industry (GPU and AI accelerators vendors) to the supply chain (foundry and OSATs). While describing the global situation and worldwide enthusiasm around AI, this talk will also elaborate on Taiwan’s position and impact in that field.
