Advanced Packaging Ecosystem: Challenges and Solutions

Advanced packaging architectures are today widely acknowledged as being increasingly important to drive performance and cost improvements of microelectronics systems. This trend is set to continue as on-package heterogeneous integration of diverse IP from multiple process nodes and multiple foundries will enable new product concepts, decrease time to market and deliver cost/yield benefits. Additionally, novel 3D architectures and continued die-to-die interconnect scaling are opening previously un-achievable concepts for die partitioning. These advanced packaging architectures provide a means to offer improved functional integration, but also present technical challenges across the supply chain [DieàPackageà BoardàSystem].

This presentation will highlight key challenges the industry will have to jointly address to enable the 3D heterogeneous integration future. Key areas of focus will be: (1) Drivers and directions in interconnect scaling, (2) Standardization of die-to-die connections, (3) Package-level integration of optical interconnects, and (4) Advanced substrate developments. The talk will conclude with a call for broad collaboration across industry and academia in multiple areas including technology R&D, design, standardization, and supply chain development.
