IC Packaging Challenges and Opportunities in an Interconnected World – an OSAT’s Perspective
Today’s interconnected world has been enabled, to a large degree, by the significant advancements in semiconductor packaging. Smartphones, wearable devices and datacenter networking systems continue to challenge the packaging community as system designers look for faster, smaller and more integrated devices. And with the challenges come opportunities. Fortunately, advanced package development is not taking place in isolation. It benefits from advances occurring in other semiconductor technologies as well as advances in device design and simulation to improvements in wafer fabrication, product packaging and final test. The characteristics of a revolutionary integrated circuit (IC) package platform – innovative, reliable, extendable, cost effective and robust – are either created or supported by these technologies. From open collaboration at industry summits to strategic engagements with supply chain partners, IC packaging challenges and opportunities are being addressed. This is an outsourced semiconductor assembly and test (OSAT) supplier’s perspective.
