Design for Manufacture Network: “Packaging in a Post Moore’s World”

10th September 2015 @ 8:30 am - 4:30 pm


Moore’s Law reaches its 50th anniversary in this year and with Finfet technologies and some advances in the wafer processing capabilities it looks set to continue for some years. However there is a growing recognition that the dynamic in the industry is changing and that Moore’s law is important to fewer and fewer players and no longer can you be assured that the next node will indeed be cheaper.

So some nodes such as 28nm and maybe 40nm have become the nodes where most people are likely to design their products for a significant time. In addition the industry will start to improve these nodes in ways that we have not seen in the past. There will be new processes, materials and devices developed for these nodes and advanced packaging solutions such as 2.5D and 3D advanced forms of WLCSP and SIP’s will become as important as process development.

Is now the time for packaging?

The industry has been waiting for advanced packaging to become an affordable reality for some years and some are sceptical that it ever will. However as Moore’s law no longer offers an affordable integration path, is it finally time that these advanced technologies can become mainstream?

What will be the packaging challenges in the coming few years can packing packaging compensate for the slowdown in Moore’s law and what will the challenges be, Thermal, Mechanical, Noise, interconnect density and what ways can these be solved for future devices and systems.
