SAN JOSE, Calif. - STATS ChipPAC Ltd. recently celebrated the grand opening of its new 300-mm embedded wafer-level ball grid array (eWLB) manufacturing facility.
The official inauguration was recently held at STATS ChipPAC’s Yishun facility in Singapore. In April, STATS ChipPAC moved into production within the plant.
STATS ChipPAC expects to continue to invest to further expand its eWLB capacity and capabilities over the next three years. The company said eWLB ''has the potential to realize a higher number of interconnects with standard pitches at multiple wafer technology nodes.''
David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
