@unknown multiplier: there is minimal impact on the PCB developers by 3D TSV technology. In fact, 3D TSV's help alleviate the routing congestion on the PCB/motherboards as the number of I/O's in the package are increasing. A prime example would be an FPGA for 100Gig/40Gig motherboards -with differential signaling and the 12-lane transmit/receive (and the required grounds to isolate signals), this is going to choke the board design. So some functions of the boards including power management can be answered effectively by 2.5D/3D option. On an energy consumption level, 3D/2.5D makes sense. In fact, the joule/bit metric is ages apart from side-by-side on the motherboard vs. 3D stacked/2.5D stacked/lateral designs in favor of the latter. Dr. MP Divakar

3D IC means fewer components, like processor and memory merging into a single chip. Probably lead to reduced business for PCB.

Wouldn't motherboard or PCB developers be strongly impacted by 3DIC or TSV developments?
