MANHASSET, NY -- Sematech has opened an open, centralized online forum for members of the 3-D interconnect community to discuss and exchange information on standards activities.
The Standards Dashboard is to promote development of standards for heterogeneous 3-D integration with via participating partners: IEEE Standards Association, JEDEC, SEMI, and Si2.
Due to the tremendous benefits of higher performance, increased functionality, and cost reduction, adoption of 3-D integration is rapidly spreading to a wide variety of companies across the semiconductor and MEMS industries. Despite its high potential, a lack of uniform standards and a limited understanding of key manufacturing parameters threaten to delay introduction of high-volume products.
The challenge for the standardization community is to improve information sharing of standardization processes to accelerate the development and adoption of 3-D standards.
Companies involved in 3-D production can use the 3-D Standards Dashboard to find existing standards as well as to identify and track standards development activities in areas such as design, testing and production.
“The main objective of the 3-D Standards Dashboard is to identify risk areas and determine gaps related to all necessary standards for 3-D interconnects,” said Larry Smith, Sematech’s 3-D Enablement Center manager, in a statement.
Fabless, fab-lite and IDM companies, outsourced semiconductor assembly and test (OSAT) suppliers, and EDA process tool and materials suppliers worldwide are invited to participate here.
Join our online Radio Show on Friday 11th July starting at 2:00pm Eastern, when EETimes editor of all things fun and interesting, Max Maxfield, and embedded systems expert, Jack Ganssle, will debate as to just what is, and is not, and embedded system.
