aha...TSVs, they can be 5um or so...sub-um alignment makes sense, thank you @docdivekar!

@krisi As referenced in the article, one of the alignment challenges is the tolerance stackup for microbumps and TSV's. I have seen IMEC's roadmap where the microbumps are less than 30um in dia and the TSV's are heading lower than 5um. Without the submicron alignment accuracy needed, wafer to wafer bonding will not be realized!

Sounds extremely impressive but why would need sub-micron alignment capability for 300mm wafer?

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
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.
