You know, I have some bad feeling of consolidation in packaging sector down the line...

It's intriguing, maybe inevitable. So I guess we would expect Samsung and Intel to do the same?

And to improve outcomes - by having it all in-house and well-coordinated; especially important, I'd venture, for heterogeneous TSV-based stacks.

The OSATs can probably compete against TSMC on cost basis but TSMC can still push their new packaging capabilities on grounds of better resolution of chip - package integration issues or just hold back on wafer supply. But one would think that TSMC will target its capabilities for the higher end of packaging ( e,g. MCMs using Flip Chip and 3D using TSVs ) in order to justify their higher margins.

Sometimes, I just think that TSMC has nothing more to do. It is interesting how this great company is winning. Congrats for this expansion. More revenue.

IoT Network Shoot Out
July 16, 1pm EDT Thursday

Replay available now: A handful of emerging network technologies are competing to be the preferred wide-area connection for the Internet of Things. All claim lower costs and power use than cellular but none have wide deployment yet. Listen in as proponents of leading contenders make their case to be the metro or national IoT network of the future. Rick Merritt, EE Times Silicon Valley Bureau Chief, moderators this discussion. Join in and ask his guests questions.
