This will obviously need new generation of EDA tools too . What is the status on that front ?

.."volume commercialization of heterogeneous stacks of processor, memory, mixed-signal, networking and I/O chips formed into silicon skyscrapers as high as 100 chips per stack .." - this is very ambitious goal!! Generally sounds reasonable, but very skeptical of the idea of liquid cooling. May fine for special application but definitely not for commercial.

One also mustn't lose sight of 3d interconnect taking up more and more area especially with more and more stacked dies.

Hope that can remain an option not become a specific requirement. :)

will this technology be complete future in the next few years to much higher density processors on a single chip.

Sounds like a perfect use for industrial diamonds - underfill material!

An excellent overview of current 3D status and roadmap except for the glaring omission of Allvia - a small foundry located right here in Si Valley that has pioneered TSV technology at a prototype level for the last 5-6 years and provides smaller customers access to this technology. They also have Si Interposers with integrated capacitors.

hm: You're right! Although 3D itself shouldn't affect lifetime (none of our 3D-ICs from 2004 have failed yet), when more circuitry is added the mean time between failures is likely to become unacceptably small. Continual on-chip testing may be the answer.

Long term reliability of these parts is also of concern. There has to be new testing methodology.

The serial nature of stacking and the vertical thermal proximity are fundamental concerns.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
