It seems plausible:

Consider an 8-layer die stack and a total of 40,000 interconnections:

1. What would ACF's conductive particle sizes be (7um +/- 1um diameter ) ?

2. The ACF adhesive film would have to highly engineered for viscosity flow and curability.

3. Bond force and wafer warpage would be tricky.

Rather than using bumps to interconnect between substrates, why not use an anisotropic conductive film (ACF)? This would allow testing and rejection of any defective chips. - Peter C. Salmon peter@petersalmon.com
