I am somewhat uncomfortable pointing this out, but the Stanford/Monolithic3D/Rambus IEDM paper (14.2) about heat extraction has absolutely nothing to do with TSVs. It talks about heat removal using inter-layer-vias of the Power Delivery Networks in monolithic 3D devices that have no TSVs. Just sayin'
The paper on reliability discussing the "Effect of Local Deformation Caused by Cu-TSVs..." has important implications to the placement of TSV's and the keep-out rules. This is something that is still developing and has many process-dependent influences (via middle or via last etc.) as well as type of stacking (die to die vs. wafer to wafer) and the die thickness.
Regrettably I could not attend IEDM this year but would be great to see more review articles as Kris also comments above.
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. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
