Rick, thanks for the link. I am caught up with emails from the holiday break and found the work of Prof. Joungho Kim of KAIST in Phil Garou's article: http://www.electroiq.com/blogs/insights_from_leading_edge/2012/12/iftle-126-2012-gatech-interposer-conference-part-2.html?cmpid=EnlAPDecember192012 The link above describes some work of KAIST on glass interposers vs. Silicon. Interesting thing is that it is also the first instance where I see optical wave guides in the context of 2.5D/3D stacking. MP Divakar

KAIST has two 3-D papers at the event. One on TSV failures and the other looks more interesting on 2.5-D GPU and memory. See http://www.designcon.com/santaclara/conference/tracks.php?session_id=239

Rick, I am looking forward to your next five... I would be curious to know what KAIST is going to present on 3D Stacks (haven't seen much from them on this). Regarding 400Gbits systems, it could herald the beginning of the end of Copper chassis-to-chassis interconnects as we know it; for sure it will restrict the application to within cabinet interconnects. But there are still challenges on motherboards -need better dielectric materials which will drive up the costs, not to mention power and signal routing and signal integrity. MP Divakar

Overview: Battle-hardened veterans of the electronics industry have heard of the “connected car” so often that they assume it’s a done deal. But do we really know what it takes to get a car connected and what its future entails? Join EE Times editor Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of movers and shakers in the connected car business. Executives from Cisco, Siemens and NXP will share ideas, plans and hopes for connected cars and their future. After the first 30 minutes of the radio show, our listeners will have the opportunity to ask questions via live online chat.
