Re: Miniature SiP for Electric Vehicles

Junko, you noted quite correctly in your comments below on mass production moving out of EU (& US for that matter). The question then is how is this initiative going to identifiy & address the 'value-add' portion of the manufacturing of the ESiP and implement those in to processes that can stay on-shore in EU? I understand this is a high level news release so details are lacking.

Of the four objectives of ESiP -reliability, FA, Final Testing & SiP test vehicles are typically what all new R&D initiatives start with and most often end up transferring the knowledge from these into manufacturing off-shore for high volume.

Heterogeneous 3D integration has been talked about (including in this report) in the industry a lot but I have not seen that triggering either a plethora of new products nor new ASIC startups of tomorrow. The ones that are announcing (like Samsung in its stacked xDRAM and alliances like Memory Hypercube) are all existing big companies that have the resources to take on such ventures. I hope there is some outcome from ESiP initiatives that help smaller businesses and startups to spring up.

I believe there will be increasing innovation in all sorts of packaging as advanceds in Moore's Law come more slowly and at higher expense. It would be interresting if anyone from the project could get on and talk about what they add to what's out there today.

I do wish however all nations and regions could let go of the old thinking about the need for local production. It's a global industry with a global supply chain.

Europe bets on SiP

When I read about ESiP project outline, what jumped out of me is the following:

Over the past decade, mass production
of micro-/nanoelectronics devices
has been moving out of Europe.
While automotive and communications
domains are still European
strongholds, many mass-produced
devices, such as memory, have been
taken over by non-European producers.
One option for bringing volume
semiconductor production back to
Europe is to establish highly-automated
fabrication plants.


I am not certain if the new generation of SiP could be a savior for Europe's microelectornics industry, but I think there is definitely a demand for much more compact SiP.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
