TSMC encapsulated the multiple chips assembled on a 1200mm2 silicon substrate to cut the chance of damage from warping with the company's CoWoS2 SiP technology.
Mentor Graphics is working on technology to analyse the effects of mechanical stress on integrated circuits, describing progress at the company's U2U conference.
3D-IC integration techniques such as the use of TSVs, die stacking and interposers are unlikely to limit performance, according to research from TSMC and IBM
Semiconductor process options outlined at IEDM by Luc van den Hove of imec as industry faces hard choices and rising costs
Texas Instruments had good news for teams that want to assemble 3DIC stacks using thru-silicon vias (TSVs). The stress induced by the copper TSVs is not as bad as many feared for nanometer-scale transistors.
