At IEDM 2014, CEA-Leti presented a technique that prevents damage to base-layer transistors in monolithic 3DIC processes. As work progresses, the institute is preparing to receive 3DIC designs in 2017.
The automotive sector could become one of the key markets for 3D integration according to the head of Audi's progressive semiconductor program.
In the first of our weekly DAC 2013 previews, we discuss program highlights with general chair Yervant Zorian, including an expanded Designer Track, keynotes and golden jubilee celebrations.
TSVs and layers of organic electronics provide two ways to build medical sensors and prosthetics, as shown at ISSCC 2013.
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
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.
At the SNUG event this week, Synopsys is taking the wraps off its plans to support 3DIC, with updates to tools for physical design and verification.
This looks more like 2.5D silicon interposer-based technology to us, though it is a major and necessary advance
