MSE Seminar: “Critical Role of Materials Science for Chiplet Heterogeneous Integrated Packaging”

Date(s) - 09/26/2023
3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Rhines Hall 125



Major advancements in Heterogenous Integration (HI) are necessary to meet the seismic shifts in information and communication technologies (ICT), which are the source of exponential growth in data that must be processed. One major design issue is how HI platforms can scale with finer die pitches, particularly as these pitches scale down from 20um and below. Ideally, one would like to stack die of different types to create a 3D stack of Known Good Die (KGD).

To achieve this grand goal, it will be necessary to incorporate a host of technical disciplines to make this a manufacturing reality. A discussion will be presented on the HI platforms that will facilitate the future industry goals. An overview of the materials science challenges that need to be addressed to achieve robust HI processes that produce reliable and high-yielding electronic packages will be presented.
