Known Good Die: Reducing Costs Through Yield Optimization2012-11-15
Santa Clara, CA
KGD (Known Good Die) has been a household word in the semiconductor industry for many years and typically triggers thoughts like "difficult to deal with" or "an admirable objective". KGDs, or "probably good die", as people have started to call them with the emergence of 3D-ICs, are no longer relegated to a few niche applications. KGDs are the essential building blocks for 2.5D and 3D ICs and will conquer many mainstream applications. As important revenue and profit generators, they are now getting much more attention from engineering experts and business people. New considerations like extensive use of BIST and system-level redundancy introduce new ideas to increase yield and lower cost. As KGDs are made easier and more cost-effective to design and manufacture, they are shedding the "difficult to deal with" image.
This conference will give you an up-to-date view of the industry trend towards 2.5D and 3D-ICs. Experts in this field will outline KGD capabilities and plans of key suppliers. Also, customers will highlight additional KGD requirements as well as major benefits 2.5/3D ICs offer electronic system vendors.
