Featured Event

3-D Architectures for Semiconductor Integration and Packaging Conference
The 9th international conference, 3-D Architectures for Semiconductor Integration and Packaging, brings together technology and business leaders from around the world to take a look at the technology and market landscape for emerging 3-D device and systems integration and interconnect. Today, questions around 3-D solutions increasingly focus on when, not if, the industry will see product introduction and high volume manufacturing. Products based on 3-D chip scale packaging have already made significant inroads, in particular for image sensors, and 2.5-D devices with interposers, e.g. in FPGAs, are also seeing market introduction, and very healthy market growth for such uses is widely anticipated.
