Heterogeneous IC Packaging: Optimizing Performance And Cost

Leading integrated circuit (IC) foundries are already shipping 7-nm and 5-nm wafers and 3-nm product qualifications are ongoing. Wafer costs continue to soar as high transistor density requires ever more expensive processes to fabricate them. Even if defect densities can remain relatively flat as new nodes emerge, the cost per unit area of silicon increases nonlinearly. These economics have pla... » read more
