All the major semiconductor players are embracing 3D integration, says Simon Deleonibus. The CEA-Leti scientist and IEEE Fellow wants to see TSV mature and new technologies develop based on wafer bonding. He speaks with Debra Vogler.
CEA-Leti signed a multiyear agreement with SHINKO ELECTRIC INDUSTRIES CO. LTD. to develop advanced semiconductor packaging technology. They will focus on volume production of silicon interposers.
Arthur W. Zafiropoulo, Ultratech, sees the 20/22nm node as a competition for gate-first and gate-last proponents to discover which will lead the semiconductor industry. Device makers that master TSV chip stacking will be the winners over the course of this decade, he says. This is an online exclusive essay in SST's Forecast for 2011: Back to Reality series.
Laurent Clavelier, head of solar technologies department at Leti, discusses the significance of Leti's IEDM paper #2.6 "Engineered substrates and 3D integration technology based on direct bonding for future More Moore and More than Moore integrated devices" with Debra Vogler, senior technical editor.
inTEST Corporation (NASDAQ: INTT) subsidiaries, Temptronic and Sigma Systems, both in Sharon, MA, will begin operating under the umbrella trade name, inTEST Thermal Solutions Corp.
Camtek Ltd. (Nasdaq:CAMT; TASE:CAMT) received an order for multiple wafer inspection systems from one of the world's largest manufacturers of CMOS image sensors (CIS).
InVisage Technologies, image sensor technology start-up, received its series C round of venture funding, led by Intel Capital. The undisclosed amount will be used to bring the company's quantum-dot-based QuantumFilm technology and products into mass production.
Palomar Technologies, precision microelectronics and optoelectronic packaging systems provider, will hold meetings at Stategies in Light to discuss its recent upgrades to high-brightness LED (HB-LED) assembly.
