Jamal Izadian, co-founder & president of RFCONNEXT, makes the case for shaped membrane transmission lines (SMTL) for use in high-speed 3D packaging applications. SMTL supports and improves flip-chip, micro-bumping, wafer thinning, system-in-package (SiP), package-on-package (PoP), and other packaging processes by extending the bandwidth and high-speed limits of these technologies.
Creative Materials Inc. announced a new series of pressure-sensitive tapes that suit use in the fabrication of solar cells and modules; to replace solder and/or conductive adhesive connections; or as bus bar materials for a wide variety of printed electronics applications, including touch panels, LCDs, electro-chromatic displays, and electro-luminescent displays.
Arthur Chait, president and CEO of EoPlex, describes the company’s high-volume print forming technology -- a lead carrier product called xLC-- and how it enables a cost-effective replacement for conventional quad flat pack no-lead (QFN) leadframes.
A fast-cure, low-shrinkage adhesive for optics and optical assembly, DYMAX OP-67-LS opto-mechanical adhesive cures in seconds for bonding of optical components. The product's low-shrink nature virtually eliminates movement during curing and subsequent thermal cycling.
SRC and researchers from Stanford University have developed a combination of elements that yields a unique nanostructure material for packaging. This advance should allow longer life for semiconductor devices while costing less than current state-of-the-art materials.
Tessera Technologies Inc. (NASDAQ:TSRA) announced that on February 17, 2011, it sent Amkor Technology, Inc. an official notice of termination of their license agreement with Tessera. The two companies are currently in arbitration regarding multiple issues.
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.
