|Cost Comparison of 2.5D/3D Packaging to other Packaging Technologies|
|Keywords: Cost, TSV, Interposer|
|2.5D and 3D applications using through silicon vias (TSVs) are increasingly being considered as an alternative to conventional packaging. Miniaturization and high performance product requirements are driving this move – even though in many cases the cost of both 2.5D and 3D is still high. In this paper we will identify the major cost drivers for 2.5 and 3D packaging and assess cost reduction progress including current costs versus expected future costs. We will also compare these costs to alternative packaging technologies including flip chip, package on package (PoP), and fan-out wafer level packaging.|
