Intel Assembly and Test Technology Development
The International Technology Roadmap for Semiconductors, known throughout the world as the ITRS, is a fifteen-year assessment of the semiconductor industry’s future technology requirements. These future needs drive present-day strategies for world-wide research and development among manufacturers’ research facilities, universities, and national labs. The objective of the ITRS is to ensure cost-effective advancements in the performance of the integrated circuit and the products that employ such devices, thereby continuing the health and success of this industry. The latest edition of ITRS was released in December 2007. This presentation will cover a review of ITRS key challenges related to Assembly and Packaging area.
Debendra Mallik is a principal engineer in the Assembly and Test Technology Development group in Intel Corporation. He manages packaging technology definition for Intel’s 32nm generation products.

Sensual Packaging – Packaging Technology that excites our senses Speaker: Srinivas T. Rao, Flextronics
With consumer electronics, meeting performance objectives is a requirement for entry but is no guarantee for success in the market place. Market acceptance and commercial success is driven often by intangibles that are easy to spot only after the fact. The make or break success is largely associated with final packaging. For mobile microelectronic products such as MP3 players, PDAs, cell phones and laptops the language of success is fashion; soft, sleek, sexy, ‘living’, glossy, hard, cold, green are the list of attributes. It is all about Sensual Packaging – Packaging Technology that excites our senses.
The press release in September from HP titled “The first-ever HP digital clutch to debut on Fashion Week runway” probably communicates the trend in consumer electronics. This presentation shares examples of product success, reviews technologies and mix to deliver ‘feelings’ expressed by the Industrial Designer to meet the mood of the consumer on ‘fashion’ and ‘green’ appeal. Value creation centered on Sensual packaging with methods that enhance touch, color, light, smell, and are environmentally compelling will be illustrated.
Srinivas Rao is vice president of Corporate Technology at Flextronics leading the initiative on Advanced Materials. He has held executive and senior technology positions as CEO and CTO of Molecular Nanosystems Inc., vice president of technology at Solectron Corporation, and held technology management and research positions at Raychem Corporation, Eastman Kodak Research Laboratories and RCA Laboratories. Dr. Rao’s technical background and expertise is in materials science, microelectronics and fabrication, electronic packaging, second level and system level assembly, and nanotechnology. Dr. Rao is a Distinguished Alumnus of Indian Institute of Technology Madras, and holds master’s and doctorate degrees in metallurgy and materials science from the Stevens Institute of Technology. He has served on the distinguished Blue Ribbon Task Force on Nanotechnology (2005) for the state of California, is recipient of RCAs “Outstanding Achievement Award, “Engineer of the Year” award in 2000 conferred by EP&P and the STAR Award (2004) for his services rendered to the Asian American community in Santa Clara County in California.

IMAPS France - Abstract Deadline November 5 for the 4th European ATW on Micropackaging and Thermal Management^
The French Chapter of IMAPS will hold its 4th European Advanced Technology Workshop on Micropackaging and Thermal Management on February 4-5, 2009, at Mercure Oceanide, Vieux Port, Sud La Rochelle. The workshop will be dedicated to the thermal management and particularly to convenient cooling solutions for high integration level of equipments. Rising speed of the components leads to increase the power dissipation while miniaturisation and low cost technologies don't facilitate the mastering of the thermal impedances.
In such conditions, the thermal management, as a part of the packaging solutions, is and will continue to be one of the main technological keys for the future progress of the electronic components. The workshop's sessions will include the following topics and papers are invited in these areas:
Cooling for microelectronics packaging
Heat condcutive materials
Chip, board and system thermal management
Thermal modelisation and simulation
Heatsinks, heatpipes and other cooling products
Liquid and phase change cooling
New cooling solutions
Experience return (products and systems cooling, power electronics, automotive, transport,...)
Thermal management of opto electronics components
Deadline for submitting papers is November 5, 2008. Authors must submit a 200-300 word abstract describing their proposed 25 minutes presentation (20 minutes + 5 minutes for questions). For more information, visit www.imapsfrance.org or contact Florence Vireton at firstname.lastname@example.org.
