Workshop Focus:
The Advanced Interconnect Technologies Workshop has been organized to allow for the presentation and debate of some of the latest interconnect and processing technologies in Electronic Packaging that support ever increasing device pitch and the need to embed increased levels of both passive and active functionality.

Session Synopsis:
There is a relentless pressure on Advanced Interconnect designs. We are all too familiar about the insatiable quest for enhanced functionality and more sophisticated performance with increasing power requirements in diminishing packaging profiles. While that might contain allusions for job security the challenge is nevertheless very daunting and vexing. The session’s dwells around some emerging technologies that strive to answer some of our most burning questions. New package stacking and 2.5D technology is covered while keeping an eye on some innovative cost reduction approaches like a super fast cure underfill, low temperature copper pillar bonding and a low cost FR4 material solution with 110 GHz transmission line properties. Wirebonding reliability is also covered in two different presentations. The session is designed to address some of the immediate challenges facing all of us.
