Extending Moore’s Law with Advanced Packages
Abstract: Since the advent of integrated circuit technology in 1958, the integration has been primarily monolithic. Unfortunately, due to physical and economic reasons, the vast majority of analog chips, digital chips, and memory chips are each built on separate technologies. Therefore, in order to deliver optimum system performance, power, and cost, it is desirable to integrate multiple different die, each using its own optimized technology, in a single package. Advanced packaging technologies, e.g. 3DIC, SSIT(stacked silicon Interconnect technology) etc., have been developed to extend scaling beyond the Moore’s Law to achieve higher transistor count, increased functionality and superior performance. Xilinx is the leading provider of all programmable FPGA (Field Programmable Gate Array) products. To achieve high performance, but low power and cost, Xilinx has developed an innovative SSIT technology that employs microbumps and through-silicon vias (TSVs) to integrate multiple FPGA die slices placed side-by-side on a passive silicon interposer, and successfully delivered the industry’s first 28nm homogeneous SSIT device. This technology is further developed for advanced technical nodes (20nm, 16nm and beyond) to allow integrating heterogeneous components such as Processor, FPGA, GPU, Memory, Serdes, etc. on the same interposer die enabling faster computing through reduced latency.The advance of packaging and assembly technology will be introduced, and the benefits of advanced packaging to the various products will be highlighted. Successful qualification of these products is driving the high growth in the applications e.g. cloud computing, embedded vision, industrial IOT, and 5G wireless etc.

The Evolution of Packaging Technology for Mobile Platforms – Where We have been and where we are headed
Abstract: With the plateauing of Moore’s Law for semiconductors, we are at a watershed moment in the evolution of Packaging technology, especially for the demanding use cases presented by the myriad manifestations of Mobile products.
We will look at the progression of Packaging technology for Mobile platforms starting with traditional packaging approaches, to the rapid adoption of Flip Chip and Wafer-level Packaging and the future direction as we enter the realm of 5G, the convergence of Cellular and Computing and last but not the least, the rapid emergence of Automotive electronics. We will map the trends in the various emerging implementations of Mobile technology, such as High band width/ low latency Wireless communication, Virtual/ Augmented Reality and IOT’s into the corresponding implications for the underlying Semiconductor and Packaging technologies and highlight the fundamental technology elements that are likely to drive the Packaging direction going forward.
Bio: Dr. Raj Pendse leads Packaging Strategy at Qualcomm, covering core Packaging technology for Application Processors, Modems and RF/Analog devices and use cases in Mobile and adjacent markets like Automotive and Servers.
Prior to Qualcomm, Raj held leadership roles at STATSChipPAC (now JCET), Hewlett-Packard Labs and National Semiconductor, where his work spanned the areas of Packaging for high-end microprocessors, ASIC’s, GPU’s and low-cost packaging solutions for Consumer hardware. His most recent focus has been on new Packaging for 5G which includes novel approaches like SoC partitioning, new Memory integration schemes and mm wave RF & antenna integration.
Raj completed his BS in Materials Science from IIT Bombay with Top in Class honors and his Doctorate in Materials Science from UC Berkeley.

Design tools and modeling for power electronics packages – current status and future challenges
Abstract: Packaging of power semiconductors and passives is seeing significant changes. For example, the use of wide band gap devices (SiC and GaN) is set to accelerate, and advanced packaging technologies such as die embedding, chip-on-board, and press-pack assembly are now being developed. New materials such as sintered interconnects are also being for interconnects.
To support development and application of these packaging technologies, modelling and simulation tools need to address a wide range of interacting physical phenomena. This presentation details the current status of modelling tools for power electronics packaging and details the challenges for electrical, thermal, reliability and robustness analysis. For example, the need for multi-domain, multi-scale and multi-objective optimisation toolsets will be discussed. The presentation will provide examples of current modelling toolsets and discuss future challenges.
