How Advanced Packaging Technologies Are Helping Increase System Performance

By July 22, 2021 December 1st, 2023 No Comments

The packaging process, where different parts of a component are connected together, can be an overlooked aspect of semiconductor manufacturing. In the past, some in the industry considered packaging to be a rudimentary part of the process considered on the back-end.

Packaging, though, is now getting a fresh look as the semiconductor industry seeks to pack even more performance and capabilities into less space. In this EE Times column, SK hynix Project Leader Ho-Young Son provides new insights into how packaging can push the boundaries of memory chips and system performance overall.
He explains how advanced technologies, such as TSV (through-silicon via) and Fan-out wafer-level packaging, are helping create even smaller, thinner memory chips with higher capacities. These packaging techniques also have added benefits, such as more efficiently dissipating heat.
