Open-Silicon to Present at the IEEE Electronic Design Process Symposium (EDPS) in Milpitas, CA

MILPITAS, CA–(Marketwired – September 19, 2017) – Open-Silicon, a system-optimized ASIC solution provider, today announced that its vice president of manufacturing operations, Asim Salim, will present “High Volume Manufacturing Supply Chain Ecosystem for 2.5D HBM2 ASIC SiPs” at the 24th annual IEEE Electronic Design Process Symposium (EDPS) on Efficient Design and Manufacturing in Milpitas, CA. Additionally, the company’s director of packaging and assembly, Dan Leung, will join other leaders in the design and manufacturing community in a panel discussion about supply chain integration.


Who: Asim Salim, Vice President of Manufacturing Operations, Open-Silicon
Title: “High Volume Manufacturing Supply Chain Ecosystem for 2.5D HBM2 ASIC SiPs”
When: Thursday, September 21, 2017, Session 2: Driving to Higher Yield
Where: SEMI, 673 S. Milpitas Blvd, Milpitas, CA

Abstract: The manufacturing supply chain ecosystem is facing some unique challenges in addressing the memory requirements for emerging applications where high bandwidth and density, based on real-time random operations are required. High Bandwidth Memory (HBM2) meets these requirements and delivers unprecedented bandwidth, power efficiency and small form factor for applications such as high performance computing, networking, deep learning, virtual reality, gaming and cloud computing. The adoption of 2.5D technology presents a multitude of game-changing advantages for chip designers facing the complexity and cost of smaller geometries. Adding interposer into the design increases the complexity of package design, assembly and testing, both at the wafer level and the SiP level. A comprehensive understanding of the total 2.5D HBM2 ASIC SiP manufacturing supply chain ecosystem, and the unique set of requirements that each of its stakeholders encounter, is necessary for the successful ramping of HBM2 ASIC SiP designs into volume production.

Panel Discussion:

Who: Dan Leung, Director of Packaging and Assembly, Open-Silicon
Panel Title: “EDA and IC Design and Manufacturing and Test”
When: Friday, September 22, 2017, Afternoon Session
Where: SEMI, 673 S. Milpitas Blvd, Milpitas, CA
Focus: This panel, moderated by Herb Reiter, President of eda 2 asic Consulting, and Ron Leckie, President of INFRASTRUCTURE Advisors, will address the evolution of the semiconductor supply chain and the major improvements that have been made to integrate the various functional groups into the design-to-manufacturing flow, even in the face of increased outsourcing. While manufacturing data flows reasonably well in a forward direction between several functional groups, it could be improved by going in the reverse direction, where there are many opportunities to improve feedback for enhanced quality, reliability and yields. There is a lot of talk about “Big Data”, but what should the industry be doing to apply it to improve the links from EDA/Design to Fab to Assembly/Test to the Customer/Consumer? This panel will feature panelists from Open-Silicon, Cisco, NVIDIA, Invensas, PDF Solutions and Advantest.

About EDPS

The Electronic Design Process Symposium has fostered the free exchange of ideas among the top thinkers, movers and shakers who focus on how chips and systems are designed in the electronics industry. It provides a forum for this cross-section of the design community to discuss state-or-the-art improvements to electronics design processes and CAD methodologies, rather than on the functions of the individual tools themselves. To register for the event, please visit the EDPS registration page.
