This Open-Silicon webinar, moderated by Herb Reiter of eda 2 asic Consulting, Inc., addressed the unique physical design, assembly and packaging challenges of 2.5D ASIC SiPs, and outlined the proven solutions and strategies that are available to mitigate these issues in order to successfully ramp ASIC SiP designs into volume production. Using a 2.5D HBM2 ASIC SiP as a case study, the panelists covered all aspects of physical design of the interposer, ASIC, signal integrity analysis and STA, rail analysis and power integrity analysis. They also addressed the package design, assembly and testing both at the wafer level and the SiP level. The panelists emphasized the importance of understanding the entire 2.5D ASIC SiP manufacturing supply chain ecosystem and all of its stakeholders, such as the HBM2 memory, ASIC, interposer, package substrate, assembly house, foundry and more. Attendees learned about system planning, 2.5D ASIC SiP requirements and implementation strategies, package assembly flows, verification, test, and signoff. By understanding the implementation and manufacturing challenges associated with 2.5D ASIC SiPs and the solutions available, designers and architects are better equipped to achieve high volume manufacturing with lower risk, higher performance and faster time-to-market.
This webinar was ideal for chip designers and SoC architects of the next generation of high bandwidth applications in HPC, networking, deep learning, virtual reality, gaming, cloud computing and data centers.
