AMD's Radeon R9 family is the result of eight years developing 3D-IC and interposer technology. What lessons did the company learn?
Monolithic 3DIC integration may provide a viable alternative to conventional 2D scaling for SoCs if manufacturing problems can be overcome.
How to enhance an 'ideal' parastitic extraction strategy to create a full 3D assembly-level parasitic netlist for simulation and circuit analysis.
Mobile and networking platforms need high bandwidth, low power consumption, and small footprint. These needs drove standards, such as LPDDR4, Wide I/O 2 and Hybrid Memory Cube.
3D-IC design is ready for take-off, following several years of intense collaboration to develop the necessary tools, methodologies and flows
Many design teams are looking at ways in which they can make use of 3D integration. Here are eight requirements for an effective 3D-IC design flow.
2.5D-IC integration overcomes 2D limitations such as cost, offchip bandwidth bottlenecks and I/O pin scarcity, and offers a route to true 3D-IC integration.
It’s time to take up the challenge of applying 3D integration technology to IC design. The manufacturing process technology is maturing, the tool chains are in place, and the opportunities to broaden your market by applying a new form of systemic integration are growing.
Meeting the challenges of moving beyond planar integration to side by side, and eventually truly stacked, dice, for designers, tool vendors and the supply chain.
A guide to emerging 3D integration techniques for ICs, including a look at various approaches, and some of the tools and standards issues involved.
