Growing demand for new and added advanced electronic products with a smaller form factor, greater functionality and performance with an inferior overall cost has driven the semiconductor industry to develop more innovative and evolving advanced packaging technologies. 3D TSV and 2.5D integration promise to further surge integration density, offer the potential to significantly decrease interconnect delays and expand system performance. Driven by the requirement for improved electrical performance or the lessening of timing delays, methods to use short vertical interconnects have been advanced to replace the long interconnects found in 2D packaging. Moreover, 2.5D and 3D are the best alternatives to transistor scaling in order to attain better throughput with an enhanced area, performance and cost. It is most appropriate for high-performance ASICs like HMCs (Hybrid Memory Cube), Optical sensors, NAND flash, Optical sensors, and Networking ASICs.
- Connected devices and additional wireless technologies like Wi-Fi and Bluetooth are some of the features combined in smart gadgets and devices for collaborating with other devices. Numerous integrated circuits essential to be incorporated in a single chip module for dipping the board space and cost. Miniaturization of electronic devices and the quick growth of smartphones and tablets are also anticipated to impact the demand of the market.
Unconventional and cutting-edge transformations of the customer electronics require manufacturers to improve the offerings in terms of processing power, design, power consumption, and user interface, frequently. Such upgrades in consumer electronics will need the use of strong technology. 3D TSV is the essence of integrated chip packaging on a nanometer scale ensuring healthy hardware for technology. Shipments of smartphones is expected to reach 2 billion units by 2020, majorly due to the availability of low-cost smartphones in emerging nations, such as China and India.
Scope of the Report
TSV is an enhanced performance interconnects made of a pillar-like structure with Copper, Tungsten or Poly through silicon that delivers electrical interconnects through a silicon die or through-wafer. In 2.5D structure, there is no assembling of dies on dies, nonetheless dies are on Silicon Interposer. The dies are crammed into a single package in a single plan and both are flip-chipped on a silicon interposer. In 3D structure, Interposer and dies are stacked one above other. Dies interact amongst each other with TSVs (Through Silicon Vias).
Key Market Trends
3D TSV to Hold a Dominant Position 3D TSV and 2.5D Technology Market
- Requirement for Through Silicon Via (TSV) is being motivated by the need for 3D stacking to condense interconnection length, surge signal speed, reduce power consumption and decrease power dissipation. Growing demand for new and added advanced electronic products with a smaller form factor, greater functionality and performance with an inferior overall cost has motivated the semiconductor industry to advance more innovative and emerging advanced packaging technologies.
- 3D packaging using the z-axis TSV stacking concept has been and remains to be investigated by a number of semiconductor manufacturers and research institutes and is supposed to be one of the greatest promising technologies. 3D TSV integration is usually integrated into DRAM with slight die area. HBM is manufactured using Chip on Wafer (CoW) molded style assembly technology which does limit the test coverage available because the memory cube can only be verified while in wafer form.
- There is a rising interest in the development and application of this new chip stacking method to existing and forthcoming devices. There are numerous steps involved in 3D chip stacking using TSV technology. Each of these steps necessitates different techniques, materials, and processes. Applications have to be well understood and integrated in order to effectively be applied.
