IPC Symposium Puts Spotlight on IC Substrate and Package Assembly

Reading time ( words)

The electronics industry is in the early stages of a new era, with unprecedented change already in motion. In this era of ‘Heterogeneous Integration’ led by massive changes in semiconductor and advanced packaging sectors, the days of following Moore’s Law are over. Chiplet-based design architectures incorporating heterogeneous integration packaging methods will enable next-generation electronic systems and applications. These fundamental changes in the semiconductor sector have significant impact throughout the rest of the electronics supply chain. As lines blur between IC-Substrate and HDI printed circuit board technologies and capabilities, the lines between OSAT and EMS manufactures also blur.

In line with this, the IPC Advanced Packaging Symposium, with the theme “Building the IC-Substrate and Package Assembly Ecosystem”, is designed for executives, government, and industry leaders to discuss opportunities and challenges for next-generation advanced packaging production. The discussion will move past the hype to identify key business and technology issues with near- and longer-term solutions, and will cover public policy updates, commercial and defense electronics technology drivers, and current business environment for IC substrates and component assembly and test manufacturing.

The two-day event is dedicated to in-depth discussions on strengthening the IC substrate and package assembly ecosystem in North America and Europe. The intent of the symposium is to bring commercial and defense, electronic industry leaders, together to:

  • Focus on highest priority needs for IC-Substrates and Advanced Packaging spanning the next 3-10 years;
  • Identify key challenges to overcome that enable sustainable businesses over the long run;
  • Move beyond general issue awareness and focus on ‘punching through’ into actionable research, development, design, materials, manufacturing, and business operations execution needs/projects; and,
  • Enable attendees to walk away with actionable next steps and an expanded network for continued development efforts.

Speakers will span the advanced packaging ecosystem and semiconductor supply chain: component makers, HDI PCB fabricators, IC substrate fabricators, assembly and test manufacturers, equipment, and material suppliers. Four featured keynote presentations will include senior leaders at Intel Corp., US Department of Defense, SRC Semiconductor Research Corp., and TechSearch International.

With 28 speakers and eight sessions, the agenda will also include the latest insights from speakers representing the US Department of Commerce, the European Commission, Intel, National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), Northrop Grumman, Raytheon, Schweizer Electronic, SEMCO, SkyWater, TTM, Western Digital, and others.

Understanding the UHDI Market

11/28/2022 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
The more we investigate UHDI in the current market, the more advanced packaging becomes a part of the conversation. Yet there are so many questions to be answered. The I-Connect007 Editorial Team met with Calumet’s Todd Brassard and Meredith LaBeau recently to get answers to these questions and find out where the UHDI market is headed.

Taiyo’s Brian Wojtkiewicz Discusses Flex, HDI and More

10/25/2022 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
Nolan Johnson spoke with Brian Wojtkiewicz at PCB West about Taiyo’s latest developments in solder mask technology. They discussed the company’s advances in flexible circuits, HDI, and much more. In particular, Brian discusses the importance of reliability in fabrication and assembly. "We’re always in the fabricators’ shops. I’m out in the field talking to them, helping the operators understand the process, and making things work better because then we don’t have issues down the road," he says.

Catching Up With John Johnson, New Director of Business Development at ASC

09/28/2022 | Dan Beaulieu, D.B. Management Group
It’s always good to catch up with old friends, especially when you can start working together. I recently spoke with my friend John Johnson, who has joined American Standard Circuits as the director of business development. At ASC, John will be using the Averatek A-SAP process that he was previously involved with. He shares some of his background and provides insight on the best ways to use this semi-additive PCB fabrication process that opens the capability window for forming trace and space.
