Fan-Out Packaging Technologies - The Past and Future

TSMC, Apple, and Samsung have all leveraged different Fan-Out Packaging. Join us to get an update on the latest progress of Wafer Level and Panel Level Fan-Out Packaging.

Low-density Fan-Out packaging technology has been around for more than a decade. Due to limitations in RDL counts and line space/line width capabilities, this technology has traditionally been used in low-to-medium pin count applications, such as Power Management ICs (PMIC), audio codecs and RF devices.

TSMC was the first to introduce a high-density wafer-based fan-out package technology solution called Integrated Fan-Out (InFO). This technology targets higher pin count applications, such as application processors (AP). Apple was an early adopter of this new technology, first used in the A10 application processor of the iPhone 7, introduced in late 2016.

Samsung has introduced Fan-Out Panel Level Packaging (FOPLP) technology. FOPLP is a high-density, panel-based Fan-Out package technology which competes directly with TSMC's InFO. In their latest Galaxy smartwatch, Samsung first used the FOPLP to co-package an AP die with a PMIC die.

In this webinar, we'll take a look back at our analysis which reviews the key elements of the two packaging solutions. We'll discuss the following:

  • Package cross-sections and RDL delayering images. Understand the structures and the differences between the two technology approaches.
  • An update on the latest progress of Wafer Level Fan-Out Packaging and Panel Level Fan-Out Packaging.
  • Apple M1 Ultra case study of packaging technology.
  • Sneak peek of our next Logic Packaging webinar.
