Whether you are a product manufacturer, OSAT, IDM, foundry, or fabless semiconductor company, packaging technologies impact your technical decisions and designs.

The Semiconductor Packaging Advantage

Integrated circuits are at the heart of modern technology and are continually evolving, becoming smaller, faster, and more energy-efficient, while expected to operate reliably in a range of conditions on Earth and in space. Packaging technologies are critical as they protect the IC from impact, heat, light, contamination, and even radiation but are also instrumental in enabling size reduction, managing heat, and improving performance. Packaging technologies continue to evolve to improve one or more of the following areas.

  • Performance improvements through better die-to-die or chip-to-chip interconnect
  • Size/volume reduction enabled by higher levels of integration
  • Reliability improvements including:
    • Protection from contamination, heat, and radiation
    • Mechanical stability through cycling conditions
    • Fewer defects/greater yield
  • Manufacturing/integration cost reduction


Packaging Technology Innovation

The benefits seen in advanced packaging are typically driven by technical innovation in one of the following areas:

These comprise innovations at the package architecture level which simplify the integration of heterogeneous devices into a single package. Example technologies include:

  • System in package (SiP)
  • Multi-chip module (MCM)
  • Antenna in package(AIP)
  • Chiplets
  • Discrete components in redistribution layer (RDL)
  • CMOS image sensor, image sensor processor, filter, and lens stack with actuation


  • Underfill materials to reduce mechanical stress
  • Encapsulation to protect the die from environmental contamination
  • Epoxy and thermal paste improve heat distribution
  • EMI shielding


  • Hybrid bonding including wafer-to-wafer (W2W), face-to-face (F2F), chip-to-wafer (C2W), face-to-back (F2B)
  • Flip chip, Through-silicon via (TSV)
  • Interposer/bridges/high-density (HD) routing
  • Fan-in and fan-out wafer-level packaging (FI-WLP, FO-WLP)


This is increasingly important as devices become more complex, power-hungry, and utilize stacking options that impact the device’s thermal profile. Innovation areas include:

  • Thermal interface materials (TIMs)
  • Microfluidics (future)
  • System-level considerations
