As higher-function, higher-dissipation, and mixed-mode ICs reach the
marketplace, the mix of packaging methods reflects the needs of the device
and of its product. Much of packaging is based on high-density wire
bonding, but many newer applications are using flip-chip and CSP
In this talk, we'll examine the technical requirements of substrates and
use of interposers as the "impedance translators" from chip-level wiring
densities to those of the substrate. The choices affect signal integrity,
thermal conductance, reliability, and cost.
