Workshop Speaker #1: John Park (Cadence)

Abstract: In the spirit of More-than-Moore, design teams are turning to advanced packaging techniques involving multiple chiplets to meet today’s demands of increased functional density, higher bandwidths and lower power products. Helping to accelerate this trend, the large IC foundries are now competing with the traditional packaging solution providers (OSATs) by providing their own back-end/packaging solutions based on wafer-level manufacturing techniques. The result is an explosion in the number of packaging technologies, pivoting the world of semiconductor packaging from a necessary evil to a value-add technology. From this presentation, you will learn about trends in advanced multi-chip(let) design, definitions to new terms like heterogenous integration, and challenges for package and IC designers when migrating to cutting-edge 2.5D and 3D packaging solutions.

Workshop Speaker #2: Ganesh Subbarayan (Purdue)

Abstract: Heterogeneous Integration provides a powerful and cost-effective means for building complex Systems-in-Package (SiPs). Recently, sophisticated examples of heterogeneously integrated packages containing nearly 50 dies, many fabricated by different vendors on different technological nodes, have been demonstrated. In general, integration of large number of dies leads to a polynomial increase in material interfaces, which are potential locations for increased thermal resistance and mechanical fracture.  Also, the larger sized multi-die packages result in complex chip-package interactions, while the smaller solder bump size results in joints that are largely made of brittle intermetallic compounds. In this talk, I will broadly describe the reliability concerns in heterogeneously integrated packages and illustrate through examples the thermo-mechanical behavioral characterization necessary for their reliability assessment. Specifically, I will describe (1) an assessment of stress induced by Through Silicon Vias (TSV) and its impact on mobility (2) the reasons for package-caused fracture in back-end-of-line (BEOL) structures (referred as chip-package interaction) (3) the effect of thermal expansion mismatch between the mold compound and silicon on fracture in BEOL structures and (4) modeling and experimental characterization of phase growth under current and elevated temperature (electromigration) in microbumps. Underlying the examples are sophisticated multiphysics computational models for moving (crack or phase) boundaries as well as fabricated test devices.

Workshop Speaker #3: Muhannad Bakir (Georgia Tech)

Abstract: Monolithic ICs have progressed at an unprecedented rate of innovation in the past 60 years. But, due to performance, energy, and cost considerations, 2.5D and 3D ‘polylithic ICs’ have emerged as key enablers for the next phase of Moore’s Law. This presentation will discuss various emerging polylithic integration approaches using 2.5D and 3D IC technologies, including those being developed at Georgia Tech’s Integrated 3D Systems Lab. In particular, we first explore and benchmark scalable bridge-chip based 2.5D/3D IC technologies. Power delivery and thermal design considerations are also discussed and benchmarked for such technologies. Next, we discuss emerging  3D ICs technologies, including 3D Integrated Chiplet-Encapsulation (3D ICE), which enables the encapsulation of multiple chiplets using low-temperature SiO2 (ICP-PECVD) resulting in SiO2-reconstituted-tiers. Such reconstituted-tiers can then be stacked onto CMOS wafers to enable dense heterogeneous chiplet integration within BEOL. Lastly, we also discuss the possibility of using selective cobalt ALD deposition to form dense chip I/O bonds in 3D ICs. Unlike conventional bonding solutions, ALD-based chip bonding does not require any mechanical loads, is based on low-temperature processes, and has a higher-tolerance to surface imperfections in general.

Workshop Speaker #4: Garth Sunberg & Dandan Lyu (Ansys)

Abstract: Advanced simulation techniques and methodologies will be presented for the electromagnetic and signal integrity analyses of high-speed interconnects in 3DICs, silicon interposers and large chiplet-based SoCs. An EM-aware design flow will be discussed that aims to offer performance optimization of high-speed buses in the presence of power grid and package ground planes. A computational multiscale approach will be presented to link the information of mesoscale dissimilar solder ball geometries to the macroscale drop shock of a printed circuit board (PCB). A novel implicit incompressible smoothed particle Galerkin (ISPG) method is introduced to model the free-surface solder reflow process and predict the solder ball shapes. Subsequently, the predicted solder ball shapes from the reflow analysis are used in a chip package model for the drop shock analysis. The mesoscale solder joint model is coupled concurrently with the macroscale chip package model using an explicit-explicit non-intrusive two-scale coupling method via the co-simulation technique.

Workshop Speaker #5: Dan Jiao (Purdue)

Abstract: Heterogeneous Integration (HI) has shown tremendous potential to overcome the limitations and shortcomings of current monolithic integration technology, and effectively combat the slow-down of Moore’s law. Currently, HI is impeded by the lack of tools seamlessly integrated for system-level design automation and optimization, and it has become a bottleneck of the design flow. Unlike the design automation and optimization of on-chip design, the package and system design for HI remains largely manual, tedious, time consuming, non-optimal, and error prone. The design time from intent to finish for a complex system is unacceptably large, yet only a small fraction of the design space is explored. The design automation and optimization of HI is challenging because it must (1) simultaneously address the electrical, electromagnetic, optical, thermal, mechanical, and reliability challenges of integrating separately designed and manufactured components into a high-level system, (2) account for a diverse range of applications ranging from high-performance computing to autonomous vehicles, and hence vastly disparate integration needs and system requirements. In this talk, I will review the needs, challenges, key building blocks, and recent advances in multiphysics-informed design automation and optimization of HI.

Workshop Speaker #6: Jeehwan Kim (MIT)

Abstract: For future of electronics such as bioelectronics, 3D integrated electronics, and bendable electronics, needs for flexibility and stackability of electronic products have substantially grown up. However, conventional wafer-based single-crystalline semiconductors cannot catch up with such trends because they are bound to the thick rigid wafers such that they are neither flexible nor stackable. Although polymer-based organic electronic materials are more compatible as they are mechanically complaint and less costly
than inorganic counterparts, their electronic/photonic performance is substantially inferior to that of single-
crystalline inorganic materials. For the past half a decade, my research group at MIT has focused on mitigating such performance-mechanical compliance dilemma by developing methods to obtain cheap, flexible, stackable, single-crystalline inorganic systems. In today’s talk, I will discuss about our strategies to realize such a dream electronic system [1-5] and how these strategies unlock new ways of manufacturing afvanced electronic systems [6-10]. I will highlight our 2D materials-based layer transfer (2DLT) technique that can produce single-crystalline freestanding membranes from any compound materials with their
excellent semiconducting performance. In addition, I will present unprecedented artificial heterostructures enabled by stacking of those freestanding 3D material membranes, e.g., world’s smallest vertically-stacked full color micro-LEDs [10], world’s best multiferroic devices [7], battery-less wireless e-skin [9,10], and
reconfigurable hetero-integrated chips with AI accelerators [8,10].
