Deliver 3D IC innovations faster

Deliver 3D IC innovations fasterOne of the biggest semiconductor engineering challenges today is delivering best-in-class devices while dealing with the technology scaling and cost limitations of monolithic IC design processes.  To overcome these challenges, a growing number of companies are turning to heterogeneous integration and the 3D stacking of ICs and specialized chiplets (implemented in different processes geometries) into 3D ICs. 


Heterogeneous IC integration enables companies to reach higher levels of optimal integration, performance, and lower power consumption than is possible in monolithic SoC ICs and multichip PCB system configurations.  The use of 3D ICs is growing for a wide range of applications, such as high-performance computing, artificial intelligence and machine learning accelerators, mobile handsets, and automotive for edge cloud computing.
