IPC Conference on Component Technology:
Closing the Gap in the Chip to PCB Process
September 10-12, 2013• Hilton Phoenix Chandler • Chandler, AZ
Event Host

The path to successful IC-to-package-to-board-level-interconnect encounters many obstacles along the way. Finding the right materials, equipment and processes is critical. IPC, with event host Amkor Technology, is presenting the Conference on Component Technology: Closing the Gap in the Chip to PCB Process to help the PCB supply chain and chip manufacturers address the many technology challenges in IC-to-board-level interconnections.

With an emphasis on design and manufacturing of component technology to interconnection solutions, the event will tackle the latest advancements and discoveries. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn from the experts!

This event will
bring together:
  • Fabricators
  • Interposer suppliers
  • Materials suppliers
  • Packaging manufacturers
  • Chip manufacturers
  • Designers
Technical Workshops

Tuesday, September 10


9:00 am–12:00 pm
Design and Fabrication of Semiconductor Package Interposers and Substrates for Today’s Demanding Applications
Phil Marcoux, Director, PPM Associates

This workshop is a primer on the hows and whys of 2.5-D and 3-D. It will cover the current “killer applications,” the materials and assembly methods used and who’s doing them. Suggested design guidelines and business decision planning tools will be covered. This course is of benefit to package designers, package fabricators, PCB designers and fabricators looking to expand into the new market.

2:00 pm–5:00 pm
System Integration and Design Challenges
Nozad Karim, VP Electrical Engineering and Characterization, Amkor Technology

System integration is driving and influencing performance improvements, miniaturization and cost reduction in new electronic products. This course will help participants identify the right packaging solution for broadband and wireless applications, as well as demonstrate the applicability of various interconnect solutions such as gold/copper/silver wires, solder and copper pillar flip chip, redistribution (RDL), interposers, embedded and integrated passive devices (IPD), and shielding to meet the concurrent design requirements for signal integrity, power integrity, electromagnetic compliance and thermal solutions.
