Heterogeneous Integration Roadmap: Interconnects for 2D and 3D Architectures 🗓

-- (Ravi Mahajan) definitions, evolution, key metrics, bandwidth, power delivery, signaling ...

Three sponsoring chapters: Electronics Packaging; Electron Devices; and Photonics
Speaker: Dr. Ravi Mahajan, Intel Fellow (and chair of the 2D/3D Architectures Working Group) View Webinar
Original Webinar Date: Wednesday, May 13, 2019
Cost: none
Location: on the Internet
Summary: With increasing interest in on-package integration, there is a need to describe package architectures and their interconnect capabilities in a simple and consistent manner. This webinar has two primary objectives: to (a) define and proliferate a new standardized nomenclature for package architectures covering and clearly demarcating both 2D and 3D constructions, and to (b) define and proliferate key metrics driving the evolution of the physical interconnects in these architectures. The webinar will focus on describing envelopes for how package interconnects should scale to support increasing on-package bandwidth requirements. The webinar will also touch upon the scaling of key metrics to ensure efficient power delivery and low-loss high-speed signaling.
Over following weeks, webinars will cover additional chapters within the Roadmap, presented by the chairs of their respective Working Groups. To get dates and topics, please join our Chapter Dlist (if you aren’t already on it).

Bio: Dr. Ravi Mahajan is an Intel Fellow responsible for Assembly and Packaging Technology Pathfinding for future silicon nodes. Ravi joined Intel in 1992 after earning Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from Lehigh University. He holds the original patents for silicon bridges that became the foundation for Intel’s EMIB technology. His early insights have also led to high-performance, cost-effective cooling solutions for high-end microprocessors and the proliferation of photo-mechanics techniques used for thermo-mechanical stress model validation. He is one of the founding editors for the Intel Assembly and Test Technology Journal (IATTJ) and currently VP of Publications & Managing Editor-in-Chief of the IEEE Transactions of the CPMT. He is an IEEE EPS Distinguished Lecturer. His contributions during his Intel career have earned him numerous industry honors, including most recently the 2020 Richard Chu ITHERM Award for Excellence He has been long associated with ASME’s InterPACK conference and was Conference Co-Chair of the 2017 Conference. Ravi is a Fellow of two leading societies, ASME and IEEE. He was named Intel Fellow in 2017.
