Summary: Superconducting qubits are a leading candidate for constructing a large-scale quantum processor due to their lithographic scalability and relatively long coherence times. 3D qubit packaging, enabling the integration of more chips with greater functionality, higher I/O counts, and smaller pad pitches –- while maintaining qubit coherence –- is critical for scalable computing architecture. In this talk, I will present a microbump-based assembly approach to produce three-tier stacks with a qubit chip on the top, superconducting multi-chip-module (SMCM) on the bottom, and an interposer chip with superconducting through-silicon vias (TSVs) in the middle. I will discuss our work developing a double bump-bonding process to create the qubit-interposer-SMCM stack, focusing on electrical characterization, alignment accuracy, spacing and co-planarity.
