Summary: Heterogeneous integration uses packaging technology to integrate dissimilar chips, photonic devices, and/or components (side-by-side and/or stacked) with different materials and functions, and from different fabless design houses, foundries, wafer sizes, feature sizes and companies into a system or subsystem. In the coming years we will see more implementations of higher levels of heterogeneous integration, whether it is for time-to-market, performance, form factor, power consumption or cost. In this lecture, the definition, classifications, applications, and trends in heterogeneous integration will be presented. Outline:
— Definition of Heterogeneous Integration
— Classifications of Heterogeneous Integration: on Organic Substrates; on Silicon Substrates (TSV-Interposers); on Silicon Substrates (TSV-less Interposers); on Fan-Out RDL Substrates; on Ceramics Substrates
— Applications of Heterogeneous Integration: of PoP; of CIS and Logic Chips; of LED and TSV-Interposers; of MEMS and Logic Chips; of VCSEL and PD
–Trends in Heterogeneous Integration
