Advanced Semiconductor Packaging: Trends and Growth Drivers

Advanced Semiconductor Packaging: Trends and Growth Drivers

Advanced semiconductor packaging technologies are crucial due to the slowing of Moore's law and rising costs of monolithic Si IC development and manufacturing. Initially, components were individually packaged and integrated at the PCB board level, but as devices become smaller and require higher processing capabilities, component integration needs to be pushed beyond board level.

Advanced Materials and High-Performance Thermal Pastes

Advanced Materials and High-Performance Thermal Pastes

Thermal Interface Materials (TIMs) come in different forms, including thermal pads, thermal grease, gap fillers, thermal paste, and thermal gels. Thermal gel and thermal paste, two of the most commonly used forms, have gained significant momentum over the past several years, especially in the EV, data center, and 5G industries.

Unravelling Competing In-Mold Electronics Manufacturing Methodologies

Unravelling Competing In-Mold Electronics Manufacturing Methodologies

Smooth, functional surfaces that provide touch sensing, often with backlighting, are becoming increasingly common. Applications range from vehicle interiors and domestic appliances to medical devices and aircraft seating. Rather than relying on a mechanical or membrane switch, these surfaces utilize capacitive touch sensing - the same principle used in smartphone displays.
