Singapore's A*STAR Institute of Microelectronics (IME), Qualcomm Inc. subsidiary Qualcomm Technologies Inc. and STATS ChipPAC are working together to develop technology building blocks for low-cost interposers (LCI) for 2.5D ICs.

According to Dim-Lee Kwong, executive director of IME, "2.5D/3D IC technology provides ample opportunities to further increase functionality and performance of semiconductor ICs. A collaborative approach is necessary for the industry to harness 2.5D/3D IC technologies successfully." "IME's consortium with Qualcomm Technologies and STATS ChipPAC focuses on pushing forward cost-effective manufacturing approaches in a timely manner," he added.

Jim Lederer, executive vice president and general manager of Qualcomm Technologies, believes that the initiative extends Qualcomm's R&D efforts in 2.5D and 3D technologies and shows how invested they are in the advancement of silicon technology.

"We are pleased to be part of this consortium to develop 2.5D technology solutions to address issues related to high volume manufacturing of 2.5D interposers," said Han Byung Joon, executive vice president and chief technology officer of STATS ChipPAC. "This collaboration, in conjunction with STATS ChipPAC's proven expertise in manufacturing 2.5D/3D ICs, expands our strategic relationship with Qualcomm Technologies and IME."
