ELECTRONICS INDUSTRY SUPPLY CHAIN: IS IT BROKEN?
Chair and Moderator: E. Jan Vardaman, TechSearch International, Inc.
Ivor Barber, AMD - Corporate VP Packaging
Veer Dhandapani, NXP Semiconductors - Sr. Director Automotive Package Innovation
Devan Iyer, Technology Management - Educator and Executive Advisor
Rebeca Jimenez, Amkor Technology - Corporate Vice President, Advanced SiP Business Unit
Paul Mescher, Microsoft - Senior Director IC Packaging Technology
Demand for electronic products and services remain strong. Work-from-home, video conferencing, and remote learning are driving datacenter growth and laptop and tablet demand. 5G infrastructure rollout is underway and smartphone sales are returning to normal levels. Automotive sales are increasing. At the same time the industry is experiencing acute shortages of 200mm fab capacity, components, equipment such as wire bonders, substrates, and leadframes. Is the supply chain broken and what can we do to resolve these issues?
Led by Moderator: Eric Gongora

Friends in HI Places...
Enabling the Transition to Heterogeneous Integration
Advancements in substrates and interconnection will be a key requirement in enabling heterogeneous integration (HI) and the gap between device IO or pad densities and substrate interconnect capabilities is expanding. Substrate technology must transition towards the levels of scaling that the semiconductor industry continues to demonstrate which will require both high levels of innovation and investment.
The industry has been addressing these issues and the urgency for new technologies, solutions and supply chains. These have been highlighted due to ABF and advanced substrate supply shortages. This has created major issues for the industry and the cost / availability and yields for the most advanced fcBGA substrates has become a critical issue. As these applications transition to HI, the substrate size and density requirements can pose major obstacles.
This Live Virtual Session will Feature 5 Expert GBC Speakers:
Bill Chen, ASE Group
Bryan Black, AMD
John Lau, Unimicron Technology Corp.
Jan Vardaman, TechSearch International
Santosh Kumar, Yole
Live iNEMI Invited Session
5G Electronics Challenges: High Frequency Materials Characterization
Next-generation 5G communications solutions require ultra-low loss laminate materials and PCBs/substrates for efficient design and manufacturing. However, these materials pose challenges. For example, there is no consistent methodology for measuring transmission loss or Df/Dk, especially for higher frequencies (e.g., >30 GHz). Many different approaches are currently used, requiring different fixtures and test methods, sample preparation, and/or data analysis/extraction. In response, iNEMI members organized the 5G/mmWave Materials Assessment and Characterization project to develop guidelines and best practices for a standardized measurement and test methodology that can be shared with industry and relevant standards organizations.
This session will provide 5 presentations:
Urmi Ray, iNEMI | Challenges for High Dk/Df Measurements
Richard Stephenson, EMD Electronics | Benchmarking Resonator based Low Dk/Df Material Measurements
Magorzata Celuch & Marzena Olszewska-Placha , QWED | Recent Developments of Resonator Measurements for Emerging Materials and Technologies
Nathan Orloff, NIST | High Frequency Measurements Using Wafer Level Techniques
Say Phommakesone, Keysight | Optimizing Measurement Accuracy and Repeatability for High Frequency Measurements
Live Industry-Sponsored Panel
