International Workshop for Advanced System Integration and Packaging

Event Date: December 5, 2023
Location: Purdue University Shively Club at Ross-Ade Stadium
Priority: No
College Calendar: Show
Organized by Purdue University's Atalla Institute for Advanced System Integration and Packaging (ASIP) in partnership with ARI, host of the Si Crossroads ME Commons Hub, imec USA, Cadence and Osaka University.

December 5-6, 2023

As transistor scaling according to Moore’s law slows, future applications will require novel system integration solutions to achieve performance, power, and cost tradeoffs while ensuring efficient power conversion and delivery, signal and power integrity, sustainability, testability, and security goals. Increasingly, future electronic systems for computing, mobile communications, IoT, automotive, defense and biological applications will rely on advanced integration of separately manufactured chiplets into a 2.5D/3D System-in-Package (SiP).

At this workshop, internationally acclaimed industry and academic leaders will address the challenges to research, “lab-to-fab” translation and workforce necessary to build the future microelectronic systems. The challenges include system architectural and physical design enabled by multiphysics modeling tools, high-density interposers and substrates, process development for interconnect pitch scaling, and thermal solution design, all while meeting the reliability and manufacturing yield goals. The workshop will bring together IDMs, fabless companies, EDA companies, tool vendors, materials suppliers, OSATs, National Labs and university academics to describe current capabilities, identify future challenges, and to develop partnerships in pursuit of future programmatic opportunities.

About Microelectronics Research and Education at Purdue University:

College of Engineering at Purdue University is ranked 4th in the US and graduates more engineers than the top three ranked institutions combined. Purdue’s excellence at scale is exemplified by the many national and international microelectronic research centers at Purdue that have received over $250 million in research funding. Specifically, in Advanced System Integration and Packaging, Purdue hosts five centers that together conduct nearly $90 million in research. Purdue University, through its expert faculty, is actively involved in guiding the formulation of the CHIPS Act R&D programs and is vigorously engaged with industry partners on all elements of CHIPS Act programs.

Complementary to the research mission, Purdue created the nation’s first MS degree program in semiconductors, with more than 55 Purdue faculty members teaching over 100 courses on semiconductors and advanced packaging. Purdue’s educational innovations to motivate talented undergraduate students to pursue careers in semiconductors include the freshmen-level seminar course “Changing the World with Chips - Introduction to Semiconductors,” and a unique eight-week hands-on experience in chip design and fabrication termed “Summer Training, Awareness, and Readiness for Semiconductors (STARS).” More information at
