Topic: Enabling Specialty Technologies and Advanced Packaging Solutions to Improve the Functionality and Performance of Electronic Systems
As technology node scaling becomes increasingly complex and expensive, an increasing number of semiconductor manufacturers and foundries are turning to the development of specialty technologies and advanced packing solutions to deliver increased system functionality and performance whilst managing development costs.
Specialty technologies such as sensors (MEMS, CIS and IR Sensors), RF Devices, optoelectronics, advanced power semiconductors (MOSFETs and IGBTs), and Bipolar-CMOS-DMOS (BCD) power management ICs are key to enabling applications in consumer electronics, automotive electronics, IoT applications and cellular communications; including 5G. This trend means that by 2023 these specialty technologies will account for approximately 30% of all global IC demand1.
At the same time, this high cost of scaling single ship solutions is also driving development of heterogeneous chip integration using advanced packaging. These heterogenous integration schemes are focussed on bringing together multiple chips and functions in a single package. While conceptually very similar to multi-chip modules, recent developments deploy a strategy of using advanced wafer manufacturing technologies to meet the ever-increasing performance and form factor requirements.
This presentation will talk about the trends in specialty technologies and heterogenous integration through advanced packaging as well as how the technical challenges associated with these applications can be addressed by high volume CMOS manufacturing solutions.

Topic: Advanced Packaging Trends in Semiconductors
The semiconductor industry is at a critical junction where advancements in 5G, IoT, Networking and Automotive segments are dependent on our industry to provide a viable solution. Many of these potential options are ‘system based’ solutions, where the whole system needs to meet the requirements of the application. Packaging is an integral part of designing these complex solutions. Semiconductor packaging has become more critical as process geometries have shrunk and performance and thermal challenges depend heavily on packaging characteristics and materials. Advanced packaging is also critical in other emerging markets such as AI, data centers, high performance computing, infotainment and autonomous driving. Outsourced Semiconductor Assembly and Test (OSAT) companies play a crucial role in creating value by partnering with our customers to provide engineering innovation, develop a sustainable supply chain of materials and invest in scalable manufacturing and test to enable and deliver these products.
This presentation will discuss the trends and challenges of the advanced packaging ecosystem and the value creation role OSAT’s play.

Title: Taiwan Memory Industry’s Future: Hidden Champion
In this presentation, we will review the limitation of Taiwan’s memory industries, for both DRAM and Flash. The Fundamental issues are lagging technologies, which make the typical memory companies’ strategies not working. However, if we utilize the advantages from our strength, more dynamic industries with smaller scale, there are opportunities for us to thrive to prosperity. The path is generally described as the Hidden Champion.
The Hidden Champion approach requires the company to excel in the selected industry segments with leading advantages, from technologies, business strategies, or customer service. These advantages will only come from consciously building up through the years until some entry barriers are established.
In addition, the Hidden Champion also typically survey the global market to expand into unique market segments where its unique strength delivers unfair advantages for the companies. Also the Hidden Champion is best utilizing the global resources especially talents.

Title: From Edge to Cloud: RISC-V with DSP, Vector and Custom Instructions for AI
Edge and Cloud Computing are in the corner, getting popular, yet their implementation are emerging and new designs are on the way to production. In this presentation, Andes RISC-V Cores with extensibility and modularity allowing designers to use RISC-V cores and eco-system for all of the workloads will be introduced. Andes AI customers adopt RISC-V Cores with applications from edge to cloud. An overview regarding how to leverage the RISC-V DSP extension for low-data volume workloads like voice and face recognition with low power will be presented. For high data throughput applications, we will introduce the industry-first commercial RISC-V Vector Processor solution and how it can be used to speed up compute-intensive applications. Then, how to leverage RISC-V’s strength to allow custom instruction extensions by leveraging Andes Custom Extension (ACE) will be introduced.

Director & Principal Analyst, Packaging, Assembly, Substrates & Semiconductor Manufacturing, Yole Development
Santosh Kumar is currently working as Director & Principal Analyst at Yole Développement. He is involved in the market, technology and strategic analysis of the microelectronic assembly and packaging technologies. His main interest areas are advanced IC packaging technology including equipment & materials. He is the author of several reports on fan-out / fan-in WLP, flip chip, and 3D/2.5D packaging.

He has published more than 40 papers in peer reviewed journals and has obtained 2 patents. He has presented and given talks at numerous conferences and technical symposiums related to advanced microelectronics packaging.
Title: Future of Fan-out WLP/PLP business: Myth vs Reality
Fan-out packaging is not new, and it has been adopted in mobile devices for more than 10 years. However, it has attracted lot of attention since 2015, when Apple adopted TSMC’s InFO technology for iphone A10 application processor (AP). It was speculated, other key fabless players will soon adopt InFO or other high-density fan-out technology for flagship mobile AP by replacing laminate substrate-based flip-chip PoP. But it has not happened, even though already qualified by various fabless players. What are the reasons? Do we see other players adopt high density fan-out for mobile AP in near future? After a steady growth, we recently saw the decline in the low-density fan-out (eWLB type) business. What is the current status and prospect? TSMC is clearly emerged as the winner in the high-density fan-out with multiple design offerings. Is there any challenge to them from other OSATs /foundries/IDMs? What is the status of fan-out at other manufacturers? Fan-out PLP has also generated lots of interest and many players are working on it including tool/materials suppliers. Samsung /SEMCO started FO-PLP HVM with Galaxy watch AP. Will Samsung adopt FO-PLP for flagship phone AP? What is the FO-PLP status at other manufacturers (OSATS/IDMs)? Will the FO PLP business significantly increase in the coming years as ASE and PTI increase capex by bringing additional PLP capacity online? This presentation will try to answer these questions and overview the overall activity happening in fan-out WLP/PLP ecosystem.
