VDC, Circuits Assembly Conduct 3D Chip Scale Packaging Market Study

6/4/2004 - Venture Development Corporation (VDC), a technology market research firm, and Circuits Assembly, a surface-mount and electronics assembly publication, are launching a multi-client market research study analyzing global market opportunities for 3D chip scale packaging solutions. Pre-publication sponsorship is available now.

This research program is based on extensive telephone interviews with suppliers, integrators, and other 3D packaging market participants. Key program deliverables will include:

Lisa Bastin, Editor-In-Chief of Circuits Assembly, says, "Although 3D chip scale packaging exceeds many performance demands and looks promising, there are still challenges that lie ahead such as cost and integration issues. We are excited to team with VDC to find answers to these issues and create a roadmap for the industry."

Rick Barnard, Practice Director of VDC's Electronic Components and Advanced Materials group, says, "As the technology landscape becomes more mobile-oriented and time-to-market challenges increase, system designers are faced with finding the optimal combination of form and function. This study will address important issues surrounding the 3D chip scale packaging opportunity by providing a granular, relevant market analysis with technical and developmental considerations."

Circuits Assembly will be sharing with VDC their expertise of the industry to assist the research effort. Circuits Assembly's assistance will:

About 3D Chip Scale Packaging
3D chip scale packaging refers to the vertical (Z-axis) stacking of multiple die within a package, or multiple packages, using specialized substrates and interconnects. Driven generally by wireless application markets, 3D chip scale packaging solutions will play a vital role in meeting performance and size requirements for future generations of mobile electronics. As portable products become smaller, lighter, and more feature-rich, the vertical stacking techniques employed in 3D chip scale packaging solutions will provide tremendous value by expanding and exceeding package miniaturization efforts to date, allowing increased functionality and reliability on the system level.
