Invensas Corporation, a leading provider of semiconductor technology solutions and wholly owned subsidiary of Tessera Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq: TSRA), will demonstrate recent advancements and customer applications in Multi-Die Face-Down (xFD TM) products, Bond Via Array (BVA TM) mobile solutions, and 3DIC technologies at the Intel Developer Forum (IDF), Moscone Center West, San Francisco, Sept. 10-12, 2013.
To be exhibited:
- xFD: the company’s latest design wins and product implementations, including tablet and Ultrabook TM solutions from ASUSTeK Computer Inc. featuring SK hynix DRAM memory, Dell Inc. notebooks fabricated by Compal Electronics, Inc., and Intel Xeon-based servers featuring advanced Registered Dual Inline Memory Modules (R-DIMMs). xFD technology connects memory chips in an upside-down shingle-stack configuration, and then interconnects them with ultra-short wire-bonds. The solution significantly reduces component size, increases product bandwidth, speed and power performance, and reduces total system cost by up to 50%.
- BVA: an ultra-high bandwidth Package-on-Package (PoP) solution, brought to high volume market readiness in collaboration with Universal Instruments Corporation (UIC), Kulicke & Soffa Industries, Inc. (K&S), and Celestica Inc., all leaders in their respective industries. BVA technology connects Mobile System on Chip (SOC) processors with their associated mobile memory chips, and delivers significantly greater bandwidth (up to 5 times that of competing solutions), and reduces battery drain, while using existing manufacturing infrastructure.
- 3DIC: novel silicon interposer and 3DIC product demonstrators with Through Silicon Via (TSV) interconnection. Invensas develops pioneering 2.5D and 3D solutions, including fine pitch interposers, advanced TSV plating solutions, and cost optimized process technologies for next generation memory, mobile logic, and sensor products.
Invensas will display the technology in its Booth #231 at the 2013 IDF. More details on Invensas xFD, BVA and 3D solutions can be found at www.invensas.com.
