Conceptual Design of Multichip Modules and Systems treats activities which take place at the conceptual and specification level of the design of complex multichip systems. These activities include the formalization of design knowledge (information modeling), tradeoff analysis, partitioning, and decision process capture. All of these functions occur prior to the traditional CAD activities of synthesis and physical design. Inherent in the design of electronic modules are tradeoffs which must be understood before feasible technology, material, process, and partitioning choices can be selected. The lack of a complete set of technology information is an especially serious problem in the packaging and interconnect field since the number of technologies, process, and materials is substantial and selecting optimums is arduous and non-trivial if one truly wants a balance in cost and performance. Numerous tradeoff and design decisions have to be made intelligently and quickly at the beginning of the design cycle before physical design work begins. These critical decisions, made within the first 10% of the total design cycle, ultimately define up to 80% of the final product cost. Conceptual Design of Multichip Modules and Systems lays the groundwork for concurrent estimation level analysis including size, routing, electrical performance, thermal performance, cost, reliability, manufacturability, and testing. It will be useful both as a reference for system designers and as a text for those wishing to gain a perspective on the nature of packaging and interconnect design, concurrent engineering, computer-aided design, and system synthesis.

The drive towards increased packaging density relies on the stacking of die layers in multi-chip modules (MCMs). Extremely high integration density can be achieved with these modules. There are two fundamental methods for maximizing functional density in a MCM. Either the individual die or the entire packaged die layer can be thinned. In both cases, die thinning and packaging methods must be developed. A detailed process for thinning individual die to sub-35 mum is outlined. The process consists of pseudo-wafer lamination, lapping, chemical mechanical planarization (CMP), and die release. A pseudo-wafer is created by adhering die to a glass substrate. Mechanical lapping is used to remove the bulk silicon and reduce die thickness to approximately 50 mum. CMP is used to attain thicknesses of sub-35 mum and remove the silicon damage layer. This process can reliably produce die thinned to sub-35 mum with +/- 1.5 mum total thickness variation (TTV) and good surface characteristics. The die are released from the glass substrate and encapsulated in a dielectric material. Multiple die layers can be stacked to form a MCM. For packaged layer thinning, a method is developed to encapsulate thick die in a dielectric material on a cavity wafer. Frontside processing creates multiple layers of interconnects. The encapsulated die layer is thinned to approximately 75 mum and backside processing is performed. These layers are subsequently bonded and interconnected to create the MCM.

Currently, planners continue to utilize spreadsheets to help determine the capacities of their manufacturing systems. Through the use of simulation, the planners will have a better understanding of how resources are utilized, where bottlenecks are located, and where queues develop. By increasing the frequency of the arriving parts and reducing the lot size, this will result in an increase in resource utilization, a reduction in the WIP, and an increase in throughput.

On September 10-13, 1990, the first international meeting on Microsystem Technologies takes place at the Berlin International Congress Center. Most of the traditional congresses deal with themes that become more and more specific, and only a small part of the scientific world is reflected. The Micro System Technologies is attempting to take the opposite direction: During the last two decades the development of microelectronics was characterized by a tremendous increase of complexity of integrated circuits. At the same time the fields of microoptics and micromechanics have been developed to an advanced state of the art by the application of thin film and semiconductor technologies. The trend of the future development is to increase the integration density by combining the microelectronic, microoptic, and micro mechanic aspects to new complex multifunctional systems, which are able to comprise sensors, actuators, analogue and digital circuits on the same chip or on multichip-modules. Microsystems will lead to extensions of the field of microelectronic applications with important technical alterations and can open new considerable markets. For the realization of economical solutions for microsystems a lot of interdisciplinary cooperation and know-how has to be developed. New materials for sensitive layers, substrates, conducting, semiconducting, or isolating thin films are the basis for the development of new technologies. The increasing complexity leads to increasing interaction among electrical and non-electrical quantities.

Far from being the passive containers for semiconductor devices of the past, the packages in today's high performance computers pose numerous challenges in interconnecting, powering, cooling and protecting devices. While semiconductor circuit performance measured in picoseconds continues to improve, computer performance is expected to be in nanoseconds for the rest of this century -a factor of 1000 difference between on-chip and off-chip performance which is attributable to losses associated with the package. Thus the package, which interconnects all the chips to form a particular function such as a central processor, is likely to set the limits on how far computers can evolve. Multichip packaging, which can relax these limits and also improve the reliability and cost at the systems level, is expected to be the basis of all advanced computers in the future. In addition, since this technology allows chips to be spaced more closely, in less space and with less weight, it has the added advantage of being useful in portable consumer electronics as well as in medical, aerospace, automotive and telecommunications products. The multichip technologies with which these applications can be addressed are many. They range from ceramics to polymer-metal thin films to printed wiring boards for interconnections; flip chip, TAB or wire bond for chip-to-substrate connections; and air or water cooling for the removal of heat.
