The driving forces behind the development of three-dimensional packaging technology are similar to the MCM technology, although the requirements for the 3D technology are more aggressive. These requirements include the need for significant size and weight reductions, higher performance, small delay, higher reliability and, potentially, reduced power consumption.
Section will discuss the advantages of 3D packaging technology and its effect on system performance. Section will provide a brief discussion of the different vertical interconnection methods used in 3D packaging, while section will address the limitations of the 3D technology. Section will provide a discussion.
