ieee-phoenix-section-cpmt-society-chapter-november-16-2016-meeting-prof-muhannad-s-bakir2.5D and 3D IC Technology for Electronic Microsystems: Design Considerations and Experimental Demonstrations

Dr. Muhannad S. Bakir

Professor, School of Electrical & Computer Engineering, Georgia Institute of Technology

ABSTRACT

http://sites.ieee.org/phoenix/files/2016/11/IEEE-Phoenix-Section-CPMT-Society-Chapter-November-16-2016-Meeting-Prof.-Muhannad-S.-Bakir.pdf

This presentation will address innovative interconnection and integration technologies for electronic microsystems. First, we discuss a highly scaled through-silicon via (TSV) technology for fine-grain heterogeneous electronic integration; we demonstrate TSVs with diameter of less than 1-micron for a wide range of applications. Next, we present innovative thermal solutions for 2.5D and 3D integration platforms using microfluidic cooling; the performance of a 28 nm CMOS FPGA with monolithic microfluidic cooling is demonstrated. Moreover, we analyze the thermal implication of silicon bridge technology in 2.5D systems. We also describe innovative ‘thermal isolation’ technologies in which thermal coupling between 3D IC stacks is minimized using an air-gap isolation and mechanically flexible interconnects. Lastly, an innovative sacrificial micro-fabricated self-alignment technology is also discussed as part of this application (sub-1 micron alignment accuracy is demonstrated without the use of a flip-chip bonder).
