Heterogeneous Integration Roadmap Workshop, December 2nd, 2016

Heterogeneous Integration Roadmap Workshop

Our Industry has reinvented itself through multiple disruptive changes in technologies, products and markets. We now face new challenges with the slowing of Moore’s Law, the migration o to the Cloud, smart devices everywhere, and Internet of Things to Inbternet of Everything. While the pace of innovation is increasing to meet these challenges, the crucial question is will be the winning directions going forward?

The Heterogeneous Integration Roadmap (HIR), initialed by the IEEE CPMT Society ,and joined with IEEE EDS and Photonics Socidties and SEMI, will follow directly the purpose, process and format of the ITRS Heterogeneous Integration Roadmap (last ITRS 2.0 edition published on July 8th 2016)  for the 15-year assessment of  future requirements. This Heterogeneous Integration Roadmap  will continue the ITRS Heterogeneous Integration and Assembly and Packaging roadmapping workshops held in previous years at ESTC and other CPMT Conferences, while expanding the vision to address the major changes in the market place, and the disruptive changes in technology and the industry.   We invite  EPTC participants to attend this important working session for our profession, our industry and our research community.
