USHIO INC. (TOKYO:6925) (President and CEO: Shiro Sugata) today announced that at SEMICON West 2014 (Booth #2105) the company will exhibit a series of its lithography tools for advanced packaging applications, including the UX7-3Di LIS 350 stepper for 3D/2.5D silicon interposers, through a panel display as well as propose solutions for the challenges of next-generation packaging applications. SEMICON West 2014 is being held on July 8 through July 10 at Moscone Center in San Francisco, California.
Today, 3D packaging applications that use through-silicon via (TSV) and 2.5D/2.1D packaging applications have been spotlighted as the emerging technologies for higher integration of semiconductor devices. Maintaining an optimum balance between technologies and cost for volume production has become one of major challenges for these next-generation packaging applications. In order to provide the best solution for this challenge, USHIO’s UX7-3Di LIS 350 stepper for 3D/2.5D silicon interposers achieves significant cost reduction with its unparalleled performance including single-shot exposure of large substrate areas, high throughput, and high resolution of 2 µm L/S (Line and Space).
In addition, USHIO will exhibit the Square 70 panel stepper for organic and glass interposers for further enhancement of productivity with a large shot size of 78 mm x 68 mm; the Align 600 maskless scanner for fan-out WLP enabling alignment at 600 points to achieve high yield; and the UX4 series full-field projection aligners for LED, MEMS device, and power device applications. In addition to these lithography tools, USHIO is introducing its next-generation packaging solution that leverages a large-field precision projection lens (currently under development) which can produce a super-high resolution of 1 µm L/S.
“The next-generation packaging technologies have been spotlighted as the demand for smartphones and tablet PCs has been skyrocketing. To meet such demanding needs, we have leased and installed a projection aligner dedicated to developing 2.5D glass interposers at the Georgia Tech 3D Systems Packaging Research Center (GT-PRC) in Georgia Institute of Technology by dispatching an engineer. We have aimed at achieving large-area patterning with the target resolution of 1 through 5 µm L/S, and will show some good results at SEMICON West 2014,” commented Masayuki Itaba, General Manager of the Exposure Business Unit, USHIO INC.
USHIO believes that it will be able to provide optimum solutions for the challenges faced by users by integrating its lithography technologies specializing in next-generation packaging applications. Please visit USHIO Booth #2105 at SEMICON West 2014 to confirm its solutions.

A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage. It has become clear that we'll need much higher efficiency user experiences that can allow us to more easily and scalably work with the thousands of devices that will soon be in each of our lives. Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, whic...

Cognitive Computing is becoming the foundation for a new generation of solutions that have the potential to transform business. Unlike traditional approaches to building solutions, a cognitive computing approach allows the data to help determine the way applications are designed. This contrasts with conventional software development that begins with defining logic based on the current way a business operates. In her session at 18th Cloud Expo, Judith S. Hurwitz, President and CEO of Hurwitz & ...

As software becomes more and more complex, we, as software developers, have been splitting up our code into smaller and smaller components. This is also true for the environment in which we run our code: going from bare metal, to VMs to the modern-day Cloud Native world of containers, schedulers and micro services. While we have figured out how to run containerized applications in the cloud using schedulers, we've yet to come up with a good solution to bridge the gap between getting your contain...

For basic one-to-one voice or video calling solutions, WebRTC has proven to be a very powerful technology. Although WebRTC’s core functionality is to provide secure, real-time p2p media streaming, leveraging native platform features and server-side components brings up new communication capabilities for web and native mobile applications, allowing for advanced multi-user use cases such as video broadcasting, conferencing, and media recording.

WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video. The handling of “data” has been limited to text chat and file download – all other data sharing seems to end with screensharing. What is holding back a more intensive use of peer-to-peer data? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, WebRTC Applications Team Lead at National ICT Australia, looked at differ...

Without a clear strategy for cost control and an architecture designed with cloud services in mind, costs and operational performance can quickly get out of control. To avoid multiple architectural redesigns requires extensive thought and planning. Boundary (now part of BMC) launched a new public-facing multi-tenant high resolution monitoring service on Amazon AWS two years ago, facing challenges and learning best practices in the early days of the new service. In his session at 19th Cloud Exp...
