Keynote speaker – E. Jan Vardaman, President and Founder, TechSearch International

Drivers for Advanced Packaging: 2020 and Beyond

The electronics industry has entered a new era of change.  5G is driving advanced packaging developments in infrastructure and mobile handsets.  Electronic content in automotive applications is increasing dramatically.  Automobiles are on the threshold of a radical change in technology and this is driving advanced packaging technology.  The advanced packaging solution for many of these applications involves heterogeneous integration.  This economic solution addresses the end of silicon scaling.   This presentation examines the trends and the impact on the advanced packaging market, with a discussion of the type of packages that can be expected.
