Semiconductor device packaging technology in general, and fan-out wafer-level packaging (FOWLP) / fan-out panel-level packaging (FOPLP) technology in particular, is being driven by the strong cost advantages these advanced packaging technologies offer over the expense of implementing continued Moore's Law progress for sub-10nm semiconductor IC process nodes. Fan-out packaging provides for increased I/O (Input/Output) density for a given semiconductor device while simultaneously supporting smaller packaged die sizes, thereby reducing the amount of space integrated circuit content occupies in handheld consumer electronic products, such as smartphones, wearables, and Internet of Things (IoT) devices.
The INTEVAC MATRIX® is a high-productivity, substrate-independent thin-film processing platform that is well-positioned for multiple fan-out packaging applications. The MATRIX Physical Vapor Deposition (PVD) system offers a much-reduced cost of ownership (COO) over the current PVD process tools being used for Redistribution Layer (RDL) barrier/seed layer applications, and also offers the flexibility to run multiple substrates on the same system, from 300mm wafer-level (round) substrates to panel-level (square or rectangular) substrates, which today are up to 680mm on a side.

IWLPC brings together the semiconductor industry's most respected authorities addressing all aspects of wafer-level, 3D, TSV and integrated system packaging.
Going into its 15th year, the IWLPC is co-produced by Chip Scale Review, the leading international magazine addressing the semiconductor packaging industry, and SMTA, the distinguished global association representing electronic assembly and manufacturing professionals.
The conference comprises three parallel technical tracks with two full days of presentations on wafer-level packaging, 3D integration, and advanced manufacturing and test. Professional development courses, keynote speakers, and panel discussions are offered by world-class experts and enable attendees to broaden their technical knowledge. The technical program includes a two-day expo where 60+ exhibitors showcase their latest technologies and products. The conference provides a collective network of over 800 industry professionals, including vendors from leading semiconductor companies, foundries, and OSATS, as well as key technology, equipment, and materials suppliers in the exhibit area. Attendees will be inspired by the quantity and quality of the featured new developments and emerging technologies. The 15th Annual Conference will be held October 23-25, 2018 in San Jose, CA.
