Selected Topics-0017_Hybrid Bonding Technology Portrays Essential Role as Advanced Packaging Continues to Evolve
The utilization of chiplets paired with 2.5D and 3D advanced packaging technology is bound to become one of the inevitable development trends of high-end chips in order to allow a continuous elevation of computing performance for chips according to the Moore’s Law. With that being said, the existing micro-bump bonding technology that could impede high-end chips from fully exerting their performance would have to be replaced by hybrid bonding. This report analyzes development trends of chiplet design and advanced packaging technology on the one hand, and probes into the necessity and development momentum of the hybrid bonding technology on future development of high-end chips on the other hand.

Today, using smartphones to take photos has become a popular way for people to record and share everyday memories. Camera performance has also become an important factor for consumers when deciding to purchase a new smartphone. However, unlike traditional digital single-lens reflex cameras (DSLRs), smartphones are designed to be lightweight and slim. Therefore, adopting a larger CMOS image sensor (CIS) or a heavier lens assembly to improve photoshoot is not practical. To overcome this physical limitation, advanced image signal processors (ISPs) and innovative computational photography algorithms are used to significantly enhance the imaging quality of smartphone cameras. These solutions can effectively compensate for the shortcoming of not being able to incorporate larger optical components into a smartphone camera.
