IC Packaging Trends
and
Specifications on Assembly Reliability

SPEAKER
Reza Ghaffarian, Ph.D.
Principal Engineer
Jet Propulsion Laboratory

PRESENTATION ABSTRACT
For five decades, the semiconductor industry has distinguished itself from other industries by continuously shrinking ICs. This has enabled functional improvement (Moore's Law) and allowed IC shrinkage for a much lower cost. The problem now is that IC shrinkage hit a brick wall. In response, a new paradigm shift is emerging: we're no longer shrinking the IC, instead industry is focusing on shrinking the packaging through stacking and system integration. This talk presents IC packaging shrinkages/trends from ball grid arrays to stack packaging technologies. As the chair of IPC 6-10 d task, the presenter has been involved in generating numerous specifications on assembly reliability of advanced electronic packaging using tin-lead/lead-free solder alloy. These specifications and the key requirements will also be reviewed.

SPEAKER PROFILE
Dr. Reza Ghaffarian has more than 30 years of industrial and academic experience. For the last 20 years at NASA/JPL, he led R&D reliability and quality assurance activities in advanced electronic packaging and has been a consultant resource for most JPL projects including Mars Curiosity Rover. He has received many awards including the NASA Exception Service Medal for outstanding leadership and industrial partnership. He has authored more than 150 technical papers, 7 book chapters, two guidelines, and co-edited a CSP book. He serves as technical Advisor/Committee to IPC, Microelectronics Journal, SMTA, IMAPS and IEEE IEMT/CPMT. He received his Ph.D. in 1982 from University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA).
