SoP CSP FHE Bluetooth Low Energy Sensor Platform (Printed Electronics USA 2019)

Mr Douglas R. Hackler, President/CEO
American Semiconductor, Inc.
United States

Presentation Summary

IC packages are getting thinner to facilitate thinner devices. Labels and tags are getting smarter, boards with embedded ICs are being developed and low profile requirements are needed to maximize product assemblies. Wireless electronics is starting to bend. Semiconductor-on-Polymer (SoP) Chip Scale Packaging (CSP) is enabling ultra-thin flexible hybrid Bluetooth Low Energy™ (BLE) electronics and sensors today. This presentation shares the development of SoP CSP based on Nordic Semiconductor's BLE SOCs, direct interconnect (DI) assembly and the FHE sensor system platform demonstrations. The presentation also shows the new production capacity for SoP based FHE and the technology roadmap for SoP application to IC packaging.
