This panel was conducted to address one of the HIR objectives on How as AMSE/IEEE Thermo-Mechanical& Packaging community can develop roadmap/technology options without compromising IP and without bias?

The panelists addressed the following areas:

  • Is industry leading or misleading the PKG roadmap based on interface standards?
  • Roadmap Fairness to different technologies
  • Can Roadmap Provision the Future?
  • Can Roadmap build on research with misalignment with Si manufacturability and architecture?
  • Can academia produce a valuable proposition to the industry?
