MILPITAS, Calif. — SEMI today announced the availability of a free quick start guide to facilitate the onshoring of advanced packaging facilities in the United States and support the region’s buildout of a semiconductor manufacturing supply chain. Offered by SEMI and the UCLA Center for Heterogeneous Integration and Performance Scaling (CHIPS) and funded by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), the Manufacturing Roadmap for Heterogeneous Integration and Electronics Packaging (MRHIEP) highlights critical areas of development needed to establish advanced packaging facilities on U.S. soil.
Based on the Heterogeneous Integration Roadmap (HIR), the guide incorporates a manufacturing approach to implement the HIR. Some 100 chip industry veterans from more than 40 companies collaborated with representatives from academic institutions, industrial consortia, and government agencies to develop the guide.
Addressing hardware and software tools, manufacturing processes, and supplier infrastructure, the guide covers tools, processes, standards, and interdependencies that enable advanced packaging for high-performance computing (HPC), medical, health and wearables applications.
“The MRHIEP drills down into operational objectives by examining current capabilities and highlighting critical areas of development needed for onshored manufacturing to be successful in the U.S.,” said Melissa Grupen-Shemansky, SEMI CTO. “The guide provides vital support for implementation of the HIR, a comprehensive document addressing the global supply chain for heterogenous integration.”
