The amount of chips used in end-user products is still rising and the complexity of the chips is constantly increasing which requires new test and handling solutions. Despite the overall uncertainty in the markets -- especially in the automobile industry and its supply chain – the year 2012 was satisfactory -- however on low levels. Given the more optimistic signs we observe in China, the U.S. and Europe we are confident to see ...

For several years companies around the United States have been on-shoring jobs that were previously sent overseas. Companies who have off-shored in the past have experienced quality problems, communication issues, intellectual property issues and increasing shipping costs. The White House has promised to provide incentives for businesses to bring jobs back from China, Japan and Mexico to the United States ...

After the rosy promises of multiple, low-cost 2.5D and 3D stacked semiconductors in 2012, reality has set in. It now looks like 2013 is the year when larger scale implementation of 2.5D and 3D into the two main driving applications will occur. The most interesting conflicts are: The increasingly vertically-leveraged TSMC, and their widely adopted chip-on-wafer-on-silicon process, versus the myriad other assembly techniques from ...

After a pause in 2012, we expect the semiconductor industry to resume at least a moderate growth rate. The primary driver will continue to be the "smart" consumer appliances we are all familiar with -- phones, tablets, e-books. With smart phone penetration only ~40% worldwide and only ~50% in the US, there is still ample room to grow.Packaging and test of the ever-increasing circuit densities these applications demand will keep us ...
