System-on-a-Chip and Packaging

Vol. 46, No. 6, 2002

Order No. G322-0233
The continued decrease in CMOS transistor size and the corresponding increase in the number of components per chip have led to a significant increase in the number of functions that can be placed on a single chip and to the challenges in packaging very high-performance systems utilizing these chips. The first topic of this issue, systems on a chip (SoCs), includes three papers that describe approaches to chip architecture and design methodology and one paper on the organization and testing of a chip with 40 MB of embedded DRAM memory. The second topic consists of five papers on packaging of large computer systems. Included is an overview of packaging, power, and cooling of large systems, and papers on packaging of multichip modules, on cooling using refrigeration, and on land grid array sockets for interconnections between modules and circuit boards.
