POWER5 and Packaging Volume 49, Number 4/5, 2005 Click to enlarge
RD 49-4/5
Two new microprocessors, POWER5 and the Cell, are described in the first section of this double issue. Papers included are on POWER5 system architecture, virtualization, operating systems, design verification, and performance. Also included is an overview paper on the Cell (or STI) project. The second section of this issue discusses advanced packaging for microelectronics. Topics include lead-free alloy solders, injection-molded microbumps for interconnections, use of organics in packaging, advanced testing techniques, system-on-a-package, optical interconnects, and a reexamination of Rent’s rule.
