Assembly of a Frequency Modulated Continuous Wave LIDAR system

Peter Harmsma, Scientist at TNO

This presentation focuses on the architecture and realization of a photonics LIDAR system.

Peter Harmsma holds a PhD in integrated photonics (TU Delft, 2000). In his current position as senior scientist nano photonics at TNO he has worked in particular on photonic sensor applications such as biosensors, metrology, spectroscopy and lidar. TNO acts as a platform-agnostic photonic system house, and works with various foundries in InP, SiN and SOI for the realization and testing of prototypes.

Semiconductor trends in lighting industry

Patrick van den Heuvel, R&D Manager at Signify

Since the introduction of electronics for more efficiently driving conventional discharge lamps the use and variety of applied semiconductors has increased a lot, especially with the transitions to LED and connected lighting. As the next challenges for the lighting industry become visible, how can the semiconductor industry continue to play an important role.

Patrick van den Heuvel has an electronics background with a major in telecommunications. He has over 20 years’ experience in applying different kind of semiconductors in lighting electronic power supplies. Responsible as R&D Manager within Signify Research for driving new electronic concepts and designs to be used across different (connected) LED lighting applications such as lamps and luminaires.



Backend lithography challenges for more than Moore devices

Jeroen de Boeij, System Architect at Kulicke & Soffa

There are two main trends in backend semiconductor industry for lithography. The first is the ever increasing IO density in packages and the second is the large variety of approaches to create more than Moore packages. The role of lithography in these two trends will be the topic of this presentation.

Jeroen de Boeij is system architect at Kulicke & Soffa and member of the management team of the Lithography BU. He has been working in the semicon industry since 2009. Within the lithography BU he is responsible for the R&D program.

How laser is enabling the semiconductor roadmap

Jeroen van Borkulo, Head of Business & Marketing at ASM Laser Separation International

The trend in the semiconductor industry is to make the substrates thinner and the active layers thicker. This development results in the end of life for the conventional dicing technology. Laser dicing has proven capability to separate these challenging and novel wafer technologies. ASMPT is working with technology leading semiconductor companies to support their roadmap towards AI and heterogenous integration for semiconductor.

Jeroen van Borkulo has a technical Physics background with a major in Photonics. Over 25 year experience in laser material processing and more than 20 years specifically in semiconductor materials. Responsible within ASMPT as Head of business development & marketing for the laser processing systems. Several Papers and Patents on multi beam laser dicing.

The use of integrated photonics for precision sensing

Pim Pim Kat, Chief Executive Officer at Amazec Photonics

The presentation will show the paradigm shift in sensing resolution, speed and number of sensors in one optical fiber by the use of integrated photonics chips and new architectures. A topic will be the need for further integration of functionality of optical chips and the combination of optics and electronics in a hybrid solution.

Pim Kat has a background in mechanical engineering. He worked as researcher at Hoogovens in the field of computer controlled motion (what is now mechatronics). He started his own company Technobis in 1996.

Technobis Group in 2014 consists of three companies Technobis Mechatronics (development and supply of OEM instruments), Technobis Fibre Technologies (sensing systems based on Integrated Optics) and Technobis IPPS (packaging services for integrated optical chips) and acquired Avantium Crystallization Systems in 2015. Besides being the CEO of the Group, Pim was and still is involved in most of the R&D work for integrated photonics sensing. After the acquisition of the majority of the shares of Technobis Group by Active Capital Company, Pim co-founded Amazec Photonics BV focusing on the development and production of an  integrated photonics based sensing system for the early detection of heart failure.

Perspectives on emerging and disruptive technologies for microelectronics

Marcel Grooten, Managing Director at DoMicro

The presentation will highlight some new emerging (additive) technologies that could create new and disruptive effects in manufacturing of micro-electronics. Inkjet printing, electrohydrodynamic printing as well as other approaches like minimal fab are discussed.

Marcel Grooten has a passion for new technologies and high-tech industry. Seasoned in Solar, Semicon and high-tech manufacturing equipment, he is leveraging his profound knowledge, over 30 years of experience and vast network to recognize and shape new opportunities. Raised within Royal Philips Electronics and engaged in several start-up companies, Marcel is now driving innovation to market out of scale up DoMicro BV

Flux-less Thermocompression Bonding of Large Area Dies with High Density Interconnects Via In-Situ Oxide Reduction

Andreas Marte, Senior Principal Engineer at Kulicke & Soffa

Heterogeneous integration drives an aggressive interconnect pitch roadmap, enabling more efficient and higher bandwidth packages and, therefore, pushing the limits of Advanced Packaging technologies. New interconnect technologies such as Hybrid Bonding are emerging, however, Thermocompression Bonding (TCB) based on solder micro-bumps remains the well-established and cost effective fine-pitch interconnect process. TCB typically requires the application of flux and post-bond flux cleaning which becomes more and more difficult for increasing die size and with bump pitch and stand-off height shrinking even further. K&S developed and demonstrated a flux-less TCB process for large and high-density interconnect die that utilizes in-situ Formic Acid (FA) vapor application for solder oxide reduction. This process obsoletes post-bond flux cleaning and, therefore, eliminates flux residue related underfill and package reliability issues. The FA delivery system can be integrated on our high-accuracy C2S and C2W TCB tools, leveraging the existing HVM TCB infrastructure for super fine pitch applications down to 10µm.

Andreas Marte is a Senior Principal Systems Engineer in the Advanced Packaging BU of Kulicke & Soffa. He holds a PhD in Physics (TU Munich, 2003) and has been working in the Semicon industry since 2004.
