SK hynix, Inc., Amkor Technology, Inc., eSilicon, Northwest Logic and Avery Design Systems Announce “Start your HBM/2.5D Design Today” Seminar

The seminar will present a complete HBM supply chain solution

San Jose, California — February 4, 2016 — SK hynix, Inc. (“SK hynix”), Amkor Technology, Inc., eSilicon, Northwest Logic and Avery Design Systems have joined forces to offer a complete High Bandwidth Memory (HBM) supply chain solution. HBM is a JEDEC-defined standard that utilizes 2.5D technology to interconnect a SoC and a HBM memory stack. Many companies are already using HBM to create very high-bandwidth, low-power products. This seminar will present a complete HBM supply chain that is delivering and supporting customer HBM designs now.

The seminar will be held on Wednesday, March 9, 2016 at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, California. The event will begin at 4PM Pacific time and conclude with a wine and beer reception that will include interactive demonstrations from 6PM to 7PM.

“HBM is scaling the DRAM technology to a new level where high performance, low power and small form factor are all delivered with one solution. SK hynix is excited to be in the vanguard of developing the HBM technology and accelerating HBM adoption,” said Kevin Tran, Senior Manager of Technical Marketing at SK hynix America Inc., an US subsidiary of SK hynix.

According to Ron Huemoeller, Amkor Technology, Inc.’s corporate vice president of R&D, “Amkor Technology has worked closely with our customers to implement HBM into their high-performance computing products from the early stages of development through final product launch, as part of our overall 2.5D through-silicon via (TSV) platform. This has allowed us to both have significant impact on determining the supply chain process flow, as well as provide the necessary critical services of MEOL interposer processing and SoC + HBM + interposer assembly and test. We look forward to sharing our expertise in these key areas to help promote a wider adoption of HBM into more products going forward.”

“eSilicon is currently supporting several HBM customers using its HBM PHY and advanced ASIC design and packaging capabilities,” said Mike Gianfagna, eSilicon’s vice president of marketing. “I’m delighted that 2.5D in the form of HBM is really here now. We are proud to present this work alongside our supply chain partners.”

“Northwest Logic’s highly configurable HBM Controller is being used in a wide range of high-performance HBM applications. This seminar provides a great opportunity to quickly get up to speed on HBM and learn how it can be used to create highly differentiated end-market products,” said Brian Daellenbach, president of Northwest Logic.

“Avery provides HBM memory models that enable HBM-based SoC and PHY designs to be robustly verified and performance-optimized quickly and effectively,” said Chris Browy, vice president of sales and marketing for Avery Design.
