  • 1. Memory Applications: Packaging & Integration Trends – 2009 Report – How 3-D integration will challenge and reshape the memory industry Infineon Nokia © 2009 Copyrights © Yole Développement SARL. All rights reserved.
  • 2. Macro Industry Trends • Wireless is everywhere, growing and enabling new market segments (smart- phones, net books, pocket computing devices) – CONNECTIVIY and INTEGRATION are the main drivers • Demands for data is increasing as well: – Faster pipes, more pipes (WAN, LAN, PAN), performance, concurrency – HD multimedia is coming • Complexity and concurrency require improved power consumption and are stressing current architectures: – Need for more efficient interconnect methods for pin count relief and low power consumption • As a results, everything is pointing to more and more “local” memory/storage at the device level – More and more quantity and get memory closer to logic for higher performance – Cloud computing could remove the need for increasing “memory storage” content at the device level. However, this will not happen before many years from now (> 2015) © 2009 • 2 Copyrights © Yole Développement SARL. All rights reserved.

  • 4. Memory Applications / Markets TODAY: • RAM memories are historically driven by computing applications (desktop computers, server engines…) • NOR Flash is mostly used to store and have fast reading access to OS data (applications of operating systems)  used in most of today‟s consumer devices (cell-phone, DSCs, portable media players, printers…) • NAND Flash has emerged recently for storage based applications in most consumer applications TOMOROW: • New generation memories (PRAM, FeRAM, MRAM..) are being developed and introduced on the market for potential replacement of NOR Flash & SRAM into embedded memory applications • “Solid State” memory is the next killer application for adoption of NAND Flash in volume: – SSDs to replace HDD (hard disk magnetic drives) mainly in: • Personal computing markets (notebooks, net book, MIDs …) • Enterprise / Data server markets – General memory content also growing in Multimedia / Gaming / Micro-Cards applications – New package technologies are needed to adapt to tighter footprint requirements (e.g. 3D TSV) • RAM (SRAM / DRAM) memory integration is driven by computing / wireless Logic application: – DDR3 / DDR4 DRAM: TSV soon require to answer to density versus bandwidth limitation – Wireless Logic  Trend is to combine into one single package all memory content in order to control: • Multi-mode cellular communication devices (related to GSM / 3G / LTE: Analog & digital baseband chips) • Multimedia and computing devices (related to Application processor and graphic accelerator chips) • Wireless connectivity devices (related to Bluetooth, WLAN, GPS, NFC chips) – Computing Logic  Trend to stack high capacities of DRAM cache memories for next generation computing perf. • CPU/GPU graphic engines applications • HPC, Server, FPGAs… © 2009 • 4 Copyrights © Yole Développement SARL.

  • 6. Impact on Memory Packaging & Integration • Memory ASPs will continue to decrease and will reach their “cost versus density” limits with latest advancements of lithography technology (45nm, 32nm to 22nm node?) • On the other hand, memory packaging and integration is becoming more and more challenging for different reasons: – NAND Flash memory quantity is increasing fast in data storage applications especially (SSDs, Micro-SD cards, MCP/SiP/PoP packages): stringent density and form factor requirements to stack more silicon in ever less space – NOR Flash will be progressively replaced by NAND+SRAM combination and New generation memories (e.g. PC-RAM) – RAM based memories: • Memory integration of RAM memories (on-chip, in-package…) is growing fast: DRAM product usage is mostly doubling Year to Year, especially in mobile / nomadic devices • Interfacing Logic to external DRAM is more and more difficult due to increasing requirements on bandwidth, performance, power consumption and pin-counts accessibility: – Possibility for Fan-out WLP integration in some portion of the low-end DRAM market – Integration of DRAM in stacked memories SiP packages (FC-BGAs, POP…): new package & interconnect technologies are needed to adapt to tighter footprint requirements (e.g. 3-D TSV interconnects) – Embedded RAM: o Embedded DRAM is already available today, but still “emerging”  Driven by performance motivations („CPU + memory‟ or „Baseband + memory‟ that are stacked in a face to face manner)  eDRAM with TSVs are coming soon (> 2010) and will enable higher performance and bandwidth first and will provide later on direct access / interfacing to the external “cache memory” SiP package o Managing internal SRAM memory in Wireless Logic SOC applications is still possible but die sizes are expanding with time: cost impact is becoming more and more critical  Efficient re-partioning of memory content will be needed at some point: • Embedded memories holds promising future by stacking both eDRAM and eFlash on top of 3D- SOCs for Cost driven motivations • Not yet area/cost effective  but coming soon! © 2009 • 6 Copyrights © Yole Développement SARL.
