  8. 8. S3IP builds multidisciplinary collaborations<br />The Center of Excellence collaborates with researchers from the Center for Advanced Sensors and Environmental Systems, the Institute for Materials Research and the Watson Institute for Systems Excellence, all of which are part of Binghamton University.<br />
  9. 9. Integrated Electronics Engineering Center (IEEC)<br />A New York State Center for Advanced Technology (NYSTAR)<br />Electronics packaging can enable or limit new systems and applications in fields such as computers, telecommunications, life sciences, security and defense. <br />The market push for greater functional power in smaller and smaller spaces can only be met through advances in packaging.<br />The IEEC performs leading-edge research in electronics packaging and transfers those results to the packaging industry in New York State and beyond.<br />
  10. 10. IEEC research thrusts<br />Current research thrusts at the IEEC that solve problems for industry include:<br />Electrical analysis<br />Mechanical analysis and testing<br />Solder analysis <br />Thermal science<br />Underfill science<br />Micromechanics<br />Photomechanics <br />Failure mechanisms<br />
  11. 11. IEEC emerging research thrusts<br /><ul><li>Packaging for medical applications
  12. 12. Packaging for energy applications
  13. 13. Packaging of flexible electronics
  14. 14. New materials for electronic systems
  15. 15. Chip stacks with Through Silicon Vias (TSV)
  16. 16. New analytical and experimental tools to analyze electronic systems </li></li></ul><li>Center for Advanced Microelectronics Manufacturing (CAMM)<br />The Center for Advanced Microelectronics Manufacturing was established as an R&D center with an award from the Flex Tech Alliance to a team from Binghamton University, Endicott Interconnect and Cornell University.<br />The CAMM:<br />Demonstrates the feasibility of roll-to-roll (R2R) electronics manufacturing by acquiring prototype tools and establishing processes to produce low-volume, test bed products in partnership with industry.<br />Addresses R2R fundamental enabling technologies and sciences.<br />Develops flexible components for medical applications, military and homeland security, displays, electronics, energy and telecommunications.<br />
  17. 17. CAMM facilities<br />The CAMM’s unique $17 million facilities, hosted by Endicott Interconnect Technologies, are an example of successful university-industry collaboration.<br />The Panel Microfabrication Laboratory:<br />Offers large area photolithography and sputtering<br />Is suitable for prototyping and early development<br />The R2R Laboratory:<br />Clean room project <br />Azores Photolithography <br />ECD Defect Inspection<br />Bobst/GV High Vacuum Deposition <br />CHA High Vacuum Deposition<br />
  18. 18. CAMM research<br />Why pursue roll-to-roll manufacturing? <br />R2R can be less expensive and can enable new applications:<br />Inexpensive displays<br />Large area displays<br />Low-cost RFID<br />Remote sensors<br />“Smart” fabrics<br />Large-area lighting <br />
  19. 19. Center for Autonomous Solar Power (CASP)<br />The Center for Autonomous Solar Power aims to capitalize on the sun’s energy as a flexible, large-area and low-cost power source.<br />CASP, which has received millions of dollars in federal funding:<br />Develops flexible, low-cost solar cells.<br />Creates integrated energy-storage and low-cost installation solutions.<br />Fosters university-industry relationships.<br />Provides leading-edge technology for the defense, aerospace, consumer and industrial markets.<br />
