The first encompassing treatise of this new and very important field puts the known physical limitations for classic 2D microelectronics

into perspective with the requirements for further microelectronics developments and market necessities. This two–volume handbook

presents 3D solutions to the feature density problem, addressing all important issues, such as wafer processing, die bonding, packaging

technology, and thermal aspects. It begins with an introductory part, which defines necessary goals, existing issues and relates 3D integration

to the semiconductor roadmap of the industry. Before going on to cover processing technology and 3D structure fabrication strategies in

detail. This is followed by fields of application and a look at the future of 3D integration.

The editors have assembled contributions from key academic and industrial players in the field, including Intel, Micron, IBM, Infineon,

Qimonda, NXP, Philips, Toshiba, Semitool, EVG, Tezzaron, Lincoln Labs, Fraunhofer, RPI, IMEC, CEA–LETI and many others.
