Prof. Ohba is conducting global alliance so-called WOW Alliance and three-dimensional integration (3DI) for the post-scaling since 2007. The bump-free (bumpless) interconnects and ultra-thinning of wafer >5 micrometer technologies for the application of memory-memory and memory-logic 3D stack are developed. His basic interest is production-worthy processes and co-integration to achieve ultra-small Tera-scale devices without sacrificing power efficiency and cost. Prof. Ohba has contributed more than 100 papers through these studies. He is visiting Professor of National Chiao Tung University at Taiwan and a member of the JAP, IEICE, IEEE, EDS, MRS, MAM, IMAPS, and ADMETA, respectively.
Although 3DI including 2.5D system has many benefits in terms of performance and size reduction, it is unavoidable to provide thermal management without sacrifying reliability. Thermal management has been conducted many decades, since semiconductors started. Now the industry is facing serious limitations due to increasing density of 3DI in the computer system.
• Thermal management trends toward high density 3DI
• How to cool high power 2.5D and 3D systems?
• How to optimize performance and size vs cooling in the mobile phone?
• Future trends on Hot Supercomputer
• What leads to Thermal Crisis?
• Limitation of Air cooling and Liquid cooling

The world needs silicon more than ever! This is largely because the applications where sensing, computing, and communication chips are needed is broader than ever, encompassing healthcare, scientific discovery, automotive/transportation, industrial automation, and beyond. Silicon provides specific and critical enablement and differentiation in these applications, through the systems they are built on. This has already driven a change in the ecosystem, where system companies have embraced in-house silicon development. What does this trend mean for silicon innovation and impact, and where might this trend lead us? Is this a renaissance moment, or is it opening up dual/multiple tracks for silicon innovation? What are the differences in the innovation culture across these tracks? What types of innovators are needed to thrive in and maximize the impact of these tracks? How does all of this relate to constraints in the silicon supply chain? This panel brings together innovators across the emerging tracks to provide insights and counter viewpoints – some you would have expected and others you need the insider’s views to appreciate.
