ASE, SPIL developing low-cost IC substrates
Development of low cost IC substrates for mobile application.
Advanced Semiconductor Engineering (ASE) and Siliconware Precision Industries (SPIL) have both developed low-cost IC substrates to satisfy demand from mobile chip suppliers, which are seeking to further lower their costs for solutions targeted at entry-level and mid-range devices, according to industry sources.
SPIL started shipping low-cost Flip-Chip (FC) substrates to MediaTek for chip solutions used in handsets and tablets in the second quarter of 2013, said the sources. Rival ASE kicked off volume shipments of its low-cost IC substrate solutions in the third quarter, striving for orders from MediaTek and other chip firms, the sources indicated.
