DescriptionThe First Memory product with Via-Middle TSV!
3D TSV technology is expected to reach $4.8B in revenues by 2019, mainly driven by 3D stacked DRAM and followed by 3D Logic/Memory and Wide I/O according to Yole Développement. With 40% share in the DRAM market, Samsung is by far the number 1 player. By introducing 3D TSV stacking in their latest 64GB DDR4, Samsung allows this technology to enter in the main stream.
This registered dual Inline memory module (RDIMM) includes 36 DDR4 DRAM chips (ref. K4AAG045WD), each of which consists of four 4Gb DDR4 DRAM dies (Ref. K4A4G085WD). The chips are manufactured using Samsung’s 20nm process technology and 3D TSV via-middle package technology.
As a result, the new 64GB TSV module performs twice as fast as a 64GB module that uses wire bonding packaging, while consuming approximately half the power.
On the process side, Samsung used a temporary bonding approach using adhesive glue material and copper via-filled using bottom up filling. Also, System Plus paid particular attention in identifying all technical choices made by Samsung on process and equipment (wafer bonding, DRIE via etching, via filling, bumping, underfill…).
The report includes a complete physical analysis and cost estimation of the 3D packaging process, as well as a detailed description of the manufacturing process.COMPLETE TEARDOWN WITH:

SYSTEM PLUS CONSULTING
Across the Enterprise, from marketing to purchasing and R&D, product manufacturing cost is a major factor which has to be measured and then optimized. Since 1993, System Plus Consulting’s mission has been to develop and sell the right tools and services to meet these costing requirements.
System Plus Consulting utilizes an engineering approach to cost. Cost models and technology expertise are combined to provide customers with an accurate and objective estimation of manufacturing costs and selling prices.
Headquartered in Nantes, France, System Plus Consulting is specialized in technology and cost analysis of electronic components and systems. During our 20 years in business, we have built and refined detailed cost models as the primary tools for hundreds of analyses. The highly qualified System Plus cost engineers combine broad and deep skills in semiconductor and electronics technologies with years of experience in cost modeling.
− Custom reverse costing analyses: technology analysis followed by cost evaluation
− Standard reverse costing reports: regular publications on innovative products (available from our catalogue)
− Costing tools: software tools combining models and data to perform cost analysis
System Plus Consulting analyzes any type of electronic devices and systems, with a special focus on semiconductor technologies. Major fields of technology and cost expertise are:
− Integrated Circuits
