Abstract: Radio Frequency (RF) communications and demands for instant data drive the need for smaller form factors with high performance and longer battery life. Through Glass Via (TGV) interposers as a packaging platform will allow the integration of higher bandwidth data with a higher degree of reliability when compared to Through Silicon Via (TSV) as a passive interposer. This paper will demonstrate the benefit to processors, microcontrollers, memory and RF front-end sections when using the full advantage of a TGV interposer, as well as provide a roadmap for a disruptive supply chain. TGV technology will improve the methods in which Integrated Circuits (ICs) can be interconnected with superior reliability and achieve the highest performance for 2.5D and 3D packaging.
