Multifunctional Electronics Core Substrate Configurable Electronics Functionality with Stacked Silicon and Multi-Chip Modules (MECSC)

Active Technology Project

Project Introduction

Multifunctional Electronics Core Substrate Configurable Electronics Functionality with Stacked Silicon and Multi-Chip Modules

Integration of a mix of heterogeneous electronic device technologies (silicon, III-V, passive, etc.) into a single multifunctional substrate core. Based on the development  and implementation of 2.5D and 3-D interconnect and interposer packaging technologies.  Target small sat deep space transponder/RF comms boards into one board for >50% size and weight savings.

A custom multifunctional core substrate scheme comprised of next generation polyimide, ceramic and/or silicon materials will be designed to integrate new 2.5D and 3-D interconnect technologies into producing a significant size and power reduced RF transponder.  Development of heterogeneous flip chip attachment to low loss substrates, embedded RF waveguides and passives (R,L,C) and completely plug in/stackable Multichip Modules (MCM) will be required to meet this goal.
