Amkor helps customers address size, power restrictions/requirements and budget constraints of end products

Today’s extensive communications capabilities rely on a variety of wired and wireless technologies. While protocols vary considerably for wired and wireless communications, hardware requirements for infrastructure and specific markets are frequently very similar. The goal is to take advantage of ever increasing capabilities to transmit vast amounts of data. For wired applications such as routers, switches, servers, logic, memory, PHY, network processors, and security processors, Amkor’s FCBGA, fcCSP, SiP, SSOP, SOIC, PBGA, MLF®, QFP, and CABGA packages provide the solution. These same packages are used in wireless LANs, mobile infrastructure/base stations and smartphones that also use advanced WLCSP technologies.

Amkor is 5G Ready. Are You?

5G products will be arriving soon and several carriers plan to roll out 5G services by 2020. Residential broadband, autonomous cars, streaming video, augmented and virtual reality (AR/VR), artificial intelligence (AI), and Massive Machine to Machine IoT are some of the applications where 5G services will be used.

There are several challenges that are associated with 5G. This is the first time mmWave technology will be used at a large commercial scale. Multiple bands and carrier aggregation increase the RF Front end complexity of 5G solutions. Minimizing signal loss and Integrating and shielding multiple RF components in a small space becomes a challenge. Higher data rates result in significant thermal management problems.

Amkor Technology has developed a toolbox of solutions for our customers. Based on their requirements, customers can select from different Low Df, Low Dk substrates, and TIM materials for heat dissipation. Amkor can work with customers to develop models for electrical, thermal and mechanical simulations. We also offer services for design, signal integrity simulations, test, and characterization.
