Dr. Raja Swaminathan is the Corporate Vice President and Senior Fellow at AMD driving advanced packaging strategy and development with ecosystem partners. He was a package architect at Intel, moved to Apple to develop their M1x silicon package architectures before moving to AMD to drive their industry leading chiplet architecture integration, including the recently released 3D VCache and 2.5D EFB package architectures. He received his Bachelors’ from IIT Madras and PhD from Carnegie Mellon University. He has over 35 US patents in the field, an IEEE Senior Member and is on the technical advisory board for the Semiconductor research corporation (SRC) and Deca Corporation.
Advanced Packaging: Enabling Moore’s Law’s Next Frontier Through Heterogeneous integration
With chiplet architectures becoming mainstream, and recognized as fundamental to enabling the continued economically viable growth of power efficient computing, advanced package architectures are becoming more critical to enabling Moore’s Law’s next frontier through heterogeneous integration. In this talk, we will cover the advanced package architectures being enabled by AMD to enable PPAC (power, performance, area and cost) improvements as well as enable heterogeneous architectures. AMD’s 3D V-Cache architecture and Elevated Fan out bridge (EFB) technology will be discussed in detail, and some of the future integrated architectures will also be previewed.
