Bare die

Requirements for smaller form factors and higher memory densities are fueling the need for bare die memory solutions due to their superior flexibility. Wafer-level products can be used in packaging technologies such as systems-in-a-package (SIPs) and multichip packages (MCPs) to reduce the board area required.

Weighing the benefits of bare die

Given their potential to bring substantial benefits to your design wafer-level solutions are worth a closer look. Benefits like thinner packaging, custom packaging and custom solutions are appealing because they can reduce required board space. This is the case with packaging technologies such as systems-in-a-package (SIPs) and multichip packages (MCPs). The reduced trace lengths between bare die devices also enable higher-frequency operation which is needed as processor and bus speeds increase.

As compelling as those benefits are, there is also the convincing reason of cost savings. The cost savings comes from space savings (the memory is integrated inside) and reduced board cost (fewer layers and traces are required).

Micron’s bare die solutions combine these benefits with an ongoing commitment to deliver wafer-level products with reliability and quality levels that rival fully tested and burned-in packaged devices.
