Abstract :

Since its inception in 1958, semiconductor technology has undergone rapid growth and innovation, positioning itself as one of the most dynamic segments in technological advancement. Following Moore's Law on technology evolution, and then transitioning to "More than Moore" approaches, the technology has progressed towards SoC and SiP architectures, ultimately leading to heterogeneous integration and chiplet technologies. New materials such as SiC and GaN have also been introduced, complementing Silicon, which still remains indisputably the main actor.Alongside these materials, new manufacturing techniques including SOI, W2W bonding, PLP, Fan-In-Fan-Out, DCI, PCM, FD-SOI, and II-VI quantum dots have emerged. The advancement of semiconductor technology moved hand in hand with increasing in volumes, data processing capabilities, and automation, paving the way for Edge AI applications that leverage deep learning and ML algos.
To sustain complexity and innovation, we implement edge-to-edge technology governance with integrated planning, data-driven decisions, and multidimensional organizational structures. Specific examples will clarify these concepts.
