The chapter on theoretical overview of SiP defines SiP and explains its morphology. SiP is placed in the context of other advanced packaging techniques, and a wider view is presented of where semiconductor packaging itself fits in the device-synthesis chain. The chapter dwells on simple and compound semiconductors and elaborates their pros and cons. Further, a high-level view of the SiP market is provided.
The chapter on global markets for SiP-enabled chipsets provides a closer look at the global market for those chipsets. End-use applications are used as the principal classification factor, and individual end-application markets are broken down by region and die composition.
