Advanced Semiconductor Engineering, Inc., the world’s largest semiconductor assembly and test service provider, showcased System-in-Package (SiP) and MEMS & Sensor technologies through live demonstrations of Smart Living and Smart Bike applications at COMPUTEX 2016, which took place in Taipei, Taiwan, May 31 – June 3, 2016. These SiP and sensor applications highlighted ASE’s innovative portfolio geared towards the IoT market, as well as the company’s continued commitment to environmental sustainability.
SiP technology is an ideal solution for a broad spectrum of consumer technology. With its ability to enable multiple semiconductor chips and passive components to be integrated within increasingly more compact modules, without compromising functionality, SiP is perfectly suited for IoT applications. During COMPUTEX, ASE showcased ways in which SiP technology will enable the evolving Smart Living era. Booth visitors saw live demonstrations featuring mesh lighting that can be controlled through an iPad, environmental sensors and home security systems. These demonstrations featured the potential applications for these new technologies.
Additionally, visitors saw a live Smart Bike demo in which ASE showcased how its SiP platform can enable smart biking through a city. The demo featured traffic light control optical sensing, motion sensing and heart rate and oxygen saturation detection, among other technologies. COMPUTEX attendees found the Smart Living and Smart Bike demonstrations in the ASE VIP suite, located on the second floor of the Taipei International Convention Center (TICC), number T203A.
ASE’s advancements in SiP technology serve to meet growing market demand for low-powered controllers and sensors with small footprints but large memory for continually shrinking devices. Enabling heterogeneous integration of numerous IC functions — such as RF, processor, memory, sensors, power, multimedia and more — within very tight space constraints.
