<p>Several issues associated with multichip module (MCM) system design are discussed. An early analysis tool for evaluating the tradeoffs between a design and packaging technology is presented. A case study of a possible design point suggested by combining different package elements being used in MCMs settings is included. The case study indicates that the most effective packaging solution for high-performance applications, requiring multichip modules, will likely represent a progression from cofired ceramics (MCM-C) to a thin-film and hybrid cofired ceramic (MCM-D/C) module.</p>
