ABSTRACT
Editor's note: System-in-package provides highly integrated packaging with high-speed performance. Many SiP packages contain low-cost 3D stacked chips interconnected by fine wire bonds. In a high-frequency spectrum, these wire bonds can cause discontinuities causing signal degradation. This article addresses problems with wire-bonding in high-frequency SiP packages and proposes design methodologies to reduce these discontinuities.
