Bill Chen, ASE Fellow ASE Group

William T. Chen (M'92, SM'03, F'06) received his engineering education at University of London (B.Sc), Brown University (M.Sc) and Cornell University (PhD). He joined IBM Corporation at Endicott New York in 1963.

At IBM he worked in a broad range of IBM microelectronic packaging products. He received IBM Division President Award for his leadership and innovation in Predictive Modelling on IBM products. He was elected to the IBM Academy of Technology for his contributions to IBM Products and Packaging Technologies. He retired from IBM in 1997. He joined the Institute of Materials Research and Engineering (IMRE) in Singapore, to initiate research in microelectronic packaging materials and processes. He was appointed to the position Director of the Institute (IMRE) steering the growth in people, funding and research facilities and research direction for IMRE to become the leading materials science and engineering research center in the ASEAN region. In 2001 he joined ASE Group, where he holds the position of ASE Fellow and Senior Technical Advisor. In this assignment he has responsibilities for guidance to technology strategic directions for ASE Group. He is Senior Past President of the IEEE/CPMT Society. He is the Co-Chair of the ITRS Assembly and Packaging Roadmap Technical Working Group. He is chair of the Semicon West Packaging Committee. He has been elected to a member of the iNEMI Board. He is a member of the Technology Committee of GSA. He has been elected to Fellow of IEEE and Fellow of ASME. He has served as an Associate Editor of ASME Journal of Electronic Packaging, and IEEE/CPMT Transactions.

Dr. Bottoms currently serves as: Emeritus Member of the Board of Tulane University, Co-Chair of the Heterogeneous Integration Roadmap, Chairman of the SEMI's Awards Committee, Chairman of the Packaging and Package Substrates Technical Working Group for INEMI, Member of the Board of MIT's Microphotonic Center, Chairman of Fluence Analytics and Chairman of Third Millennium Test Solutions.

Abstract: Our Industry has reinvented itself through multiple disruptive changes in technologies, products and markets. With the rapid migration of logic, memory and applications to the Cloud infrastructures, the Internet of Things (IoT) to internet of everything (IOE), smart devices everywhere, and autonomous automotive, the pace of innovation is increasing to meet these challenges. The Heterogeneous Integration Technology Roadmap (HIR), is sponsored by the IEEE CPMT Society, the Electron Devices Society (EDS), Photonics Society together with SEMI and ASME EPPD. It will address the future directions of heterogeneous integration technologies and applications serving the future markets and applications, so very crucial to our societies' fields of interest and to our industries and academic and research communities. In addition to Heterogeneous Integration Roadmap (HIR) two other Roadmaps are under development within IEEE: International Technology Roadmap for Wide Band-Gap Semiconductors (ITRW) sponsored by the IEEE Power Electronics Society (PELS), and International Technology Roadmap for Devices & Systems (IRDS), an IEEE Standards Association Industry Connection Program sponsored by the Rebooting Computing Initiative. Coordination initiative is underway for collaboration and harmonization among the roadmaps.
