3D Technology for Advanced Sensor Systems

A collaboration between our group, RTI International (RTI) and North Carolina State University (NCSU) and includes work in the following areas: advanced metal-metal interconnects, development of process technology for through silicon interconnects, 3D passives, and applications of through silicon vias (TSV) to advanced sensors.



  • Through-wafer interconnect reliability
  • Continuity and void detection
  • Plasma induced damage (PID)
  • Environmental reliability
  • TWI Applications
  • Device applications & 3D microstructures
