STATS ChipPAC Ltd. (“STATS ChipPAC” or the “Company”), a leading provider of advanced semiconductor packaging and test services, today announced a collaborative partnership with Nanyang Technological University (NTU) focused on generating breakthrough innovations in next generation packaging technologies.
STATS ChipPAC and NTU will collaboratively focus on further advancement in wafer level packaging and interconnect technologies, and the acceleration of research on new materials and manufacturing processes. The partnership leverages the depth of resources in NTU’s academicians and researchers, and STATS ChipPAC’s experience in advanced semiconductor packaging technologies.
Based in Singapore, NTU is one of the world’s fastest-rising universities, with globally acknowledged strengths in science and engineering. NTU recently ranked No. 2 amongst the world’s top young universities aged 50 years and below by higher education information provider Quacquarelli Symonds (QS). NTU is also ranked among Asia’s top 10 universities by QS. The university has made substantial contributions to Singapore’s drive for research and innovation, as well as attracting top students and some of the world's best professors. The partnership is in full alignment with STATS ChipPAC’s ongoing commitment to Singapore as the Company’s global hub for advanced wafer level technology research and development (R&D), and Post Wafer fab Process (PWfP) for advanced mobile convergence devices.
“The semiconductor industry is evolving rapidly to meet the increasing device complexity and connectivity experience of today’s electronic consumers. We are constantly seeking to expand our technology and manufacturing innovations in order to deliver differentiated solutions for our customers’ next generation mobile convergence devices.
