Ltcc Aip - Semiconductor Assembly And Test Services Provider
Our firm requires multiple experts to share their insights on low temperature cured ceramic (ltcc) antenna in package (aip) modules for sub 6 gigahertz and mmwave communications for 5g networks. Both small cell and customer premises equipment (cpe).
We would like to have a better understanding of the cost structure for both ltcc and other n.I.K materials such as ptfe(pcb). Ideally, experts who have worked with semiconductor packaging and test services providers and have knowledge of both ltcc material and rf packaging design.
This would be for a 1-hour paid phone consultation.
To demonstrate your relevance in this space, please consider answering the questions below.
1. Briefly, can you share what telecom industry mmwave rf modules experience do you have? In which role did you have the most impact on the module design or manufacturing choices.
2. Have you been involved specifying system or device operating requirements related to specific material choices for device construction? Was it on rf components or rf front end devices?
3. Would you be able to share your insights on the following discussion points? Kindly indicate yes/no or a few brief statements.
3a. Are you familiar with how osat’s determine costs, benefits, and value tradeoffs of using ceramic materials versus non-ceramic materials to a telecom hardware manufacturer or designer?
3b. How osat play in the value chain in this regard?
3c. What is your understanding of the global capacity requirements for rf modules that will be created by 5g development?
3d. Do you see ltcc applications competing with organic laminates, and if so what are the critical success factors for ltcc based designs?
3e. Would you be able to discuss when do you see the version 1 design locked for the first mmwave rf devices (sip, aip, rffe + antenna network, pamid, or femid)? Will it be the first version devices or on a subsequent redesign (v2, v3, v4, ….)?

I am a cargo surveyor representing a cargo insurer. One of their insureds imported 4 cartons packed with reels of semiconductors. Each reel contained 10,000 units. The cartons got wet during transit. The reels are packed in foil and vacuum packed. Some of the vacuum seals were broken because of moisture but no water actually penetrated the foil. If the semiconductors were not actually wetted, can the exterior moisture affect their soundness and lifespan? I might need to hire an expert to visit the assured in deer park, ny. Any ideas?+10 Other Responses
We are a prominent nyc-based expert network and an authorized zintro partner. Our client has an immediate need to to conduct phone consults with multiple experts knowledgeable about the semiconductor industry. More specifically, our client is looking to better understand the following topics:
- the differences between different rf vendors like skyworks, the qualifications considered in procurement decisions, and the technical differences between products.
- the historical perspective of the rf industry over the past 10 years, and how the offerings have changed over time.
- the historical pricing trends for these products and the future outlook for pricing industry-wide.
- the differences between skyworks' products and their sales process versus competitive players in the space.
