As the semiconductor industry migrates toward extreme monolithic foundry level 3D heterogeneous structures for mixed-signal components and systems, 2.5D/3D silicon interposer and through silicon via (TSV) technology will play a significant role in next generation packaging solutions. It is ubiquitous that 2.5D/3D integration technologies are well suited to realize high density and high performance heterogeneous systems. 2.5D/3D integration technologies rely on TSV technology, wafer thinning/handling technology, micro-bump technology, EDA tools, advanced pathfinding and design optimization technology. This talk presents the latest advances in 2.5D/3D integration technologies as well as its economic and opportunities.

This topic will cover a broad area of topics regarding personal financial planning.
The aging population, the endangered Social Security system, the gone forever of the pension, the rapid changing economic cycle, people in America are facing big challenges for their financial matters. It is said nobody plans to fail, but fail to plan. Financial Planning likes playing a game, it takes top down strategic method. You need to think short term, mid-term and long term. How to save for college (529, Coverdell, 7702A)? What is EFC? How to control the risk of your retirement (401k, IRA, Roth IRA ...)? How to maximize the tax saving? How many types of insurance are there? What are their pros and cons? Why Long Term Care (LTC) gets more and more popular?
People frequently find themselves loss in the investment. Have you ever been in the dilemma that whenever you invest, the market crashes, and whenever you cash out, the market grows? Are you looking for a more certain and duplicable way to manage your asset? People often think financial planning equals investment planning; and investment planning equals buying stocks or real estate. This seminar will help you get out of this endless cycle by focusing more on the fundamentals. We sincerely hope you will find these information valuable. More importantly, how to implement it into your busy life.
