Since Year 2020, many countries are fighting with the COVID-19. During this pandemic, In order to resume our “Normal Daily Life”, we have created a new life style – “Smart Life 2.0”. For example, working from home has become the norm, also online meeting, video teaching, drone delivery and remote servicing, and more. This smart life, empowered different new products, new services, new forms of business and new business models covering, education, health care and smart-homing sectors by various technologies. This new style of living becomes an important factor that impact on our economic growth and boost circular economy in the country. Behind this digital economy, we have supports from Artificial intelligence (AI), Big Data, Cloud Computing and Data Analytic, and these technologies are all rely on the technological advancement and algorithms of semiconductors.

ASM Pacific Technology Ltd (ASMPT) announced that it has shipped its 250th Thermo-Compression Bonding (TCB) tool to customers in Feb 2021. This press highlights the leadership of this company in TCB. ASMPT’s TCB system has been widely adopted by manufacturers with high-volume manufacturing (HVM) production. It is used for the assembly of the highest-end logic chips in PCs and servers, in order to provide a faster AI and cloud computing data analysis.Presently, ASMPT is in its 3rd generation of TCB bonders, which the company has progressively evolved from C2S (Chip-to-substrate), C2W (Chip-to-wafer) to the current ultra-precision, high throughput tool that is scalable for future needs of the industry and customers.

From the perspective of the market and technological needs, the development of the Advanced Packaging and Heterogeneous Integration, esp. TCB process endows AI and Cloud Computing technologies with extensive future prospects. The train of “Smart Life 2.0” have been turned on and have development advantages in our post-pandemic life. Automation is a new normal. Technologies like cloud computing, the Internet of Things (IoT) and Big Data become the mainstream. The need of high performance computing system will be spurred exponentially by AI and 5G applications
