Abstract:

MCM technology is crucial to maintaining the competitive position of the U.S. electronics industry - military and commercial. The driving force is performance, and MCM users will seek off-shore suppliers if capabilities are lacking. In the long term, low-cost overseas capabilities will make their way into the U.S. military market and put it at risk. The proven GE-HDI MCM technology was developed with combined government and Ge funding, and its chips first approach offers the lowest non-recurring cost. Rapid prototyping, high performance, and technology flexibility are characteristic, and the potential exists for extension to high-volume.
