What’s at stake:
Silicon Box, perceiving the absence of capacity for advanced packaging for chiplets, is charging in to fill the gap. Its foundry model focuses solely on chiplets – something never done before. The semiconductor startup begins life in Singapore with a commitment to spend $2 billion on advanced semiconductor foundry. Its advent confirms the chiplets story is only just beginning with many turns and twists to come.
Silicon Box is offering chiplet services ranging from design to manufacturing and advanced packaging. The newborn company claims that its first production line is already running, with samples being delivered to customers. They say it is ready for volume production later this year.
This is the story of how Silicon Box came about, who’s behind it, and how they plan to change the industry’s infrastructure to support chiplets.
This is great stuff. Let’s get started.
