One particularly substantial benefit is the ability to simplify both chip package
design and substrate design layout, thereby reducing layer counts in both structures.
The Moorestown platform chip package
is close to half the size of the Menlow platform.<p>Copyright 2009 IDG Middle East.
The RFIC has 16 phase shifters, which control the beam shape and direction of the radar, but the total chip package
size is just 5.5 x 5.5 mm2.
* A "Full Chip" V-I chip package
that enables surface mount, low impedance interconnects to system boards.
The KCM and KRM Series capacitors are available either in a single chip or double chip package
. High capacitance can be achieved with the double chip package
by stacking two MLCCs together.
Nvidia is also developing future Tegra chips that have lower power consumption at similar usage patterns.<p>Nvidia has also dipped into the growing netbook market with its Ion platform, a chip package
that brings high-definition graphics to low-cost PCs like netbooks.
