Today, July 6, 2009, is the day a vision becomes a reality. When I first started Françoise in 3D, I knew it was just the beginning of something much bigger. During the last six months, with the help of Leo Archer, industry colleague, friend, and now full-fledged business partner; and Robert Petrossian, founder of SemiNeedle; this vision has taken shape and form to become 3D InCites a sponsor-supported community forum dedicated to stirring up interest in 3D integration. From now on, that will be the new home of Francoise in 3D, so please bookmark http://www.3dincites.com/ for uninterrupted coverage.
I don’t want to spend a lot of time explaining what this site is. I’d rather you spend your time taking it out for a test drive. You’ll notice we’ve established topic centers focused on the different categories critical to 3D Integration technologies: R&D collaboration; materials; equipment; processes technology; and; design, test and inspection. Tell us what you think. Consider becoming a sponsor. To celebrate this launch, we will post the logos of the first 10 organizations who post comments in their associated topic center for the duration of SEMICON West.
Finally, I'd like to welcome Leo to this space as a fellow blogger in 3D integration trends. Be sure to read Transistions - Part 1, for a full explanation of our vision, concept, and business model. -- F.v.T.
