2024 Keynote Speaker

Monday Keynote Speaker

Joseph Roybal

Senior Vice President of Global Backend Operations, Wolfspeed

Joseph Roybal is the Senior Vice President of Global Backend Operations at Wolfspeed aligning backend manufacturing roadmaps, production strategies, and capital allocation to scale efficiently with Wolfspeed’s exponential growth. He leads an expanding worldwide team focused on systemic manufacturing solutions, SiC package innovation, strategic partnerships with OSATs, and effective product manufacturing solutions for all Wolfspeed businesses and major SiC backend operations.

Packaging Trends in the Power Semiconductor Market

High Voltage (HV) power semiconductors play a critical role in the mass commercialization of electrical vehicles. Silicon carbide (SiC) based MOSFET’s have become commonplace as a superior alternative to silicon devices in HV applications. 

While this shift to SiC devices results in significant attention on wafer substrates, epitaxial layers, and front end technology, it also results in increased focus on backend packaging requirements. Silicon carbide devices run at a higher junction temperature compared to silicon devices, which drives unique packaging trends and roadmaps. 

Wolfspeed is leading the transformation from silicon to silicon carbide (SiC), and best-in-class packaging materials, equipment, and processes are needed to unlock the full potential of silicon carbide devices.

Advanced Packaging and Test Enabling Our Digital Society

Semiconductors are the building blocks of our modern digital society and allow us to be connected anywhere and everywhere. We interact with semiconductors every day through almost everything we do, whether using our smartphones, personal electronics, connected homes or our cars, which have become digital cockpits, immersed with advanced safety features. All of these digital interactions require massive computing and connectivity power to process, store and transfer data.

Join me as we explore innovations in advanced packaging and test technology and how they enable further transformation in our digital society with a focus on the key catalysts of 5G, High Performance Computing, IoT and Automotive applications.
