TDK Ventures invests in chiplet specialist Silicon Box

TDK Ventures, a division of TDK Corporation, has acquired a stake in Singapore's semiconductor chiplet packaging design and fabrication firm Silicon Box.

The investment represents a major vote of confidence in chiplet tech, which is helping the semiconductor industry to tackle energy efficiency and performance in an era of voraciously hungry generative AI applications.  

Conventional packaging approaches struggle to cope thanks to the energy cost associated with moving data between chips. Silicon Box's package design and fabrication method provides an alternative. Instead of  relying on a single monolithic chip, it leverages multiple smaller chips interconnected in a single system-on-chip package.

The firm claims its large-format production process can support up to 8x more devices per unit, with 90+% yield. This compares to industry alternatives, which top out around 60%.

TDK Ventures' President Nicolas Sauvage said: "TDK Ventures is excited to partner with the world-class team at Silicon Box. Their standout chiplet design is making waves in the industry, and they already have a proven concept in a 750,000 square foot facility to support production. We are committed to supporting their success for a positive impact on the world."

Silicon Box CEO Dr. BJ Han added: "Teaming with TDK Ventures is ideal for us, and we are looking forward to continuing what has already been an incredible collaboration. We have significant synergies with many of their business units, and in addition to their investment, we are excited to engage with their extensive network, subject matter experts, and industrial base."
