YorChip working with Digitho to enable more secure chiplets

1 min read

YorChip has announced a partnership with Digitho that looks to not only secure the chiplets supply chain but their physical security as well.

The supply chain and security of chiplets are critical to assuring Known Good Die (KGD) are being used in final assembly – one defective chiplet, for example, means entire packages of chiplets may need to be scrapped.

Today, chiplets represent a multi-billion-dollar market opportunity and, according to Transparency Market Research, the chiplet market is expected to reach more than $47bn by 2031, representing one of the fastest growing segments of the semiconductor industry at more than 40% CAGR from 2021 to 2031.

This growth is expected to be driven by cost reductions and the improved yields chiplets will enable as compared to traditional system-on-chip (SoC) designs.

YorChips’ CEO and founder, Kash Johal, said, “We chose to work with the Digitho team due to their unique ability to personalise each individual chiplet on a wafer during back-end manufacturing. Their technology gives us the potential to embed a unique ID per KGD chiplet which consumes no active power and doesn’t suffer any PVT or aging issues unlike many competing technologies.”

Digitho CEO and founder, Richard Beaudry, said, “Partnering with YorChip will give us the opportunity to showcase our technology to the new chiplet market and solve supply chain, KGD and security problems.”
