SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Tessera Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq:TSRA), announced today that its
wholly owned subsidiary Invensas Corporation and Jabil (NYSE: JBL), one
of the world’s leading design and manufacturing product solution
providers, have completed the first phase of qualification of Invensas
Bond-Via-Array™ (BVA®) interconnect technology.

“BVA is a proven high density, 3D interconnect technology for
Package-on-Package (PoP) and System-in-Package (SiP) applications,” said
Craig Mitchell, president, Invensas. “As an established leader in the
manufacture of a diverse array of electronic products, Jabil’s
identification of BVA as the benchmark for fine pitch package stacking
is yet another validation of the value that this technology brings to
the industry.”

Jabil’s interest stems from a desire to address customer requirements to
mount fine pitch stacked packages to printed circuit boards (PCBs) with
high yield and high throughput. In order to optimize the PCB assembly
process of BVA-based packages for high volume production and ensure a
complete manufacturing ecosystem, Jabil will also collaborate with Fuji
Machine Mfg. Co., Ltd., a leading provider of surface mount technology
equipment. The two companies are well suited to make significant
contributions in the form of novel and proprietary PCB assembly
processes.

“Invensas BVA technology is a low-cost, versatile package stacking
solution that is capable of scaling to very fine pitch,” said Dan
Gamota, vice president of strategic capabilities, Jabil. “At Jabil, we
expect such innovative packaging solutions, and our ability to assemble
them to PCBs, will be required to address the demand for ever increasing
performance and functionality in future customer products. We look
forward to continuing to work with Invensas as we explore uses of this
important technology.”

Invensas BVA technology provides the industry with a scalable package
stacking platform that leverages existing manufacturing infrastructure
while delivering unmatched tolerance to process variations; this
translates into improved yield and cost efficiencies. The technology can
be used to provide cost effective 3D interconnect solutions for
Package-on-Package (PoP), System-in-Package (SiP) and a range of other
packaging applications. For more information on Invensas BVA technology
