On 15th September, Huawei took part in the 2021 ICEPT, which is the 22nd conference on the package-level system and related technology. Tonglong Zhang who is a senior engineer of research and development depart at Huawei Shenzhen represents the company.
During the keynote speech, the Huawei engineer mentioned, package-level systems are the future-oriented development technologies. The HPC (high-performance computing) and network switching systems are in need of well-structured system packaging.
Often referred to as a multi-chip module, package-level systems are the building blocks of an IC (integrated circuit) chip. Advance technology in this field will provide faster computing speed, reduce device design, and inexpensive cost. However, it’s not a trend at present in the industry. Only some limited chipmakers use this technology.

Furthermore, Tonglong Zhang points out, there are three main problems in the development trends of HPC chips. They are blocking the developers from and putting challenges related to reliability, heat dissipation, power integrity (PI), and signal integrity (SI). Moreover, the current problem includes-
- High data throughput for AI applications that brings higher interconnect density requirements
- More chips are integrated into the package to improve computing power and bring super-large size Packaging requirements
- Optical data transmission between IC packages
Using ultra-large-size packaging and ultra-wideband dual-mode interconnection with higher interconnection density, higher data bandwidth, shorter interconnection distance, and lower interconnection distance can solve the problems at some level. For instance, InFO-SoW and ISSCC 2021 developed by TSMC and NVIDIA respectively contain super-large packages.
ICEPT is the abbreviation for the International Conference on Electronic Packaging Technology. More than 500 experts from 20 countries took part in this conference each year. This conference is hosted by China’s top academy that includes
- IMECAS- Institute of Microelectronics of Chinese Academy of Sciences
- IEEE-EPS- Electronics Packaging Society
- CIE-EMPT- Electronic Manufacturing & Packaging Technology Society of Chinese Institute of Electronics
- Beijing IEEE- Beijing Electronics Packaging Society

Weizhuo Zhiyuan focuses on the research and development of cutting-edge technologies such as medical artificial intelligence, cloud computing, holographic visualization, and intelligent surgical navigation robots, and has in-depth cooperation with 301 Hospital, Chinese Union Medical College Hospital, and many other well-known medical institutions.
This time, Huawei and Weizhuo Zhiyuan’s PhotoViewer system is an integrated solution composed of software and hardware, including PhotoViewer software, high-performance workstations, and large touch screens.
- At the software level, the core of ReadPianbao is AI algorithm and image processing technology, which can automatically generate three-dimensional models to provide doctors with more comprehensive, intuitive, and three-dimensional image information.
- In terms of hardware, the high-sensitivity, low-latency, and ultra-clear 4K smart terminal adopted by Photoshop can realize the communication between multiple people in the way of touch interaction, which greatly improves the efficiency and accuracy of medical information transmission. The intelligent conference function preset by the intelligent terminal ensures that the remote image consultation can be carried out anytime and anywhere.
- At the level of teaching ward rounds, Reading Pictures can realize from two-dimensional reading to three-dimensional smart images, presenting rich image information from a higher dimension and a wider field of vision, making clinical diagnosis and treatment techniques easier to understand and master, and disseminating and communicating medical knowledge. More efficient, help optimize the learning curve and growth path of young doctors, and save time and cost of learning and training.
- At the level of case discussion, this imaging system can meet the needs of multi-person consultation and remote consultation. Its unique touch interaction, three-dimensional reconstruction, annotation synchronization and other functions can more intuitively and three-dimensionally display the three-dimensional structure of the lesion and the surrounding important organs. Information such as measurement and annotation can be saved and recalled at any time.
- At the level of doctor-patient communication, the unique three-dimensional imaging function of ReadPianbao allows patients and their families who do not have medical knowledge to understand the condition of the disease more intuitively and accurately, and fully understand the treatment methods and risks, which not only protects the patient’s right to know , Also objectively avoid medical disputes caused by understanding differences.
- At the level of remote consultations, ReadPianbao can initiate or join remote consultations anytime and anywhere. It supports video, voice, image, and handwritten annotations, and consultation opinions can be archived by multiple parties.
