Summary: This proposal aims to create a nationally unique Advanced Prototype Packaging Facility (APPF) across two locations (UTS and USYD) in the heart of Tech Central, for developing commercial grade device prototypes at low volumes. Our proposal is to house the main part of this facility at UTS in a state-of-the-art open-access cleanroom facility. A smaller selection of specific tools would be installed in USYD’s Research and Prototype Foundry (RPF). The proposed APPF offers transformative advanced packaging capabilities as a key opportunity to capture significantly increased economic benefit for Australia in advanced manufacturing industries.
