November 21, 2011 -- This article discusses the current state of 3D tools and software, describes a working flow, and identifies the areas where more progress is needed. We base the discussion on a specific next-generation demonstration device taken from a design that Tezzaron is prototyping with several partners. The demo design contains an advanced ARM processor stack, an "off the shelf" FPGA die, and a DRAM memory stack, all assembled onto an active silicon circuit board acting as an interposer.
