A low cost, high density chip assembly for microprocessor and memory applications is achieved by the edge bonding of "slave" chips to the major surface of a "master" chip. The "master" chip may be, for example, a microprocessor or a memory controller chip. The "slave" chips may be I/O chips or memory chips. Other combinations are also possible.
