3D NAND: Trends in Processes, Circuits

October 3, 2017 at 1 p.m. ET

Conventional planar flash memory technology is approaching critical scaling limitations that are driving the transition to 3D solutions. 3D NAND is expected to scale in height, from 16-bit-tall strings to string heights of more than 128 bits. Meanwhile NAND makers will find ways of placing these strings closer to each other through more aggressive lithography.

Materials

Date and time TBD

Success in electronics manufacturing increasingly relies on the materials used in production and packaging. More than 50 different elements from the periodic table are now used in semiconductor manufacturing, and the list grows even longer when you consider the requirements of flexible/printed electronics, LEDs, compound semiconductors, power electronics, displays, MEMS and bioelectronics. In this webcast, experts will focus on changing material requirements, the evolving material supply chain, recent advances in process and packaging materials and substrates, and the role new materials such as carbon nanotubes will play in the future.

MEMS

Date and time TBD

MEMS have quite different process and material requirements compared to mainstream microprocessor and memory types of devices. We will explore the latest trends in MEMS devices – including sensor fusion, biosensors, energy harvesting – new manufacturing challenges and potential equipment and materials solutions to those challenges.

Wafer Handler Predictive Monitor and Equipment Verification, Excursion Detection, Defect Reduction & Tool Matching

Consistent equipment performance, avoiding unscheduled downtime, reducing defects and preventing excursions is key to reducing cost and improving die and line yield in semiconductor manufacturing. The fully automated InnerSense SmartWafer (SMW2) system addresses these key metrics. The SMW2 system is effectively being used as a predictive monitor for handler PM’s, a leading indicator for mechanical defects and can detect, predict and prevent most mechanical related excursions, including wafer damage that can lead to subsequent wafer breakage. The SMW2 system can further improve tool availability by improving post PM recovery and tool matching.January 24, 2017
