02/05/2018  Global industry posts highest-ever annual, quarterly, and monthly sales.

A crystal method

01/31/2018  UCSB researchers unlock another piece of the puzzle that is crystal growth.

Seoul Semiconductor achieves $1.04B record annual revenues for fiscal year 2017

01/30/2018  The 16% rise in consolidated revenues far exceeds the industry average, which grew 2% during the same period.

Sino IP office rules in favor of AMEC by rendering Veeco Instruments' susceptorless reactor patent invalid

01/29/2018  Advanced Micro-Fabrication Equipment Inc. today announced that the Patent Re-examination Board (PRB) of the State Intellectual Property Office (SIPO) in China, ruled on Jan. 23 that all patent claims relating to patent number ZL 01822507.1 held by Veeco Instruments Inc. are invalid.

Turbulent times ahead for trade

01/25/2018  International trade is one of the best tools to spur growth and create high-skill and high-paying jobs. Over 40 million American jobs rely on trade, and this is particularly true in the semiconductor supply chain. Over the past three decades, the semiconductor industry has averaged nearly double-digit growth rates in revenue and, by 2030, the semiconductor supply chain is forecast to reach $1 trillion.

Scientists reveal the fundamental limitation in the key material for solid-state lighting

01/24/2018  For the first time an international research group has revealed the core mechanism that limits the indium (In) content in indium gallium nitride ((In, Ga)N) thin films - the key material for blue light emitting diodes (LED).

Value of semiconductor industry M&A deals slows dramatically in 2017

01/18/2018  Numerous smaller deals were made but "megadeals" were scarce last year.

Researchers propose new gas-solid reaction for high-speed perovskite photodetector

01/16/2018  The gas-solid reaction method provides a full coverage of the perovskite film and avoids the damage from the organic solvent, which is beneficial for the light capture and electrons transportation, resulting in a faster response time and stability for the perovskite photodetector.

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.

Leveraging Baseline Checks for Robust Reliability Verification

As IP and IC designers and verification teams tackle increased complexity and expectations, reliability verification has become a necessary ingredient for success. Automotive, always-on mobile devices, IOT and other platforms require increasingly lower power envelopes and reduced device leakage while maintaining overall device performance. Foundries have also created new process nodes targeted for these applications. Having the ability to establish baseline checks for design and reliability requirements is critical to first pass success. January 08, 2018
