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
