High Mobility Transistors

June 21, 2016 at 1 PM ET / Sponsored by Air Products

Transistor performance has been greatly improved with strained silicon and high-k metal gates. Further performance improvements could be had by implementing III-V materials in the channel of nMOS transistors. Both III-V and Ge-based channels being considered for the pMOS device. High electron-mobility III-V semiconductors have been intensely researched as alternative channel materials for sub-7 nm technology nodes, but one of the main stumbling blocks is how to integrate them monolithically and cost-effectively with traditional CMOS silicon technology. This webcast will discuss the latest efforts in this area, including vertically stacked III-V nanowire.

Is the Semiconductor Industry Ready for Industry 4.0 and the IIoT?

June 2016 (Date and time TBD)/ Sponsored by Epicor and Siemens

An industrial revolution is in the making, equivalent some say to the introduction of steam power at the tail end of the 18th century. Known as smart manufacturing, Industry 4.0 (after the German initiative Industrie 4.0), the industrial internet of things (IIoT), or simply the fourth industrial revolution, the movement will radically change how manufacturing is done. Greater connectivity and information sharing -- enabled by new capabilities in data analytics, remote monitoring and mobility -- will lead to increased efficiency and reduced costs. There will be a paradigm shift from “centralized” to “decentralized” production. Semiconductor manufacturing has long been thought of as the most advanced manufacturing process in the world, but it’s not clear if long-held beliefs about how proprietary data, such as process recipes, are managed. Industry experts will examine the potential for the semiconductor factory of the future, and discuss potential roadblocks.

Specialized Materials Meet Critical Packaging Needs in MEMS Devices

Microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) present both unique market opportunities and significant manufacturing challenges for product designers in nearly every application segment. Used as accelerometers, pressure sensors, optical devices, microfluidic devices, and more, these microfabricated sensors and actuators often need to be exposed to the environment, but also need to be protected from environmental factors. Although standard semiconductor manufacturing methods provide a baseline capability in meeting these challenges, the unique requirements of MEMS devices drive a need for specialized epoxies and adhesives able to satisfy often-conflicting demands.May 12, 2016
