Understanding the building blocks for an electronic brain

10/22/2018  Computer bits are binary, with a value of 0 or one. By contrast, neurons in the brain can have all kinds of different internal states, depending on the input that they received. This allows the brain to process information in a more energy-efficient manner than a computer. University of Groningen (UG) physicists are working on memristors, resistors with a memory, made from niobium-doped strontium titanate, which mimic how neurons work.

STMicroelectronics and Fidesmo bring secure contactless transactions to wearables in complete payment System-on-Chip

10/19/2018  STMicroelectronics and Fidesmo, the contactless-services developer and Mastercard Approved Global Vendor, have created a turnkey active solution for secure contactless payments on smart watches and other wearable technology.

ULVAC and the CIA: A sensing story about food and agriculture

10/19/2018  ULVAC Technologies’ David Mount is working with The CIA. Is he the Jack Reacher of the MEMS and sensors industry, jetting around the world to secret meetings, you wonder?

Cybersecurity critical to success of MEMS and sensors suppliers

10/18/2018  Cynthia Wright, a retired military officer with over 25 years of experience in national security and cyber strategy and policy, now Principal Cyber Security Engineer at The MITRE Corporation, will give the opening keynote at the upcoming MEMS & Sensors Executive Congress, October 29-30, 2018 in Napa, Calif.

Electrical enhancement: Engineers speed up electrons in semiconductors

10/17/2018  Researchers from Graduate School of Bio-Applications and Systems Engineering at Tokyo University of Agriculture and Technology (TUAT) have sped up the movement of electrons in organic semiconductor films by two to three orders of magnitude.

Advanced Packaging

Date and time TBD

Back-end packaging is increasingly important to semiconductor device form factor, thermal and power performance, and costs. Compounded by the demand for lead-free processing and the soaring cost of gold, the industry is developing new approaches to packaging, including redistribution layers (RDL), through silicon vias (TSV), copper pillars, wafer-level packaging (WLP) and copper wire bonding. Experts will discuss these and other approaches in this webcast.

Lithography

Date and time TBD

EUV lithography has been under intense development for years and appears to be close to production. Yet its delay has the industry searching for alternatives, including double, triple and even quadruple patterning, directed self-assembly, multi-e-beam and nanoimprint. In this webcast, experts will detail various options, future scenarios and challenges that must still be overcome.

Jumpstart Your Reliability Verification with Foundry-Supported Rule Decks

For many, formal reliability verification is a new process. Foundry-qualified and foundry-maintained reliability rule decks enable design and IP companies alike to establish baseline robustness and reliability criteria without committing extensive time and resources to the creation and support of proprietary verification solutions. In addition, as reliability verification needs expand, customer demand drives the development and qualification of new and augmented reliability rules.August 30, 2018

Maximize uptime and optimize maintenance with AMS

Yukinobu Hayashi, Senior Field Applications Engineer from CyberOptics, explains the application uses of the WaferSense® Auto Multi Sensor™ (AMS) for Leveling, Vibration, and Relative Humidity (RH) that facilitates maximizing uptime and optimizes maintenance. The combination of these attributes in a thin wafer shaped all-in-one wireless sensor, provides engineers the ability to acquire highly repeatable measurements of tilt, vibration, and humidity while under a vacuum and without venting a chamber. The quantitative numeric results give engineers an objective basis for comparisons, and analysis that can be reproducible across multiple users over extended periods of time. June 13, 2018
