Rahul Goyal of Intel elected Board Chair of Silicon Integration Initiative

07/19/2018  Rahul Goyal of Intel has been elected to a one-year term as board chair of Silicon Integration Initiative, a research and development joint venture that provides standard interoperability solutions for integrated circuit design tools.

Puzzling results explained: A multiband approach to Coulomb drag and indirect excitons

07/19/2018  A new theoretical study explains previous mystifying experimental results, in which coupled charged particles moved in exactly the opposite direction to that predicted. This apparently contradictory phenomenon is associated with the bandgap in dual-layer graphene structures, a bandgap which is very much smaller than in conventional semiconductors.

UCLA engineers develop world's most efficient semiconductor for thermal management

07/19/2018  New material draws heat away from hotspots much faster than current materials.

Semi content in electronic systems forecast to reach 31.4% in 2018

07/19/2018  Semi content to surpass 30% this year, smashing the previous record high set just last year.

Texas Instruments CEO resigns

07/18/2018  The board has named Rich Templeton, the company's chairman, to reassume the roles of president and CEO on an ongoing, indefinite basis, in addition to continuing as chairman.

Micron and Intel announce update to 3D XPoint joint development program

07/17/2018  Micron and Intel today announced an update to their 3D XPoint joint development partnership, which has resulted in the development of an entirely new class of non-volatile memory with dramatically lower latency and exponentially greater endurance than NAND memory.

Silicon Labs expands senior management team

07/16/2018  Daniel Cooley has been named Senior Vice President and Chief Strategy Officer.

Intel to acquire eASIC

07/16/2018  Intel is competing to win in the largest-ever addressable market for silicon, which is being driven by the explosion of data and the need to process, analyze, store and share it.

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.

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

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
