Increasing Collaboration and Speed from Materials to Systems
The Materials Engineering Technology Accelerator (META Center) is a new world-class hub for innovation in materials engineering research and development (R&D). The META Center will speed customer availability of new chipmaking materials and process technologies that enable breakthroughs in semiconductor performance, power, and cost, creating new ways for Applied and its customers to drive innovation as classic Moore’s Law scaling becomes more challenging.
The Center will also support startups and early-stage companies in the fields of Artificial Intelligence (AI), Augmented and Virtual Reality (AR/VR), advanced optics, big data, life sciences, and autonomous vehicles, among others, with advanced materials-based R&D, process technologies, device prototyping and pilot scale production capabilities.
This first-of-its-kind facility will be furnished with a broad suite of Applied’s most advanced process systems along with complementary technologies needed for new chip materials and structures. The META Center is located in Albany, New York and is scheduled to open in 2019.
