Applied Materials will introduce a redesigned 200mm epi chamber. The new Applied Materials Centura Pronto Atmospheric (ATM) Epi chamber is specifically designed to produce the industry’s highest-quality thick silicon films (20-130µm) needed for power, MEMS and other devices used in fast--growing mobile and Internet of Things (IoT) technologies.
Applied Materials will be prominently represented at two of China’s largest annual semiconductor technology conferences from March 13 – 16, in Shanghai.

In today’s fabs, it has become increasingly difficult and time-consuming to integrate and harmonize the data coming from diverse computer-integrated manufacturing applications. In fact, this is now a major stumbling block to the rapid deployment of these systems and, hence, to the ability of a fab to quickly achieve targeted productivity.

The new International Roadmap for Devices and Systems charts an end-to-end course for the computing ecosystem, including device manufacturing, and captures the trends in "smart" manufacturing for the microelectronics manufacturing industries.

For close to a decade, the 200mm semiconductor state-of-the-art has been in a constant cycle of re-invention. Today’s leading consumer, medical, communications, industrial and automotive products are driving brisk demand for all kinds of devices.
A series of annual internal technology meetings, Applied’s Engineering and Technology (ET) Conference program, has become an effective way to bring together the company’s engineers from far-flung regions to collaborate on innovative technology concepts and exchange ideas on processes, equipment, and support services.
