The cost of a new fab today can approach $10 billion, and such a high level of capital expenditure increases the importance of delivering a fast return on that investment. Now, a new early-stage fab-planning offering from the Applied Materials FabVantage™ Consulting group can help customers achieve faster, more efficient startups.
The wireless landscape is becoming far more sophisticated as Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) and mesh networks such as Zigbee and Thread take hold. When Silicon Valley tech entrepreneur Lucio Lanza was asked what the Next Big Thing is likely to be for the semiconductor industry, he gave exactly the right answer: "connectivity."
When you put on a virtual reality (VR) headset you are transported to another world, a place where reality is just a whim of the imagination. What’s far from imaginary, though, is the impact VR is having on all of us, whether we personally use VR headsets or not.
As devices become smaller and more densely packed, and the complexity of integrated circuits grows, defect reduction becomes more challenging while remaining critical to chipmakers’ competitiveness.
Ion implant tools are essential for semiconductor manufacturing because dopants such as arsenic, boron and phosphorous must be implanted into silicon to fabricate transistor structures such as gates and wells.
