Applied Materials announced plans to establish a new, joint R&D lab with the Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR). The lab, the second collaboration with A*STAR in Singapore, is a prime example of how Applied is expanding its partnerships with research agencies, leading universities and governments worldwide, and forging new models of innovation to accelerate the commercialization of advanced R&D.
Applied’s James Xiao, VP & GM, Display CVD & EPG, reviews the recently launched thin film encapsulation systems for enabling the volume production of high-resolution, thin and lightweight flexible OLED displays for mobile products and TVs.
Applied's Sree Kesapragada and Miller Allen, discuss the Endura Cirrus HTX which meets chipmakers’ copper interconnect patterning needs by extending the TiN metal hardmask —the industry’s material of choice — to the 10nm and below nodes.
At the recent Women in Technology International (WITI) Summit, Applied Materials hosted a session on what it takes to be a successful leader in the semiconductor and embedded systems industry. The session’s goal was to inspire and energize the all-female audience and provide valuable leadership development information they could implement immediately.
Being an industry leader isn’t just about market share, technology prowess or the size of a company’s workforce; it’s also about the way we interact with our employees, customers, local communities where we operate and the environment we share. It is about acting responsibly.
For the next installment in my display survey series, I will focus on advanced display technologies coming down the pipeline and how materials engineering solutions will enable tomorrow’s TVs and mobile devices to be flexible, bendable and foldable.
