Back in July, Applied Materials announced that we’d been selected by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) to develop technology for AI. At the core of this project are the efforts of Applied Materials, Arm and Symetrix to develop a correlated electron switch. This of course begs the question, “what the heck is a correlated electron?”
As a firm believer in the power of the arts to transcend boundaries, open minds and captivate the imagination, Applied Materials is proud to support local arts and culture festivals, including the upcoming San Jose Jazz Summer Fest, the Luna Park Chalk Art Festival and Shakespeare in the Park.
Applied Materials recently joined the United States Advanced Ceramics Association to deepen our connection with suppliers and application developers, and explore potential areas where our materials engineering leadership can help enable the next major technology inflections.
The ability to detect and identify defects becomes increasingly difficult as chips continue to shrink. In this blog, I discuss a new approach to Defect Review Scanning Electron Microscopy that increases sensitivity of defect identification and isolates true defects from the noise.
I recently sat down for a video interview with G. Dan Hutcheson, CEO of VLSIresearch, to discuss why the industry is moving to new memory solutions and what strategies are being implemented to alleviate the memory bottleneck.
As the semiconductor industry begins producing logic devices for the single digit nodes, new conductors are being evaluated as replacements for copper to manage resistance scaling. Applied Materials’ Mehul Naik highlights one of the leading contenders.
