Applied Materials was presented with the prestigious IEEE Corporate Innovation Award by IEEE, the world’s largest technical professional association dedicated to advancing technology for the benefit of humanity, at the IEEE Honors Ceremony in San Diego, California on June 29, 2013.
Receiving the award was Applied’s John White, vice president, Engineering and Product Technology Development, Display Products Group and Applied Materials Fellow. He proudly accepted on behalf of Applied Materials which was being recognized for innovation and leadership in plasma-enhanced chemical vapor deposition (PECVD) technology for flat panel display manufacturing.
For more than 20 years, Applied has employed its expertise in semiconductor manufacturing to provide solutions that have driven continued advancements in flat panel display technologies. Virtually every thin film transistor liquid crystal display (TFT LCD) produced has passed through Applied’s PECVD equipment. Applied has played a key role in decreasing the cost per unit area of flat screen displays by 95 percent over the past decade. The company’s PECVD technology has made televisions, tablets and smartphones more powerful, affordable and accessible to consumers throughout the world.
The Display team and Applied Materials are proud of this prestigious recognition. Our significant materials engineering achievements in PECVD have enabled us to provide customers with the right technology to support their businesses. We will continue to lead innovation and provide customers with next-generation technology.
