In this blog, I look at ways Applied Materials is working with leading customers who wish to sustainably increase production to meet the world’s growing need for semiconductors. About half of the opportunity lies in the sub-fab, the often-overlooked world of support equipment below the production floor that consumes around half of the energy needed by modern fabs.
Compound semiconductors like silicon carbide (SiC) signal a new era of materials engineering in the automotive semiconductor market, one that can significantly increase efficiency, reduce heat dissipation and cut down the cost of end systems, thereby accelerating electric vehicle adoption rates.
Head-mounted displays for virtual, augmented and mixed reality have the potential for a variety of applications but there is still a lot of room for improvement in display technology. Applied Ventures portfolio company Avegant is hoping to change that.
Many of us know what it’s like to put in long hours at work. But what we may not realize is that some of our colleagues are working 15+ hours a day risking their own safety to help those in need of support and resources.
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.
