2020 will be remembered most for the challenges of COVID-19. In the world of technology, it will be remembered for accelerating digital transformations that would have taken many more years to play out. Entering 2021, the dependency between the global economy and semiconductors is greater than it’s ever been. At the same time, the way chips are being made is changing as traditional Moore’s Law scaling slows. Applied Materials is dedicated to driving new ways to help our customers continue to deliver improvements in chip power, performance and cost, in record time.
Selective processing is increasingly being used to create, shape and modify materials and features in semiconductor manufacturing. In this blog I explain what selective processing is and why it’s critically important to the future of chip scaling.
Applied Materials is chairing a panel discussion with memory technology leaders including Intel, Samsung, SK hynix and Western Digital to address new types of storage class memory as part of the eighth IEEE International Memory Workshop on May 16.
