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’s newest Integrated Materials Solution solves the challenge of selective tungsten deposition, enabling simultaneous improvements in chip power, performance and area/cost (PPAC) in the most advanced foundry-logic nodes.
With EUV-enabled advances in 2D scaling pushing the limits of conventional materials engineering techniques, a breakthrough is needed to overcome increases in contact resistance and enable continued improvements in chip performance, power and area/cost (PPAC).
