Regina Freed has more than 20 years of experience in the semiconductor industry, managing semiconductor process and equipment development for both logic and memory processes, including co-optimization between deposition and etch, lithography, metrology, and defect inspection. At Applied Materials, Regina leads our AIx™ program that enables us and our customers to accelerate development and ramp through Actionable Insights as well as control our processes to deliver improved process windows, enabling customers to scale faster and at lower cost, while optimizing device performance.
Unless we can solve pattern variability challenges, we won’t be able to further scale logic chips and provide users with simultaneous improvements in power, performance and cost. Innovations in “DTCO” and materials engineering are here to help.
What’s clear from the panel discussion I recently moderated with Facebook, IBM, Intel, Stanford and TSMC is that the semiconductor design and manufacturing model is evolving and will look extremely different in the years ahead.
