The Changing Nature of Microelectronics Innovation and Finding New Paths to Affordable Semiconductor Manufacturing

Seminar: Solid State Technology and Devices | June 20 | 1:30-2:30 p.m. | 521 Cory Hall

Daniel Armbrust, President & CEO, Sematech

Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences (EECS)

Increased globalization, growth in demand, and constrained resources, driven
by continuous improvements in technology has contributed to a fragmented
semiconductor manufacturing supply chain. In an effort to pursue upcoming
disruptive innovations, companies will need to take a holistic approach that
addresses all facets of R&D including strategy, process and organization,
and funding. As an international consortium, SEMATECH's role is to pull
innovative research which might otherwise not be developed into the industry
mainstream, and bring together stakeholders from across the industry
ecosystem to solve common infrastructure problems. Based on our experience
in collaborating with academia, industry and government, this presentation
will outline recent examples of successful collaborations in
nanoelectronics, and explore new collaborative strategies for the next
decade. It will examine the opportunities and challenges that will require
new innovations ? not only in technology and manufacturing, but also in
cooperative programs that allow for the sharing of costs, risks, facilities,
and expertise.
