- Chemical Mechanical Planarization (CMP)
- Chemical Vapor Deposition (CVD)
- Electrochemical Deposition (ECD)
- Epitaxy (EPI)
- Etch Processes
- Ion Implant
- Metrology and Inspection
- Physical Vapor Deposition (PVD)
- Rapid Thermal Processing
We accelerated development and time-to-market by providing lab space and engineering expertise while investing in Adesto Technologies (NASDAQ:IOTS) from Series A through IPO. Adesto is a leading provider of application-specific, ultra-low power, non-volatile memory products. These value-added memories are enabling a new class of connected applications in a wide variety of consumer IoT, industrial IoT, communications, medical and computing applications.
We are driving the semiconductor manufacturing ecosystem in India by delivering tools and nurturing top talent. The IIT Bombay-Applied Materials partnership has led to India’s first university–based facility with 200 mm fab tools, three on-site labs focusing on Nanotechnology, Chemistry & Material Sciences and R&D on next-generation technologies. In addition, we helped build India’s first Semiconductor Technology and Manufacturing Certification Program.
Applied is working with JHU and INBT to develop a strong interaction between clinicians and engineers to solve important medical questions. INBT has world-class expertise in novel medical treatments utilizing nanotechnology and Applied offers its unique expertise in high-speed imaging and nanofabrication techniques. Jointly we hope to develop new, sophisticated devices of benefit to the medical industry.
We are 1 of 5 industry partners who have joined forces with universities and national laboratories with leading battery research programs.
Our venture investment in Norsk Titanium reflects our charter to identify and accelerate innovation around the globe. We are committed to applying our leadership in materials engineering to accelerate industrial applications for Norsk’s rapid plasma deposition technology.
Joint R&D collaboration established in 2014 with a focus on developing innovative technologies that can strengthen Singapore’s competencies in additive manufacturing.
We accelerated development and time-to-market by co-developing and licensing large scale Atomic Layer Deposition technology from Beneq®. Beneq® is a leading supplier of Atomic Layer Deposition equipment and thin film coating services. These thin film solutions are transforming the future of displays.
Tyndall is a strategic research partner and we are engaging with them on both Atomic Layer Deposition-related topics, where we donated two state-of-the-art 300mm ALD chambers, and other areas of interest where Tyndall demonstrates world-class research capabilities. We also maintain a Researcher-in-Residence working directly alongside Tyndall academic and industry partners.
