Applied Materials’ efforts to build a robust and sustainable supply chain for semiconductor and display manufacturing received increased focus earlier this year when the company announced its Supply Chain Certification for Environmental and Social Sustainability initiative (SuCCESS2030).
Applied Materials’ new Applied SmartFactory® Fault Detection solution offers an economic, easy-to-implement way to improve tool and process performance in the back end.
As technology evolves, so does the demand for more power. Wide bandgap (WBG) materials such as gallium nitride (GaN) are demonstrating their potential as the backbone of next-generation power semiconductors.
Semiconductor manufacturing over the past few decades has moved through several levels of technology, with each transition leading to lower costs and higher fab productivity. Now the industry is entering yet another change cycle, driven by increasing semiconductor quality requirements to meet the demands of IoT applications.
Semiconductor and display manufacturing are highly complex undertakings, but in that complexity lay many opportunities to improve the speed, efficiency, productivity and environmental impact of production tools and factory systems.
