What was new this year at SEMICON® West? This July, semiconductor professionals gathered virtually and in person at the Moscone Convention Center to make connections, exchange ideas, and discover what’s on the horizon for the industry.
The High-Voltage Innovations Behind Moore’s Law
July 06, 2022
By Ray Morgan
Anyone associated with the semiconductor industry – and many people who aren’t – will be familiar with Moore’s Law, the concept that the number of transistors (and, thus, the processing power) per unit of integrated circuit (IC) area doubles every two years.
Accurate Prediction of Vacuum Capacitor Lifetime Reduces Unplanned Downtime by 80%
June 22, 2022
The failure of any key element or subsystem in a semiconductor manufacturing facility has the potential to bring the process to a complete standstill and/or to force costly wafer scrap.
The Future of Semiconductor Manufacturing: Reflecting on the 2022 SEMI Industry Strategy Symposium
April 19, 2022
