Connecting Automotive and Semiconductor Supply Chains to Drive Functional Safety Excellence

Electronic devices now serve as the backbone of modern vehicles and have become the focus of quality standards that ensure automotive functional safety. As automakers transform their organizations to adapt and become experts in manufacturing digital machines, current gaps in how the automotive and semiconductor supply chains interact have emerged.

In 2018, SEMI created a collaboration platform to facilitate discussions, exchange information, and partner to collectively help the semiconductor and automotive industries evolve with the next generation of automated transportation. The Global Automotive Advisory Council (GAAC) is driven through the SEMI Smart Mobility initiative and brings together more than 80 companies along the value chain.

In a recent panel discussion, CARIAD SE, a Volkswagen Group company, Entegris, and SEMI shared their perspectives on how the automaker and other members of the automotive electronics ecosystem can collaborate to address new challenges facing the automotive industry.

Magnetic Bead Removal Using Microcarrier and Cell Separation System

Inconsistent results and deviation are major issues in cell therapy manufacturing, primarily resulting from historically manual methods, scarcity of proprietary tools, and lack of operator training. With this difficult process also comes another hurdle–time. Providing a safe vein-to-vein transmission is critical when a patient is waiting (in many cases) for lifesaving therapy. How can we bridge the gap between speed, quality, safety, and consistency?

Minimizing Filter Plugging: A Guide for Biologic Contamination Control Technologies

Within the life sciences industry, controlling biological and micro contaminants in process streams is vital to improving operating efficiency and the enablement of technological advances such as modern drug development and monoclonal antibodies (mAbs). Sterile filtration plays a critical role in protecting vital bioprocesses and is the cornerstone in eliminating contaminants. But what happens when a filter gets plugged and how can you minimize impact on filtration performance?

Entegris and Kuhner Shaker: Orbital Shaken Bioreactors and Single-Use Bags

Entegris is proud to collaborate with Kuhner Shaker in the development of a 2500 L single-use bag that could exceed their complex requirements while meeting their production needs at scale. Delivering a reproducible product every time, with the ability for specialized applications across scales is what Entegris does best, and this joint effort is no exception. Kuhner evaluated several bag designs for robustness in their 30-day shaking process that were not able to meet the requirements. The Entegris design not only met the need for 30 days of use but was still going strong over 100 days of continuous use.
