Hear from the Expert: 3D NAND Challenges

Listen as Dr. Mark Puttock, senior director, advanced technology engagements, explains how the semiconductor industry is adapting to 3D NAND memory challenges. From extreme high aspect ratio (HAR) processing, and the need for new chemical precursors and coatings Dr. Puttock discusses what it takes to achieve critical purity and contamination requirements.

Pump it Up: Photochemical Delivery that Meets the Challenges of 3D Architectures

Photochemicals are playing an increasingly important role in bringing next generation devices to reality. While semiconductor manufacturing has always needed a pure, contamination-free environment, the requirements are tightening even further.

DRAM: Device Fabrication

DRAM architecture has remained virtually unchanged for the past decade, with the dimensions shrinking proportionally with each successive device node. This linear path, however, is reaching its limits for nodes below 20 nanometers (nm) including 1x, 1y, 1z, 1a, and 1b. A major change will be needed soon if DRAM is to keep up with advances in logic.

Cars and Chips: The Acceleration of Electronic Systems

The rapid increase of semiconductors in cars enables significant safety, connectivity, mobility, and sustainability improvements. The standards to measure reliability under the tough conditions a car presents are based on how vehicles operate today. Conventional vehicles are generally idle 95% of the time. As a result, the expected lifetime of the electronics systems is well beyond the lifetime of the vehicle itself.
