Global Internet of Things Day



Today, Entegris recognizes a milestone event in the semiconductor industry.

Global Internet of Things Day was first initiated by the IoT Council in 2010. It serves as an invitation to communities around the world to discuss the implications and visions for the future of IoT. The event has grown in scale and scope as advancements in smart devices connected to wireless networks (4G/5G), WiFi networks, and near field communications (NFC, RFID, Bluetooth) continue to be integrated into our everyday lives.


According to our Chief Technology Officer, Jim O'Neill, it's not enough to simply build out capacity to satisfy this demand; superior reliability and performance and IC components specific to each application also need to be considered.


The time has come for our industry to adjust its mindset and proactively address the key challenges brought on by these new technologies. It will take collaboration from across the supply chain to meet capacity, cost, performance, yield and reliability demands. By working together, higher standards will be set and the industry will be better positioned to achieve things only previously imagined.

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.
