Wrapping up the First Ever SEMICON West 2020 Virtual Event

Entegris recently wrapped up an exciting week at the first-ever SEMICON West virtual event. The event provided a great opportunity to connect with the community and gain valuable insight into the future of the industry.

From July 20 – 23, we welcomed nearly 500 visitors to our virtual booth, and over 200 joined our live, interactive webinars. If you missed us, we invite you to view our recorded sessions by REGISTERING FOR FREE below:


ENTEGRIS TECHNOLOGY FORUM: Acceleration of the Materials Era

Join Entegris SVP and Chief Technology Officer, Jim O’Neill in this recorded webinar as he discusses:

  • Effects of COVID-19 on semiconductor growth
  • Increasing materials intensity in the era of materials advancement and putting it all together.This presentation is moderated by Wenge Yang, VP of market strategy, and includes live Q&A with Entegris technology experts.


Polishing Chemically Inert and Mechanically Hard Materials

As new materials are being introduced into semiconductor manufacturing, new CMP techniques are needed to address challenges with material hardness and chemical inertness.

In this recorded webinar, Dr. Rajiv Singh, VP, CMP slurries, addresses methods to achieve high polish rates and enhanced surface finish in silicon carbide, gallium nitride, sapphire, and carbon-based materials.


Effective Slurry Concentration Monitoring Using Refractive Index

Understanding the amount of solids in slurry is critical to determining an accurate Material Removal Rate (MRR) for CMP solutions. Index of Refraction (IoR) technology enables concentration monitoring of turbid and nonconductive materials.

Join Tracy Gast, global applications engineer, in this recorded webinar as he introduces a new liquid concentration monitor based on IoR technology that offers high accuracy and repeatability with an optional automated in situ window cleaner to ensure measure stability over time.


Enabling Yield Advantages

A semiconductor manufacturer may have a fleet of FOUPs that handle wafers hundreds of times throughout the manufacturing process. These microenvironments are trusted to be free of contaminants and conductance, but like any other mechanical object they have parts that wear over time.

Join Yossi Lax, global service manager and technology specialist, in this recorded webinar to learn the best methods for properly maintaining FOUP fleets to increase yield.


Entegris Supply Chain Forum

Join Neil Richards, SVP global operations and supply chain, and Sandy Gauthier, VP global supply management as they discuss:

  • The purity roadmap for materials and filtration
  • Navigating supply chain challenges resulting from COVID-19
  • Collaboration and localization to ensure continuity

This presentation is followed by live Q&A with Entegris operational experts.


SEMI has also made their virtual platform available through September 20, so there is still time to check it out by registering here!

Congratulations to Our 2020 Inventors and IP Award Winners!

To keep pace with the global demand and the rapid advancements in technology, the microelectronics industry depends heavily on innovating new solutions and processes to enable accelerated device production and performance. At Entegris, we are very proud to honor nearly 200 employees from our global technical community for their inventions and contributions to our intellectual property in 2020.

Precision Engineered Techniques for Coating Plasma Chamber Components

Migration from 2D to 3D structures for high-density memory devices changes the nature of etching and deposition processes, especially as the number of layers for 3D NAND integration grows to 96 and beyond, and new process chemistries become commonplace. The greater number of lengthy processing steps and high aspect ratio (HAR) features involved place new demands on all steps of the chip manufacturing process, including etching, deposition, and cleaning equipment. Consistent process stability becomes harder to achieve.
