The 2011 SEMATECH Knowledge Series (SKS) will discuss the challenges and technology developments in next-generation lithography, materials and methods to enhance transistor and back-end development, and ways to improve manufacturing efficiency and yield. The worldwide conferences, symposia, and workshops are designed to enhance global knowledge and collaboration in key areas of nanoelectronics R&D by providing technology forums to explore critical issues and build industry consensus.
The SEMATECH-led workshop, Emerging Technologies in Solid State Devices, will take place December 5-6, 2009. Technologists, executives, and faculty from across the semiconductor R&D community will present technical data revealing advances in emerging memory technologies, energy efficient devices, and high mobility channel transistors. The SEMATECH workshop will feature over 40 presentations and panel discussions on cutting-edge solutions to the technical and manufacturing challenges associated with emerging nanoelectronics technologies.
