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 2010 Symposia on VLSI Technology and Circuits will feature technology experts from SEMATECH. The event will take June 15-18 at the Hilton Hawaiian Village in Honolulu, Hawaii. SEMATECH will discuss the power and performance features that are critical to implementing next-generation devices, based on leading-edge research in areas such as logic and memory technologies, high-k/metal gate (HKMG) materials, and non-planar and planar CMOS technologies including exciting new high mobility channels and finFET designs.
