On October 26th,Industry professionals tuned in to hear the first webinar on Advanced Materials: The Dark Horse in the Semiconductor Chipmaking Race?

Endorsed by SEMI , this is the FIRST live webinar in a series of webinars to explore pressing topics on materials and semiconductor development.

This webcast has now been completed - but you are welcome to watch it On Demand - simply click on this url to view the entire webcast.

Participants learned how to best introduce new materials in chip fabrication workflows as the demand for better performance, functionality, and reliability grows for applications such as 5G, AI, VR, AR, edge computing, etc.

Merck subject matter experts discussed opportunities, challenges, and best practices in transitioning to novel process architectures and the new materials considerations for successful deployments.

Discussion topics included:

· Exploring the exciting developments in back-end-of-the-line interconnect technology.

· Transitioning from the established copper/low-k dual-damascene approach to novel metallization (such as Ru, Mo, Co, etc.), and new process integration schemes.

· Offering integrated additive (i.e., deposition) and subtractive (etch and CMP) process modules that meet aggressive KPI targets for accelerating semiconductor technology development.

Welcome remarks by

· Anand Nambiar, Global Head of Semiconductor Materials, Merck
