Agere Systems have announced from its UK office that its engineers have found the right mix of packaging ingredients to enable the semiconductor industry to successfully implement lead-free packaging. The company's states that research found a tin-nickel combination in semiconductor packaging mitigates "tin whisker" problem and improves long-term reliability of lead-free devices. To solve the problem, Agere added a layer of nickel between the layers of tin and copper and discovered that tin whisker growth was mitigated in that scenario.

A quantum mechanical 3D simulator for semiconductor devices has been created under the EU Nanotechnology Computer Aided Design (NANOTCAD) project. The Simulator for Nanodevices (SIMNAD) can be used to compute the quantum mechanical charge density and tunnel probabilities in semiconductor nano-structures of diverse material geometries. SIMNAD acts complementarily to the commercial DESSIS-ISE device simulator, allowing the interchange of data and simulations in coupled mode. The coupling scheme of the two simulators provides a package enabling the simultaneous modelling of a 3D quantum-mechanical charge distribution in a sub-region of a larger device, which is under full operation.
