Technologists Focus on Semiconductor Factory Productivity and Process Solutions at ASMC 2015

Manufacturers, suppliers and academia gather to discuss semiconductor manufacturing at SEMI event

SAN JOSE, Calif.  — February 25, 2015 — The annual SEMI Advanced Semiconductor Manufacturing Conference (ASMC 2015) will be held May 3-6 in Saratoga Springs, New York. The conference will feature 37 hours of technical presentations and 90+ speakers covering all aspects of advanced semiconductor manufacturing. This year’s event features a panel discussion on “Semiconductor Manufacturing: Keeping the Silicon Magic Alive,” with panelists from DARPA, GE Global Research, Lam Research and Rochester Institute of Technology.  The event features a tutorial on graphene presented by Dr. Paul L. McEuen, professor of Physics, Cornell University, and a second tutorial, on memory, presented by Dr. Gurtej Sandhu, IEEE Fellow and director of Advanced Technology Development at Micron Technology, Inc.

SEMI’s ASMC continues to be a premier venue for industry professionals to network, learn and share knowledge on new and best-method semiconductor manufacturing practices and concepts.  ASMC 2015 offers keynote talks by Dr. Thomas Caulfield, senior VP and GM of GLOBALFOUNDRIES; Dr. Frances M. Ross of the Nanoscale Materials Analysis Department at T.J. Watson Research Center, IBM Corporation; and Robert Maire, president of Semiconductor Advisors LLC.

ASMC technology tracks and poster presenters will address numerous topics, including:

  • 3D/TSV
  • Advanced Equipment and Materials
  • Advanced Metrology
  • Advanced Patterning/Design for Manufacturing
  • Advanced Process Control (APC)
  • Contamination Free Manufacturing (CFM)
  • Data and Yield Management; Defect Inspection
  • Equipment Reliability and Productivity Enhancement
  • Factory Optimization
  • Yield and Reliability Enhancement

ASMC also holds an interactive poster session and reception, which provides an ideal opportunity for networking between authors and conference attendees. During this session, participants can engage authors in in-depth discussions of a wide range of issues.  

ASMC 2015 corporate sponsors include Applied Materials, ChemTrace, CNW, Edwards, KLA-Tencor, NY Loves Nanotech, and MSP.  Technical and supporting sponsors include: Institute of Electrical & Electronics Engineers (IEEE); IEEE Electron Devices Society (EDS); and IEEE Components, Packaging and Manufacturing Technology Society (CPMT); Saratoga Convention & Tourism Board; and Saratoga Economic Development Corporation (SEDC).
