Abstract :

The advent of artificial intelligence (AI) has had a disruptive impact on the state of the art of technology at all levels of abstraction. AI’s explosive growth demands significantly revolutionary and enabling improvements of >100X for memory density + bandwidth, latency + performance, and energy consumption + overall environmental sustainability. With device innovation at its core, present day technology development focuses on emerging methodologies that require co-optimization of all orders of abstraction such as system, design, devices, technology and even materials aka SDDTMCO. This talk will highlight the opportunities and challenges the industry faces in transitioning from established to novel process architectures that require new materials for successful deployment. Our ability as materials suppliers to offer integrated additive process modules that meet customers’ aggressive performance and reliability target key performance indices (KPIs) will be crucial to accelerating semiconductor technology development. Moreover, technological progress can be further accelerated by embracing digital transformation to explore our exploration space and enable innovation.
