450-mm Wafers, 3D ICs, & More

Discussion of the pending moves to 450-mm wafers, 3D ICs, and and extreme ultraviolet (EUV) lithography were among the dominant topics at the 43rd Annual SEMICON West Conference in San Francisco July 8-11, 2013. SEMICON is the premier event for the display of new products and technologies for microelectronics design and manufacturing, featuring technologies from across the microelectronics supply chain, from electronic design automation, to device fabrication (wafer processing), to final manufacturing (assembly, packaging, and test). More than semiconductors, SEMICON West is also showcase for emerging markets and technologies born from the microelectronics industry, including micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS), photovoltaics (PV), flexible electronics and displays, nano-electronics, solid state lighting (LEDs), and related technologies.
