SEMI Northeast Chapter Presents: Today’s Challenges, Tomorrow’s Opportunities

Wednesday, September 10, 2014
10:00 AM-1:00 PM
SUNY College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering (CNSE) 257 Fuller Road Albany, NY 12203

The semiconductor roadmap is at yet another crossroads-- Is this one truly the end of Moore's Law? Yet, even as the development of EUV and 450mm slow, and the path to 14nm uncertain, the industry rises to meet today's challenges and creates tomorrow's growth opportunity. Emerging innovations in DLS and 3D may fill the void, but what other solutions are being discussed?

Find the answers to these questions and more.  Join your colleagues as industry experts, from
Intel (G450C), SEMATECH, GLOBALFOUNDRIES and Lam Research, discuss:

  • Status of current technologies
  • Cost solutions
  • How the industry can meet future hurdles
  • and more...

Following the lunch, attendees can participate in a tour of the CNSE 450mm facility.  To sign up, contact
