Air Products has joined the Front End Processes (FEP) program of the not-for-profit consortium SEMATECH, and will work with the organization to assess advanced materials and technologies for the development of sub-10 nm node III-V devices.
Continued scaling in the electronics business will require the use of new materials and chemistries to keep pace with the International Technology Roadmap for Semiconductors (ITRS).
The goal of SEMATECH’s FEP program is to provide novel leading-edge materials, processes, structural modules and electrical and physical characterization methods to support the continued scaling of logic and memory applications.
Air Products will closely collaborate with SEMATECH’s engineers and leverage SEMATECH’s activities in advanced materials to enable better understanding of the underlying principles responsible for the deposition of III-V structures.
The goal will be to help guide the development of new chemical products that address a wide variety of needs for next generation semiconductor devices.
Electronic Fluorocarbons (EFC), headquartered in Massachusetts, utilizes the latest technology for the purification and microanalysis of its legacy fluorinated specialty gases and rare gases for the medical and electronics semiconductor manufacturing industries.
As we head in to 2018, we look back on a very interesting changing market for krypton (Kr), xenon (Xe) and neon (Ne) in 2017. Ne supply this year continued to increase as new plants came on-stream while the demand was growing slowly after the big decline of 2016.
Electronics manufacturing is a highly complex sequence of adding and subtracting material, with the resulting sum yielding circuits sometimes less than one hundred atoms wide. For over 50 years, Moore’s Law has driven an industry to make smaller devices on larger scales.
GTCR, a leading private equity firm, has recently completed the previously announced acquisition of Cole-Parmer Instrument Company from Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc.
Tech Air, a Connecticut-based distributor of industrial, medical, and specialty gases, and related welding supplies, announced that it has acquired US Oxygen Supply (US Oxygen) of Arlington, Texas, and Specialty Air Technologies (SAT) of Long Beach, California. Tech Air is owned by CI Capital Partners and Tech Air ...
