EV Group (EVG), a leading supplier of wafer bonding and lithography equipment for the MEMS, nanotechnology and semiconductor markets, today announced that it is partnering with DELO, a leading manufacturer of industrial high-tech adhesives, in the area of wafer-level optics (WLO). Both companies, well-known for their leading roles in optical sensor manufacturing, are combining efforts to enable novel optical devices and applications, such as biometric authentication and facial
Picosun Group, the leading provider of AGILE ALD™ (Atomic Layer Deposition) thin film coating solutions, has launched PICOSUN™ Morpher, a new ALD product platform designed to disrupt the up to 200 mm wafer markets in Beyond and More than Moore domains.
ClassOne Technology, a leading supplier of wet-process semiconductor manufacturing tools, today announced the relocation and opening of its technology demonstration and applications laboratory.
Worldwide silicon wafer area shipments dropped 5.6 percent during the first quarter 2019 when compared to the fourth quarter 2018 and are now at their lowest level since the fourth quarter of 2017 after silicon wafer shipments for the most recent quarter declined 1 percent quarter-over-quarter, according to the SEMI Silicon Manufacturers Group (SMG) in its quarterly analysis of the silicon wafer industry.
Worldwide sales of semiconductor manufacturing equipment surged 14 percent from $56.62 billion in 2017 to an all-time high of $64.5 billion in 2018, SEMI, the industry association representing the worldwide electronics product design and manufacturing supply chain, reported today.
CAPE® is a transportable, tent-like cleanroom facility developed by researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute for Manufacturing Engineering and Automation IPA. It can be installed both indoors and in unexposed outdoor locations, and takes less than an hour to set up.
Bioquell offers a unique opportunity to broaden Ecolab’s portfolio of products, services, and solutions. Bioquell’s expertise in bio-decontamination and deep-cleaning utilizing vaporized hydrogen peroxide technologies complements Ecolab’s daily cleaning and disinfection offerings for cleanrooms and other high-grade environments.
The PSC filing, including a five-year capital investment overview and detailed one-year plan for 2019, sets forth the projects Ameren Missouri plans to implement to modernize energy grid infrastructure in Missouri to benefit its customers and offer them more tools to manage their energy usage.
Ten years into the future — that’s about how far UC Santa Barbara electrical and computer engineering professor John Bowers and his research team are reaching with the recent development of their mode-locked quantum dot lasers on silicon. It’s technology that not only can massively increase the data transmission capacity of data centers, telecommunications companies and network hardware products to come, but do so with high stability, low noise and the energy efficiency of silicon photonics.
QuantumClean & ChemTrace will demonstrate how its ultra-high purity chamber tool part cleaning, proprietary coatings and microcontamination analytical testing can help reduce wafer fabrication Cost-of-Ownership (CoO). Solutions’ information is available during show hours at SEMICON Europa at the Messe München Exhibition Center in Munich, Germany from November 13 — 16, 2018 (booth A4510).
The researchers created a new technology design for field effect transistors, which are basic switching devices in computers and other electronic devices. Those types of transistors also are promising candidates for next generation nanodevices. They can offer better switching behavior for computers and devices compared with traditional field effect transistors.
The discovery of slow, low-energy electrons produced by the intense laser cluster interactions provides a missing link in scientists’ understanding of the process, and could explain why biomolecules are damaged. Intense laser cluster interactions were known to produce energetic ions and electrons, but now, in a paper published today in Physical Review Letters, researchers have revealed that relatively slow electrons or low-energy electrons are also produced in large quantities.

Semiconductor Industry News and Advancements
The Semiconductor Industry is a collection of companies, researchers and engineers who are actively involved in the design and fabrication of semiconductor devices. The semiconductor industry formed in the early 1960’s. Since semiconductors became a lucrative and thriving sector of the microelectronics industry, it has grown to be over $400 billion industry.
Semiconductor Fabrication Companies
Following are some of the larger semiconductor design and fabrication companies across the globe:
- Samsung Electronics
- SK Hynix
- Micron Technology
- Texas Instruments
- Western Digital
The semiconductor cleanroom industry produces the controlled cleanroom environments whereby the semiconductor products are fabricated and packaged. These semiconductor cleanroom facilities are often called “semiconductor fabrication facilities” or “Fab”. Our semiconductor industry news brings you recent updates and innovations from companies and researchers who fabricate an array of semiconductor products for different applications.
Semiconductor Industry News Covering all Semiconductor Products
Cleanroom connect curates semiconductor industry news covering a variety of companies and products. The primary developments of Semiconductor Fabrication companies are: Memory, Microprocessors, Commodity Integrated Circuits, and Complex SOCs.
- Memory: Memory chips store data and pass information between computer devices.
- Microprocessors: The central processing units that deliver logic to execute tasks for processes in an electronic device or computer.
