New ClassOne chamber cuts copper plating costs 95%
piątek, 21 kwietnia 2017 09:50

ClassOne Technology announced it's new CopperMax chamber - an innovative design that is demonstrating major copper plating cost reductions for users of ≤200mm wafers. ClassOne cited actual performance data from a CopperMax pilot installation on a Solstice tool at a Fortune 100 customer. Over a six-month period the customer tracked their actual production operating costs while using the new chamber for copper TSV, Damascene and high-rate copper plating. For the three processes with CopperMax they reported that operating costs were reduced between 95.8% and 98.4% compared with previously used conventional plating chambers.

Demand helps Dutch high-tech group ASML book strong first quarter
czwartek, 20 kwietnia 2017 19:59

Dutch computer chip maker and global high-tech bellwether ASML said that sales and profits soared in the first quarter amid "strong demand" across the sector. Net sales for the first quarter of 2017 were stronger than expected, jumping 46 percent to 1.94 billion euros. Net income also more than doubled leaping to 452 million euros from 198 million in the first quarter of 2016. ASML president Peter Wennink said there had been "strong demand from all sectors of the industry" and the company expected the trend to continue in the second quarter of 2017 when sales could reach 2 billion euros.

STMicroelectronics to use Macronix chips in MCUs
czwartek, 20 kwietnia 2017 17:50

Macronix International Co said STMicroelectronics NV has adopted its ultra-low-power flash memory chips for its new advanced microcontroller used in Internet-of-Things devices. It is the latest move by Macronix to expand its business in the IoT sector. Macronix said that the IoT is rapidly emerging as one of three new applications that would drive strong demand for NOR flash memory chips and is likely to fuel the chipmaker’s growth.

3D NAND flash output to increase in 2H 2017
czwartek, 20 kwietnia 2017 15:54

According to sources within the memory industry, global production of 3D NAND flash memory chips is expected to expand substantially in the second half of 2017, exceeding the output of 2D NAND chips by the fourth quarter of the year. Sources say that yield rates for major suppliers of 3D NAND technology have been relatively instable since the beginning of 2017. Suppliers including Samsung Electronics, Micron, Western Digital and Toshiba have all introduced 64-layer 3D NAND flash products, while SK Hynix recently introduced the industry’s first 72-layer 3D NAND chips.

NXP sells stake in China foundry ASMC
czwartek, 20 kwietnia 2017 14:02

NXP Semiconductors NV said it sold its 27 percent remaining stake in Advanced Semiconductor Manufacturing Corp. Ltd., a chip foundry based in China. ASMC began as a joint venture in the late 1980s between the Chinese Government and Royal Philips Electronics NV , the Dutch giant that eventually spun off NXP. ASMC exclusively made chips for Philips for years. It has two 8-inch wafer fabs in Shanghai. NXP said it sold its 421.45 million shares, representing 27.47 percent ownership of ASMIC, for $53.7 million to Shanghai Pudong Science and Technology Investment Co. Ltd.

Qualcomm results beat help allay worries over Apple dispute
czwartek, 20 kwietnia 2017 12:04

Qualcomm Inc reported quarterly revenue and profit that beat analysts' estimates, helping ease concerns surrounding the company's dispute with Apple Inc. Investors pushed the company shares up 2.4 percent to $53.85 in after-market trading on Wednesday. The iPhone maker sued Qualcomm in January, accusing the chipmaker of overcharging for its chips and refusing to pay some $1 billion in promised rebates. Qualcomm said on Wednesday that Apple's contract manufacturers underpaid royalties in the second quarter, but revenue was not affected as the amount was similar to what Apple claimed Qualcomm owed it.

Graphene 'copy machine' may produce cheap semiconductor wafers
czwartek, 20 kwietnia 2017 10:08

In 2016, annual global semiconductor sales reached their highest-ever point, at $339 billion worldwide. In that same year, the semiconductor industry spent about $7.2 billion worldwide on wafers that serve as the substrates for microelectronics components. A new technique developed by MIT engineers may vastly reduce the overall cost of wafer technology and enable devices made from more exotic, higher-performing semiconductor materials than conventional silicon. The new method uses graphene as a sort of "copy machine" to transfer intricate crystalline patterns from an underlying semiconductor wafer to a top layer of identical material.

Samsung completes qualification of its 2nd generation 10nm process technology
czwartek, 20 kwietnia 2017 07:57

Samsung Electronics announced that its second generation 10-nm FinFET process technology, 10LPP, has been qualified and is ready for production. With further enhancement in 3D FinFET structure, 10LPP allows up to 10-percent higher performance or 15-percent lower power consumption compared to the first generation 10LPE process with the same area scaling. Samsung was the first in the industry to begin mass production of system-on-chips products on 10LPE last October. The latest Samsung Galaxy S8 smartphones are powered by some of these SoCs.
