Schemes strip cost out of chip R&D

A startup will surface at Semicon West here today with a portfolio of technologies that it says can speed chip designs and processes from lab to fab, reining in runaway R&D costs and even allowing the function to be outsourced. The approach is just one of a host of initiatives being pitched to remake the chip industry's research-and-development model.

Intermolecular Inc. (San Jose, Calif.) says its High-Productivity Combinatorial (HPC) platform of "fab in a lab" technologies will facilitate R&D of IC materials, processes and device structures. The startup is offering a trio of programs.
