Newly Merged SUNY CNSE/SUNYIT to Share Insights into Next-Generation Semiconductor Technology Development During SEMICON West 2014 Conference

Albany, NY | Posted on June 30th, 2014

The newly merged SUNY College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering (CNSE) / SUNY Institute of Technology (SUNYIT) announced today that it will play a pivotal role at the SEMICON West 2014 conference as its team of leading researchers, in addition to scientists from the institution's numerous corporate partners, take part in groundbreaking presentations and informational sessions to update the computer chip industry on the advancement of semiconductor-based research and development—including innovations paving the way for the transition to the industry's new 450mm wafer standard.

"In furtherance of New York Governor Andrew Cuomo's strategic support of the state's rapidly expanding high-tech ecosystem, we are excited to once again play an industry-shaping role at SEMICON West. Top researchers, both from the NanoCollege and our growing number of corporate partners, will share a powerful story of technological evolution at New York's innovation clusters," said Dr. Alain Kaloyeros, Chief Executive Officer and Officer in Charge of the newly merged SUNY CNSE/SUNYIT institution. "We look forward to providing Global 450mm Consortium (G450C) progress updates on the transition from 300mm to 450mm wafers, in addition to information about other semiconductor-based advancements, and are thrilled to partner with New York's Empire State Development agency to trumpet all that the state's 21st Century economy has to offer."

During SEMICON West 2014, the top international micro- and nanoelectronics industry trade show, CNSE/SUNYIT leaders and researchers will provide nearly one dozen presentations detailing the advanced research being conducted at the NanoCollege's state-of-the-art facilities as it leads to faster and more efficiently produced computer chips. Additionally, representatives from the newly merged CNSE/SUNYIT's numerous global corporate partners plan to present at the conference, including Applied Materials, ASML, GLOBALFOUNDRIES, IBM, Intel, KLA-Tencor, Nikon Precision, Samsung, SEMATECH, Tokyo Electron, and TSMC.

Presenters will also detail the four newly formed technology development centers, based at the Albany Nanotech Complex, which will be jointly managed by the newly merged SUNY CNSE/SUNYIT and SEMATECH. The centers will focus on Chemical Mechanical Polishing/Planarization (CMP), 3D (computer chip packaging), Resist, and III-V compounds, respectively, to enable companies to assess their materials, test new tooling, and validate designs through access to the newly merged CNSE/SUNYIT's advanced fabrication facilities and engineering know-how, in addition to SEMATECH's network of consortium members.

"New York State continues to chart a pioneering path for the semiconductor industry under the leadership of Governor Andrew Cuomo, and we are thrilled to attend SEMICON West 2014 to update other industry participants on both the leading-edge chip research and development work being conducted from Albany to Buffalo, as well as the NanoCollege's unique business model, as they offer unmatched potential for growth and technological innovation," said Paul Farrar, G450C General Manager; Vice President for Manufacturing Innovation of the newly merged CNSE/SUNYIT; and PVMC CEO. "We look forward to playing a major role at this year's conference, and in partnership with Empire State Development, we are excited to share New York's growth story as it enables next-generation computer chip research, development, deployment, and commercialization."

In addition to sharing insight into how the newly merged CNSE/SUNYIT-led research is propelling computer chip advancements, the institution will also provide information about its cutting-edge capabilities and technology development center partners at an exhibition booth. In partnership with New York State's Empire State Development agency, the booth will feature representatives from the newly merged SUNY CNSE/SUNYIT who can provide more information about the world-class institution and all it offers to top-tier, high-tech corporations. Visitors will be able to learn about New York's powerful business incentives, such as Governor Andrew Cuomo's innovative Start-Up NY initiative that establishes tax-free communities across New York State, including at the newly merged SUNY CNSE/SUNYIT's high-tech hubs located in Albany, Halfmoon, Utica, Syracuse, Rochester, Canandaigua, and Buffalo. Booth number 517 will be located in the Moscone Center's South Hall, and representatives will be available Tuesday, July 8, through Wednesday, July 9, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; and on Thursday, July 10, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

"Empire State Development is proud to partner with the newly merged CNSE/SUNYIT at SEMICON West, connecting with top corporations in the semiconductor field to showcase New York State's economic development efforts that have led to an unparalleled platform for businesses," said Empire State Development President, CEO & Commissioner Kenneth Adams. "We look forward to sharing what New York has to offer, including Governor Andrew Cuomo's tax-free START-UP NY program that can be a game-changer for any company looking to grow."

As part of the SEMICON West 2014 conference, presentations by the newly merged SUNY CNSE/SUNYIT researchers and corporate partners will provide critical industry updates, specifically as they detail progress made by the G450C. Presentation topics include, "450mm Lithography," "450mm Notchless Wafer Update," "G450C Technology Development Program Status," "450mm Transition Status and Briefing," "Readiness of Advanced Lithography Technologies for High-Volume Manufacturing," "Chemical Mechanical Polishing Market Trends and Technology Advances," "Sustainable Manufacturing Forum: Next Generation Eco Fab," and "Driving Transistor Technology Sub-10nm: Process and Equipment Directions at the newly merged CNSE/SUNYIT."

The G450C is a first-of-its-kind collaboration between five leading international companies that are currently laying the groundwork for the industry transition from 300mm to 450mm wafers, enabling more computer chips to be fabricated upon the larger wafer's surface at a lower cost per chip. The internationally recognized effort is headquartered at the newly merged SUNY CNSE/SUNYIT's unrivalled $20 billion Albany NanoTech Complex.

SEMICON West is the annual tradeshow for the microelectronics manufacturing industries where leaders within those industries present research and other sector-shaping progress reports to attendees from around the world. In addition to showcasing hundreds of product displays, the event also features applications ranging from micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS) to nanoelectronics. The conference runs from July 8 through July 10 in San Francisco, California.
