2022 Master Class Series: New Ways to Wire and Integrate Chips
Join Applied Materials technology experts as they detail the chip industry’s critical wiring and interconnect challenges and solutions, from transistors to systems. The class will include new wiring solutions that enable chipmakers to overcome the electrical resistance challenges associated with EUV scaling. They will detail a new backside power distribution network technology that can improve chip power consumption by 25% and increase logic density by 30% with no changes in lithography. They will also discuss how heterogeneous chip design and integration with hybrid bonding and new, advanced substrates will enable the industry to deliver simultaneous improvements in chip and system performance, power, area and cost. Several new products and technologies will be introduced and demonstrated.

9AM - 10AM for presentations, followed by Q&A

May 26, 2022 09:00 AM in Pacific Time (US and Canada)
