Screen

SCREEN Semiconductor Solutions (SCREEN) has been established as a group company of SCREEN Holdings. It inherits all of the semiconductor equipment business from its predecessor, Dainippon Screen. SCREEN is a specialized manufacturer of semiconductor production equipment in various areas such as wafer cleaning equipment, lithography equipment and anneals, and is one of the world's top 10 suppliers. It has been continuously held the number one position in the global market for semiconductor cleaning processes thanks to a range of core etching, photolithographic and image processing technologies it has successfully developed over many years. SCREEN has also built an extensive lineup of equipment, including its flagship 300 mm models and Frontier series. While 300 mm systems deliver the superior functionality and productivity required by the cutting-edge device market, the Frontier series provides advanced handling of various substrate sizes and materials 200 mm and smaller for the IoT device market. SCREEN always maintains a close relationship with each of its customers as it seeks to develop new comprehensive solutions to the needs of these rapidly growing markets. These efforts are founded on strong and innovative manufacturing. Even in this current era of dramatic change, SCREEN is completely dedicated to sustaining its manufacturing practices and is constantly working with all members of the SCREEN Group to further refine its core technologies.

SILVER SPONSORS
FMC

FMC - The Ferroelectric Memory Company solves one of the most important hardware challenges in the age of Internet-of-Things. Fabless companies as well as semiconductor manufacturers are nowadays looking for embedded nonvolatile memory solutions (eNVM) that enable products like microcontrollers (MCU) to follow Moore’s law. However, legacy eNVM solutions like eFlash cannot provide cost effective solutions that are so in need for the age of IoT. FMC commercializes a disruptive material innovation that will solve this problem for current and future technology nodes, i.e. eNVM based on ferroelectric hafnium oxide (FE-HfO2). The unexpected physical effect of ferroelectricity in HfO2 allows for the transformation of classical high-k metal-gate (HKMG) transistors into nonvolatile ferroelectric field effect transistors (FeFET). In this way, MCUs can easily be scaled from e.g. 65 nm down to 28 nm and beyond enabling tremendous advantages for the overall system: SoC cost reduction of around 80%, per bit write energy reduction by a factor of 1000 and an overall performance gain of the system of around 70% due to the transition to advanced process nodes. Due to the close relation of FeFET and CMOS baseline, there is no roadblock for FMC’s technology to be applied to cutting-edge technology nodes like 22 nm FDSOI, 1X nm FinFET and beyond.
