Geothermal Power Offers Key Benefits for Sustainable Manufacturing

According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA), U.S. production and consumption of non-hydro renewable energy sources (i.e., biofuels, biomass, geothermal, solar, wind) set new records in the first half of 2018. Of these sources, geothermal, while still relatively nascent in its implementation, holds great promise. Integrating geothermal systems for heating and cooling into a high-volume manufacturing facility – e.g., those producing semiconductor devices and materials – can yield energy and cost savings, while maintaining safety standards.

Solving the Truck Driver Shortage Through AI

According to the American Trucking Association, there is a shortage of roughly 50,000 truck drivers across the country. In 2017, the ATA predicted the trucking industry would experience the highest level of driver shortfall, and by 2026 the ATA estimates the shortage could swell to over 174,000 drivers.

Six Steps to Structured Problem Solving

What happens when a big problem pops up?  For most of us, our first reaction is, “Quick!  Let’s fix it and make this problem go away.” However, if we rush to fix the problem too quickly, we may end up implementing a “solution” or “quick fix” that doesn’t solve anything because we didn’t take the time to truly identify and understand the root cause of the problem itself.

Plastic: A Brief History & Outlook

Plastic defined means “pliable and easily shaped.” According to the Science History Institute, plastic only recently became a name for a category of materials called polymers. Over time, humans have learned how to make synthetic polymers that are strong, lightweight and flexible.

Sacrificial Laser Release Materials for RDL-First Fan-out Packaging

 Article published in Chip Scale review's March - April 2018; Volume 22, Number 2 Issue

The semiconductor industry is in a new age where device scaling will not continue to provide the cost reductions or performance improvements at a similar rate to past years when Moore’s law was the guiding principle for IC scaling. The cost of scaling below 7 nm nodes is rising substantially and requires significant investment in capital equipment and R&D spending for next-generation lithography solutions. The demand for higher performance, smaller form factor, denser integration, and lower-cost devices is increasing more than ever due to significant progress made in products and services developed for consumer electronics, mobile devices, cloud computing, automotive, and various other applications. While the semiconductor industry continues to advance scaling of the integrated circuits, it is also turning to advanced packaging technologies to increase performance and integration while lowering costs.
