5G Moscone North, Lower Level, Room 22 Wednesday, July 11
1:00pm to 4:30pm

SOI technology is at the base of cellular wireless connectivity: 4G and 5G are driving up the demand for both 300mm and 200mm capacity, both in short supply.  The 4G expansion and the introduction of 5G are also enlarging the scope to new applications and new frequency ranges, up to supporting mm-wave. The demand is not only about supporting continuously growing volumes, but requires to develop solutions using differentiated silicon technologies (RF-SOI, PD-SOI, FD-SOI) and to offer integrated system solutions (in-package modules, including integrated antennas). 

This workshop will develop such requirements and the current solutions available from a supply chain perspective, involving substrate suppliers, equipment and material suppliers (for both substrate/silicon manufacturing and packaging solutions), and foundries.

SCIS Moscone South, TechXPOT South Tuesday, July 10
10:30am to 12:30pm

There is a great urgency in preparing the supply chain to enable HVM at 7nm and beyond. To date, there has been no industry alignment on how defects are measured on various components and subcomponents or on how these results are reported. This is especially alarming when several yield excursions have been linked to a wide range of component- and subcomponent-induced defectivity. Furthermore, current component and subcomponent defect traceability lacks the rigor for advanced technologies, particularly with regard to detectability, sensitivity, and methodology. Finally, while some standards exist, they are often inadequate for addressing advanced process control requirements. In order for the industry to determine what the particle and defectivity limits will be at advanced nodes, there first needs to be an understanding of current contributions of various process-critical components. 

In this session, efforts on baseline measurements for critical components, developed under the SEMI Semiconductor Components, Instruments & Subsystems (SCIS) Special Interest Group will be presented. The session will also provide case studies on how these methods influence component selection, utlimately reducing defectivity during manufacturing.

The automotive industry is experiencing seminal change as traditional and emerging OEMs address a new paradigm of electrification and automated driving architecture. Supporting this new mobility paradigm will drastically transform the supply chain. According to CLSA, the global added value of automotive R&D provided by partners will increase from 40% in 2013 to 53% by 2025. How are OEMs, Tier 1s, and new technology providers adapting to this shift? Who is at the center of the profit chain and how do all the players intend to stay relevant? This expert lineup of speakers will explore the evolution of the new vehicle technology-stack supply chain and address the key issues:

  • How will system architecture of future automotive electronics evolve? Which sensors will be implemented?  
  • What types of processors (GPUs, CPUs or FPGAs) and memory (DRAM, Flash) will affect the computing evolution?
  • Will electronics manufacturing service ompanies play a larger role in the future car?
  • How will cars communicate with other vehicles and infrastructure like cities, roads, and buildings? What new materials will be required?
  • Which wireless network technology will be leveraged for smart car and infotainment systems — LTE or 5G?
  • How quickly and where will EVs grow worldwide, and how will this impact architecture requirements?

The proliferation of consumer devices, the huge increase in data services, and the growing storage demands for a variety of data types have already lead to a growth in data centers. The next wave of demand will focus on driving even higher performance out of systems that input, compute, and store data. Further technical complexity will stem from the need to integrate newer optical and AI systems.

This session will focus on the increasing heterogeneity of these high performance computing systems, as well as new demands on the integration technologies needed. We will also look into some of the manufacturing technologies enabling the next generation of high performance computing.

In this follow-up session, we move from the data center to the edge. In order to support critical systems at the edge – from autonomous vehicles to smart manufacturing solutions in the factory – it is becoming increasingly clear that some  degree of AI capabilities will need to be integrated into edge devices. However, given the increased complexity of these AI devices, the demands on interconnect, packaging, and integration will be significant. The systems will need to manage increasingly complex operations and do so with ultra-low power, small form factors, and in sometimes challenging environments.

Come learn about the emerging technologies that will enable the next generation of AI at the edge.

Customers in the clouds have begun to demand supplier diversity in the tiered layers below.  It started with governments pushing their suppliers. Now industrial companies call for change are raining down on the semiconductor industry, which has just started to trickle down on their supply chains. The question is, how can we get ahead of what could turn into a flood of demands and turn requirements into long-term benefits. Benefits that include getting the best ideas and perspectives turned into profitable practices and innovative solutions. Our panel will address: 

  • Why is supply chain diversity important beyond being a nice thing to do? 
  • Are there real examples of how it’s strengthened a company’s business? How did they take advantage of it? 
  • What metrics are customers in the cloud using to measure supplier diversity? 
  • What’s Tier 2 Supplier Diversity and how will it apply to the semiconductor supply chain? 
  • What are the complexities of it in the most geographically diverse industry in the world? 
  • What barriers will we face and how to we overcome them? 
  • When will requests turn into requirements from final customers?

Will EUVL have a prominent role at 5nm? Hints that it will came out of the mid-2017 announcement of the first 5nm gate-all-around chip using EUVL. Many leading-edge semiconductor manufacturers have announced plans to introduce EUVL within the 2018-2019 timeframe. Additionally, papers presented at recent lithography-focused conferences indicated progress in both Extreme Ultraviolet (EUV) tools and process. This session will explore the progress being made in EUVL and its potential for the economics to make sense for HVM. There will also be a discussion of other lithography solutions that can address the march to 5nm and below.

The announcement of a 5nm silicon chip using horizontal gate-all-around transistors in 2017 is just one more indication that the industry will continue some form of traditional scaling combined with 3D architectures as long as it possibly can. Along with this scenario we also see a type of scaling enabled by 3D IC technologies such as die stacking and the stacking of very small geometry wafers. Additionally, interconnect scaling will continue to be utilized. This session will provide an update on the evolution of scaling and discribe how the various players (foundry, IDM, fabless, and application developers) are jockeying for a leadership position with respect to innovation.

Test Moscone North, Room 20 Wednesday, July 11
8:00am to 3:00pm

The growth in autonomous driving and "everything connected" is spurring  demand for semiconductors. Due to both higher coverage requirements and lower average selling prices the trend is putting greater pressure on test costs. Test must become smarter to address increased quality demands, while at the same time remain economical.

Greater computational power coupled with increased analog and sensor content will force changes in test strategies due to more advanced packaging, heterogeneous integration, higher performance analog, and increasing RF complexity. To address these challenges, all tools in the arsenal must be brought to bear, including increasing test instrumentation integration, smarter test strategies, self-test, adaptive test, system-level test, and more sophisticated test hardware.

At Test Vision 2020, we’ll ask: What can we do differently to provide testing cost effectively with dppm rates approaching zero? What R&D tools are needed for today’s and tomorrow’s devices? What will test cell (ATE, fixtures, handlers or probers, and probe cards) look like beyond 2018? How can test be better integrated into the manufacturing process?
