Connect with Interconnect Experts at IITC/MAM

May 11, 2015

Lam is gearing up for a number of exciting activities at an upcoming joint conference on interconnects, metallization, and 3D integration. The IEEE International Interconnect Technology Conference (IITC) and Materials for Advanced Metallization (MAM) Conference will be held together on May 18-21, 2015, in Grenoble, France. Through our Silver sponsorship we are pleased to support this premier conference, which brings together professionals from around the world in the fields of semiconductor processing, interconnect design, and equipment development.

First up, Lam’s Dr. Thorsten Lill will give a talk titled, “Plasma Etching: Atomic Scale Surface Fidelity and 2D Materials” at the pre-conference workshop on Monday, May 18. His presentation will review requirements, challenges, and solutions to achieve atomic-scale fidelity for etch patterning processes.

On Tuesday, May 19, we will host an evening reception at the MINATEC campus as part of the Supplier Seminar Series. The event will feature presentations by industry experts, followed by an interactive poster session with Lam technologists who will share their thoughts on the challenges facing the interconnect community.

You can also hear more about our activities in the areas of advanced metallization, interconnect, and 3D integration at the following presentations.
