It takes a village to control contamination in the semiconductor process. Controlling contamination at leading-edge technology nodes is a critical challenge, requiring cooperative action by semiconductor manufacturers and their suppliers. Creating a clean total wafer environment requires a comprehensive approach, including end-user and supply-chain partner perspectives. The SEMI Texas Spring Forum will feature a range of experts giving their views on nano/micro-contamination. Topics include defect detection/characterization, and limiting contaminants in equipment, gases, chemicals, air, ultrapure water, masks, substrates, and other sources.

Join your industry peers as speakers from Samsung and key suppliers address contamination control along the supply chain. The program will conclude with an interactive roundtable discussion.
