DuPont Semiconductor Fabrication & Packaging Materials Hosts Technical Panel Discussion at SEMICON West 2007


Leading Experts will Address Collaboration Required to Meet Future Development Challenges

DuPont Semiconductor Fabrication and Packaging Materials has announced it will host a technical panel discussion, “Technology Partnerships & Tools for the Future”, featuring experts from leading companies including Intel, Spansion, Applied Materials, ASML, Brewer Science, SEMATECH and the University of Arizona’s Center for Environmentally Benign Semiconductor Manufacturing. The panel will discuss how key groups across the semiconductor industry value chain are strategizing with their business partners to develop advanced technologies for future use. The discussion will take place on July 18 from 3 p.m. – 5 p.m., at SEMICON West 2007 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, Calif.

Five primary stakeholder groups involved in the development of semiconductor materials and processes – integrated circuit (IC) producers, process tool companies, chemical and material suppliers, consortia, and academic institutions – will address key questions and issues related to the IC value chain, including:

* Are the working relationships and coordination among key stakeholders sufficient to meet the future needs of the industry?
* What is working well, and what can be improved?
* How can the cooperation needed to meet the increasingly demanding requirements of advanced ICs best be achieved?

Each panelist will make a short presentation, followed by a question and answer session. Ed Korczynski, senior technical editor, Solid State Technology, will moderate the conversation.

“DuPont is pleased to host this gathering of influential leaders, who can offer insights to help the industry collectively understand how increased collaboration will generate the new products and partnerships that will take semiconductor technology more quickly to the next level,” said Timothy P. McCann, vice president and general manager - DuPont Electronic Technologies. “At DuPont, we recognize the important role that advanced materials play in making these developments possible, and we are committed to supporting the industry and sharing knowledge more broadly through discussions like this one, in pursuit of new semiconductor innovations.”
