ITRI And DuPont Inaugurate Semiconductor Materials Lab

News

Taiwanese lab will combine ITRI’s semiconductor-related technical strength and DuPont’s expertise in materials

Industrial Technology Research Institute (ITRI) and DuPont Electronics & Imaging have celebrated the opening of a new semiconductor materials laboratory in Hsinchu, Taiwan.

DuPont established the laboratory to stay close to the semiconductor industry in Taiwan. DuPont will conduct, in collaboration with ITRI, semiconductor material research, development and enhancement, and accelerate pilot testing and commercial viability to support DuPont's customers as they pursue the next generation of semiconductors in Taiwan.

The evolution of 5G and Artificial Intelligence (AI) has spurred development of key technologies for the next generation of semiconductors, including materials to support heterogeneous integration, advanced manufacturing processes, and high-end packaging. Taiwan plays a leading role in the semiconductor industry and has an integrated semiconductor supply chain.

Chih-I Wu, VP and general director of ITRI's Electronic and Optoelectronic System Research Laboratories, stressed that ITRI has long invested in semiconductor research and development and has a solid foundation in the fields of electronics and optoelectronics, advanced packaging processes, chemistry and materials. With the support from AI on Chip Program of Department of Industrial Technology (DoIT), Ministry of Economic Affairs (MOEA), ITRI will expand investment in advanced equipment and technology, heterogeneous integrated packaging experiment platforms and diversified design, manufacturing processes and prototype production services.

“Bringing together ITRI's semiconductor-related technical strength and DuPont's expertise in materials, this laboratory in ITRI's vicinity will enable closer exchanges between the two organisations to bring more innovative solutions and meet the immediate needs of Taiwan's semiconductor and IC substrate industries,” he said.

“DuPont has been conducting business in Taiwan for more than 50 years and has grown alongside Taiwan's industrial development, especially in the electronics industry. Our investment in semiconductor technology and manufacturing centres in Taiwan serves as our hub in Asia Pacific to promote advanced semiconductor technologies globally,” said Dennis Chen, DuPont Taiwan president. “Over the years, we have made efforts in strengthening technological breakthroughs, terminal applications and supporting the strategic technology roadmap in Taiwan. The inauguration of this laboratory marks another important milestone as we continue to enhance innovation and R&D capabilities in Taiwan.”

Added Rob Kavanagh, global business director, DuPont Advanced Packaging Technologies: "DuPont is committed to the development of advanced materials in support of the increasingly complex packaging technologies. We have seen positive outcomes from our past collaboration with ITRI and look forward to further leveraging each other's competencies and experience for our customers and Taiwan's semiconductor industry.”



AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!

AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and will feature online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.

2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.

We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.

Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.

Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
