‘Braking’ Through Barriers with Materials

The Critical Materials Council (CMC) Conference is a two day event providing actionable information on materials and supply-chains for current and future semiconductor manufacturing. Business drives the world, but technology enables semiconductor business, requiring us to understand the dynamics of how materials and technologies enable the scaling of devices in IC fabs. Conference speakers provide information on critical materials used in HVM fabs and look at manufacturing integration issues associated with new materials needed for future devices. Notable speakers from leading semiconductor fabricators, materials companies, and leading market research firms will provide insights on this ever-changing area of semiconductor process materials and markets.

Three Powerful Sessions and the Not-So-Usual Round Table

I.  Global Issues & Supply-Chain Challenges

II.  Immediate Challenges of Materials & Manufacturing

III.  Emerging Materials Challenges: leading edge today

Attendees include industry experts who work with supply-chain management, business-development, R&D, and product management, as well as academics and analysts. CMC member companies will be attending this meeting, as it is an important part of their membership.
