Stock quotes in this article: ENTG

BILLERICA, Mass., July 2, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Entegris, Inc. (Nasdaq:ENTG) and SEMI are collaborating to organize a breakfast forum and panel discussion on achieving "Defect Reduction in the Sub-20 nm Era" for semiconductor manufacturing at the upcoming SEMICON West 2013 tradeshow. The forum will be held on Thursday, July 11, 2013 from 7:30 am to 10 am at the San Francisco Marriott Marquis in San Francisco, California.

As the semiconductor industry ramps the manufacturing of advanced semiconductor devices at the sub-20 nm node, it is facing a number of challenges including skyrocketing capital requirements, the adoption of difficult process technologies such as double patterning and Finfet structure, and an ever-increasing number of process steps. Yield is not only a challenge, but a key lever to the overall semiconductor business model. The Entegris-sponsored forum will explore the key yield challenges and defect reduction approaches at sub-20 nm nodes from three points of view - equipment, process and materials.

The event will feature a keynote presentation from Tim Hendry, Vice President, Technology and Manufacturing Group, Director Fab Materials at Intel Corporation. Following the keynote, there will be presentations on the topic of yield enhancement by leading equipment and materials companies including KLA-Tencor, Lam Research, ATMI, and Entegris. The event will conclude with an interactive panel discussion with the presenters.
