300mm fab equipment spending will slowly recover in 2020 after the 2019 downturn and take off in 2021 to log a new record high topping US$60 billion, only to lag again in 2022 and rebound to an all-time peak in 2023, according to the SEMI Industry Research and Statistics group in its first edition of the 300mm Fab Outlook report.
Mobileye President and CEO Prof. Amnon Shashua and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu laid the cornerstone for Mobileye’s new global development center in Jerusalem on Tuesday, Aug. 27, 2019.
A wireless sensor small enough to be implanted in the blood vessels of the human brain could help clinicians evaluate the healing of aneurysms — bulges that can cause death or serious injury if they burst. The stretchable sensor, which operates without batteries, would be wrapped around stents or diverters implanted to control blood flow in vessels affected by the aneurysms.
Picosun Group, a supplier of AGILE ALD (Atomic Layer Deposition) thin film coating solutions, reports excellent results obtained with its next generation R&D PEALD (plasma-enhanced ALD) technology.
SUTD, SUSTech and ZJU researchers’ proposed process flow guides 3D printing of miniature soft pneumatic actuators. Integrating the prints into a robotic system offers potential applications in jet-engine maintenance and minimally invasive surgery.
Joint work to be carried out at EVG’s NILPhotonics Competence Center, an open innovation incubator for nanoimprint lithography (NIL) and the only accessible 300mm NIL development line worldwide.
Research, economic development and other sponsored activities at Georgia Tech passed a significant milestone during the fiscal year that concluded on June 30, recording more than a billion dollars in new grants, contracts and other awards.
Researchers at Nara Institute of Science and Technology (NAIST), Japan, in partnership with research teams in the University Paul Sabatier (France) and Prof. Saw-Wai Hla in Ohio University (USA), report in Nature Communications the latest nanomachine, a propeller that can rotate at will in both clockwise and counterclockwise directions and transfer this motion to another molecule like gears.
Study may lead to better, cheaper microphones, gyroscopes, pressure sensors.
The upcoming 65th annual IEEE International Electron Devices Meeting (IEDM), to be held December 7-11, 2019 at the Hilton San Francisco Union Square hotel, will once again feature the latest and most important research taking place in semiconductors and other electron devices, but with a sharper focus this year on devices intended to support diverse new applications.
