The latest developments in patterning will be on stage at the upcoming SPIE Advanced Lithography, held as a digital forum February 22-26.

Patterning – the set of steps that transfers chip designs onto wafers – continues to be one of the most challenging areas of semiconductor manufacturing, driving innovations in both conventional and alternative technologies.

Lam’s Rich Wise, vice president in the Office of the CTO, will give a live keynote on Lam’s revolutionary technique to both apply photoresist and develop latent images in photoresist using dry technologies. In addition, Lam is pleased to be a digital forum sponsor.

You can hear about some of the latest advances from Lam and our collaborators, as listed below. We look forward to seeing you at the event.
