Intel is spending $20 billion to build two new chip plants in Arizona

Intel announced on Tuesday that it will spend $20 billion to build two major factories in Arizona. The news comes amid a worldwide chip shortage that is snarling industries from automobiles to electronics and worries the U.S. is falling behind in semiconductor manufacturing. The announcement signals that Intel will continue to focus on manufacturing.

Next chance to get deep insights to Intel quality demands and advanced metrology & analytic for the material supply chain will be at the CMC2021 Conference, broadcasted from San Diego, USA, APril 14-15:

KEYNOTE : Jeanne Yuen-Hum, Vice President of Manufacturing & Operations, and Director of Global Supply-Chain Quality & Reliability, Intel Corporation "The Cost of Quality"

Alex Tregub, PhD Staff Engineer Intel Corporation "From Egyptian Royal Cubit to SEMI Guides for CMP consumables – Industry Standards"

Refreshing Material Advances for Logic, Memory, and Packaging5th CMC Conference "After-Hours" Available up to December 11

How to keep semiconductor fabs supplied with critical materials despite a pandemic and trade wars was discussed by >250 industry experts gathered in virtual space October 21-22 during the 5th annual Critical Materials Council (CMC) Conference. CMC Fab Members and Associate Supplier Members were joined by leading industry analysts, educators, and investors in discussing business and technology trends in the value-chain for advanced packaging, logic, and memory. The "after-hours" virtual conversations will continue through December 11th using the conference app and website, and new people can join in through November 16th.

"There were a lot good topics especially on materials challenges for leading edge technology and heterogeneous integration, global issues on material supplies, and emerging materials development," commented Dr. Lihong Cao, Director of Engineering and Technical Marketing at ASE, and Session 4 presenter.

Dr. Lauren Link of Intel discussed the need to find ways to integrate more front-end fabrication materials into packaging. The challenge is doing so in a cost-effective manner, without over-specifying materials and process requirements.
