The rapid pace of introduction of novel materials in advanced semiconductor manufacturing requires a collaborative, yet pragmatic, common sense driven approach. In recent years, adoption timelines have shrunk considerably, leading to possibility of less-than-mature materials making their way to fabs. The talk will address scale-up, regulatory and safety compliance as well as analytical challenges in material introduction process, and ways to address them.
