Abstract
Far from being a mechanism for manufacturing “old” products, the use of so called “secondary” equipment has become a mainstream mechanism for cost effective production of an important range of products. It is well known that 200mm production capacity is expanding rapidly, and the re-use and re-purposing of older equipment is fuelling a lot of that growth. However, there are issues to be faced: availability of suitable tools, part obsolescence and shortage of engineer skills to name but a few. OEM’s are trying to address this through the production of “new” 200mm equipment but there is a difficult balance to be reached in terms of cost of production of certain types of devices. The presentation will discuss these issues as an introduction to the subjects that will be covered in the rest of the SEA session.

Abstract
More than Moore applications (including sensors, power devices, Led, CMOS image sensors, microfluidics and printed electronics) are expected to reach more than $100B in 2022, with a CAGR above 12%, reaching more than ¼ of the total semiconductor market at that time… So More than Moore is becoming a key industry, with its own process, equipment, roadmaps… A significant part of this industry is manufacturing on 8’’ (even for some of the players on 6’’ wafers), using both new equipment but also a lot of refurbished equipment. It is revitalizing both the 8’’ equipment market (compared to the leading edge 300mm equipment market) but also the second hand equipment (a large majority of this new manufacturing line are using such equipment). The presentation will deep dive into the trends in terms of new manufacturing lines, technical roadmaps and what is expected in terms of changes for the next 5 years, based on Yole Développement analysis and reports.

Abstract
The Internet of Things (IoT) is driving a wide range of devices. MEMS sensors and transducers are critical components in the IoT infrastructure. As this infrastructure proliferates, it will continue to drive demand for increasingly advanced yet cost-effective sensor and transducer technologies. To satisfy this demand, the requirement for semiconductor processing equipment that enhances the customers’ fab productivity and capital efficiency is also growing. Lam Research has been working to extend our product lifecycle through technology enhancements and productivity upgrades to our etch, deposition, and clean technologies to ensure we meet the needs of the MEMS and sensor manufacturing community. While the critical dimensions of MEMS devices are significantly larger than leading edge ICs, the profile, tilt, film quality, materials, and surface roughness requirements are comparable. Applying the technical leadership from fabricating the most advanced devices to MEMS processing equipment is enabling a new level of control for MEMS fabrication. These developments not only focus on our deep silicon etch technology, which is already an established process used in the fabrication of MEMS devices, but also on the processing of new materials that are key to the next generation of MEMS and NEMS. In parallel, through a process of continuing innovation, we are consistently introducing our own suite of smart manufacturing tools that allow these process solutions to be deployed with improved operational efficiency and productivity. In this presentation, we will review the enhanced technical capability of etch, deposition, and clean processing equipment, as well as the smart manufacturing tools that can increase the capability and productivity of IoT device fabrication equipment.

Abstract
The lifetime of the PAS 5500 platform will be extended with another 8 years to the 2030 to serve the needs of our customers in the IOT industry to maintain & extend their 200 mm factories in the most cost-effective way. An extensive program has been set-up to re-design parts, modules & racks of the PAS systems to be able to continue refurbishment and service activities until 2030. This includes as well a major new initiative to extend & adapt the service portfolio to the current & future needs of our customers and to add new productivity and overlay options to our product roadmap, including mid-life upgrades.

Abstract
The secondary equipment market has never been more buoyant. This year sees yet again growth in equipment needs for all wafer sizes. More capacity coming on line and more innovation to satisfy the growing markets in IOT, smart phones and automotive. The vast majority of devices made for these applications are not made on 300mm wafers. 200mm manufacturing continues to be the dominant force for trailing edge Silicon, with 150mm and below for other substrates includes SiC. STMicroelectronics, with our efficient lean FE manufacturing sites in Europe and Singapore, combined with our wealth of intellectual property and R&D talent is uniquely positioned to successfully serve these very demanding customers. One of the challenges we face is how to effectively source and maintain high quality, often previously used, 200mm equipment. In this presentation we will share ST’s experiences in sourcing equipment and services, how we see the future shaping up and how we think the different stake holders could help us improve further.
