SEMI Pacific Northwest Chapter invites you to join the industry experts for the discussion of New Memory, Current and Future Challenges, & Opportunities and Implications on the Supply Chain.
As memory devices are hitting the scaling limits, paradigm shifts in Memory Technology and Architecture ranging from planar NAND to 3D NAND and DRAM to STT-RAM or MRAM or architectural changes such as the Hybrid Memory Cube are occurring. The alternatives have the potential to change the whole dynamics of the volatile and non-volatile memory markets, processes, equipment and material requirements.
SEMI Pacific Northwest Breakfast Forum is a great opportunity to network with your colleagues and meet other local industry executives.

From Afar: The Discovery, Interpretation, and Significance of Ardipithecus ramidus

It took much of the last century to demonstrate that our genus, Homo, descended from Australopithecus. By the 1960s, biomolecular work had demonstrated that our closest living relatives are the African apes—gorillas and chimpanzees. However, the precursor of Australopithecus remained unknown until a series of discoveries that began in the 1990s and continue to this day. These African fossils belong to the genus Ardipithecus, a facultatively bipedal, small-brained, woodland dweller now known from fossils recovered in Tchad, Ethiopia, and Kenya. How were these fossils found?
Tim White directs the Human Evolution Research Center at UC Berkeley where he also is a Professor of Integrative Biology and Curator of Biological Anthropology at the Phoebe A. Hearst Museum of Anthropology. He co-directs the Middle Awash research project in the Afar rift of Ethiopia. White grew up in the San Bernardino Mountains of Southern California and majored in biology and anthropology at the University of California, Riverside. He received his Ph.D. from the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor. He is a AAAS fellow, member of the U.S. National Academy of Sciences, and Honorary Fellow of the Royal Society of South Africa.

Oxide thin films are finding applications in a wide range of energy technologies, from ion conductors through photovoltaics and thermoelectrics to dielectrics and capacitors. Each of these energy technologies requires a thorough understanding of the materials chemistry of the oxide film and its interactions with the environment, substrate etc. Whilst in each technology area there may be materials differences, much of the materials chemistry optimisation may be common. For example, common families of oxides are employed, ABO3 perovskites in particular, and in this there are areas where discussion between user communities can prove mutually beneficial. It is the purpose of this meeting to foster an exchange of ideas between the relevant energy themes with the overall aim of provoking extensive discussion of the advances that materials chemistry can make in thin film energy applications.
