Four industry experts on semiconductor process technology were interviewed by Mark LaPedus on current trends in the field, including Raj Jammy of Intermolecular. "If you switch to the memory side, there are 3D changes taking place. We are moving away from storing electrons. We are looking into a physical manifestation of resistance change. We are looking into resistance RAM. Again, that’s driven by materials. The question is how are we going to deal with these new materials and do we have an understanding of the physics? And how do we package them?" Subramani Kengeri of GlobalFoundries, Carlos Mazure of Soitec and Girish Dixit of Lam Research also weighed in on industry trends.
