About the Edition

SEMATECH proponents argue that the SEMATECH consortium model represents future government-industry consortia. This thesis examines the Semiconductor Manufacturing Technology Initiative (SEMATECH). Analysis of SEMATECH includes: (1) its dissection as a consortium and as a government- industry venture; (2) the impact of SEMATECH on both semiconductor research and development (R&D) and the American chipmaking industry; and (3) the political implications of SEMATECH. SEMATECH is funded through the Advanced Research Programs Agency (ARPA). Federal support of the semiconductor industry via the ARPA seems incompatible with Department of Defense interests. There are instances when federal support of R&D is justified. It seems doubtful that the semiconductor industry is one of those instances, but if it were, SEMATECH would not be the best way to channel government support. Ibis thesis shows that SEMATECH is not responsible for the turnaround of the semiconductor industry; that SEMATECH is not an appropriate model for government-industry partnerships; and that federal funding of SEMATECH should cease.

This book studies electrical overstress, ESD, and latchup from a failure analysis and case-study approach. It provides a clear insight into the physics of failure from a generalist perspective, followed by investigation of failure.

Sematech’s purpose is to improve U.S. semiconductor firms’ manufacturing technology. As discussed, the rationale for the U.S. government’s subsidy to the consortium rests on two premises: first, that the social return to semiconductor research exceeds the private return (meaning the private sector does too little on its own); and second, that government.

In conclusion, this book is a very useful reference for any manufacturing technologist in the semiconductor industry. It provides a good introduction to the basics of R2R control and illustrates its application to semiconductor manufacturing with specific examples and case studies based on the authors personal experiences. Numerous case studies are integrated into the text and designed to work with the statistical software, DATAPLOT, available for free download in the “Tools & Aids” section. A fill-in-the-blank worksheet with sample data allows the user to quickly and easily duplicate the calculations with his or her own data.

Content was built around the e-book NIST/SEMATECH e-Handbook of Statistical Methods. At the begining of each exercise or case study, I’ve included a link back to the specific page of the e-Handbook. The e-Handbook can be downloaded in full from the NIST site.

The NIST/SEMATECH e-Handbook of Statistical Methods is a A case study book book written to help scientists and engineers incorporate statistical methods into their work as efficiently as possible.

Ideally, it will serve as a reference which will help scientists and engineers design their own experiments and carry out the appropriate analyses when a statistician is not available to help.

This case studies book has used the SEMATECH Qualification Plan as a framework for SEMATECH statistical methods for process and equipment improvement. Each part has focused on a particular statistical method that supports a critical element of that Qualification Plan. The book would not be complete without a comprehensive case study that.

SEMATECH was established in for defense and economic reasons to help the US regain a competitive posture in semiconductor manufacturing. For 10 years SEMATECH was jointly funded by the federal government and semiconductor manufacturing companies representing 85 percent of the US semiconductor industry.

"A web based statistics handbook oriented towards engineering and scientific applications. The handbook is being developed as a joint partnership between the Statistical Engineering Division of NIST and the Statistical Methods Group of SEMATECH.

Case studies can be run from the handbook using the Dataplot software." This book is the product of collaboration between the NIST and SEMATECH, and is better written than I had expected. The beginning provides a great introduction to classical statistical methods and exploratory data analysis (statistical methods that are largely graphical and that help determine characteristics of the data in question, which can guide further analysis).3/5(1).
