Intermolecular today announced that GLOBALFOUNDRIES and IBM will leverage Intermolecular's High Productivity Combinatorial (HPC)
technology, as the companies work to speed development of
manufacturing technologies down to the 10nm node.
Intermolecular's combinatorial technology allows many more tests to
be done using a single wafer. This enables experimental data to be
generated and analyzed with greater speed than a traditional
development line, accelerating innovation in materials, processes,
and device architectures.
"IBM and GLOBALFOUNDRIES are committed to pushing forward the
leading-edge of IC logic manufacturing with new materials and device
structures," said Gary Patton, VP Semiconductor Research for IBM.
"Intermolecular's HPC technology will help to more rapidly explore
materials and processing options for advanced logic manufacturing."
"We are pleased that IBM and GLOBALFOUNDRIES will be able to
leverage our HPC platform to address GLOBALFOUNDRIES' high-volume
manufacturing R&D challenges," said David Lazovsky, Intermolecular
president and CEO.
"Our business model is built on collaboration, both in customer
engagements and technology development," commented David Bennett,
vice president of alliances for GLOBALFOUNDRIES. "Collaborating with
Intermolecular has strengthened our R&D pipeline and improved R&D
