AUSTIN, Texas — To improve manufacturing productivity, cost and cycle time for a targeted segment of manufacturers in the semiconductor industry, International SEMATECH Manufacturing Initiative (ISMI), announced today that it has launched a new Mature Fabs program.
“Our diverse knowledge will provide solutions that will allow IC makers with mature fabs to ensure profitability and competitiveness.”
ISMI’s Mature Fabs program will be dedicated to addressing the challenges faced by semiconductor companies with mature fabs, including cost and productivity pressures, equipment lifecycle management, safety procedures, and logistics. As a part of the new program, members will share key strategies to address common equipment and factory processing issues.
“The addition of the Mature Fabs program is powerful proof of ISMI’s commitment to helping semiconductor manufacturers improve factory productivity and cost performance of equipment and factory operations,” said Scott Kramer, vice president of manufacturing technology at SEMATECH. “Our diverse knowledge will provide solutions that will allow IC makers with mature fabs to ensure profitability and competitiveness.”
