Event description

Description

Abstract:

The talk will start with an introduction on a short history of semiconductor, semiconductor manufacturing, and how it started in the late sixties and became a 335 billion dollar industry today.

The Moore’s law will be explained, and its unprecedented impact on our society will be elaborated. Then the presentation will give answers to: (1) for how long can Moore’s law continue before it ends? and (2) what will replace this law in the near future?

The presentation will continue with a projection on how this mature industry is continuing to grow and expand. The talk will be concluded with some reverse engineering examples from different aspects of semiconductors.

Bio:

Dr. Arabinda Das has more than twenty years of R&D experience which includes both semiconductor industry and research organizations. He joined TechInsights in January 2009 as a senior process analyst.

He did his Masters in Physics from Indian Institute of Technology, N.Delhi, India and then came to Paris to puruse his doctoral studies. Arabinda, in 1996 after completing his PhD in physics from the University of P-M Curie, Paris_VI, France, did several post-docs in various fields in different international organizations and then in 2001, joined IMEC research consortium in Belgium. At IMEC he was involved with backend Cu-Damascene and low-k materials. He did projects for IMEC’s industrial affiliation partners. Then in 2004, he joined Infineon-Qimonda in Germany as a development engineer for future technology nodes of memory. He has written and co-authored over fifty publications in peer reviewed journals and is listed as inventor on some patents. During his stay at TechInsights, he writes periodically blogs and technical articles for the general scientific audience. These articles discuss interesting findings of advanced devices and highlights the capabilities of his company.

At TechInsights, Arabinda is involved in technical analysis of all semiconductor products, which include Si-based devices, memory devices, logic, and packaging. Over the last years, he has analyzed structurally memory products, logic devices and LEDs from all major manufacturers and supported litigation to major clients. As part of his regular work, he uses these technical reports to support intellectual property, to assess patents and define evidence of use requirements.

He likes to be involved in innovative technology development, business strategy, start-ups and inter-cultural organizations.
