Migrating to Molybdenum: Comprehensive IC Solutions to Streamline the Transition

White paper

The need for smaller dimensions and increasing device performance requirements are driving the move to new metals for advanced logic and memory. The industry is evaluating lower-resistance and barrierless material alternatives. Molybdenum (Mo), ruthenium (Ru), or cobalt (Co) will soon become standard when producing state-of-the-art devices. 

The transition to Mo or another new metal will not be easy, and IDMs need to accelerate speed-to-yield to run a high-purity process as quickly as possible. 

Choosing an experienced supplier that offers high-purity materials for multiple process steps helps avoid unnecessary challenges, obstacles, and risks. This option smooths the path to high-volume production with higher yields and quality.
