New Continuous Improvement Opportunities for Semiconductor Technologies Entering the Automotive Domain
The semiconductors that will enable fully automated transportation rely on the development of unique architectures, novel materials, and the ability of semiconductor manufacturers to increase the number and speed of continuous improvement opportunities.
Applying these innovations at the pace of new technologies requires all members of the semiconductor ecosystem to pause momentarily, assess their capabilities, and collaboratively plan for success. To build clarity into the ecosystem, we propose an interdisciplinary approach to best understand the entire process of creating a new semiconductor device.
In this paper, we illustrate anonymized case studies and fab benchmarks to bridge the gap between design and process engineering that enable best practices for automotive related semiconductor manufacturing.
