Brewer Science and Arkema Announce a Production Milestone in Bringing Directed Self-Assembly Material to the Semiconductor Market
Building on the partnership announced in October 2015, Brewer Science and Arkema have demonstrated pilot-scale production of DSA materials using Arkema's block copolymer (BCP) technology and Brewer Science's manufacturing expertise. This is a step toward bringing DSA from a research level up to mainstream semiconductor production. These initial pilot-scale DSA materials are based on polystyrene-polymethylmethacrylate (PS-PMMA) and are being used to support customer DSA process evaluations ...
- Press release for the Brewer/Arkema partnership - October 2015
Brewer Science, Inc., and Arkema are pleased to announce a partnership to produce high quality DSA (Directed Self Assembly) materials for use in semiconductor manufacturing. DSA will be one of the key technologies that enable high-volume, cost-effective nanoscale manufacturing.
This partnership leverages Brewer Science’s strength of more than 30-years’ experience in advanced semiconductor materials and process solutions with Arkema’s experience of more than 20 years in block copolymer (BCP) technology and manufacturing. This combination of manufacturing and support expertise will accelerate the introduction of DSA material technology for next generation lithography applications ...
- Press release for the PLACYD kick-off meeting - February 2014
Arkema hosted the kick-off meeting of the PLACYD project on February 18th 2014 in Paris, aiming to set up a full European Ecosystem dedicated to DSA technology with the support of key players of the semiconductor industry.
Part of the Seventh Framework European Programme (FP7) and funded by ENIAC JU (European Technology Platform for Nanoelectronics), this project will be led by Arkema for 3 years. Its aim is to develop and bring DSA materials to industrial maturity, as well as processes and integration schemes ...
