This comprehensive five-hour workshop will feature 170+ slides developed and presented by Dr. Doug Sparks, President of M2N Technologies. The workshop will offer an overview of the semiconductor and MEMS supply chains, and will cover the following topics:
1) Review the global semiconductor and MEMS supply chains and recent… Read More
Many types of designs, including analog designs, MEMs, and image sensors, require electrically matched configurations. This symmetry has a huge impact on the robustness of the design across process variations, and its performance. Having an electrically matched layout basically means having a symmetric layout. To check … Read More
In 1991, I arrived in Glasgow to become a lecturer in Glasgow University, attracted by the Silicon Glen – the heart of semiconductor manufacturing in Europe. Here are few facts:
- The larges semiconductor plant in Europe at that time was the NEC DRAM manufacturing site in Livingstone. When I visited the plant, I was mesmerized

In MEMS and semiconductor design, 20% of the upstream design decisions affect 80% of the downstream foundry processing, packaging, assembly, and system-level performance and yield. Device designers are seldom able to consider the implications of their design decisions on system-level robustness because the tools… Read More
A little over a month ago, I wrote about the substantial support that Silicon Catalyst and Arm were providing for chip startups. There have been many incubators for technology companies over the years. These organizations typically provide office space, some basic infrastructure, advisory help and sometimes access to seed … Read More

Postponement SEMI MEMS & Imaging Sensors Summit in Grenoble
After consultation with our board, SEMI has made the decision to postpone the SEMI Europe MEMS & IMAGING SENSORS SUMMIT originally scheduled for June 22-24 at the World Trade Center WTC, Grenoble, France, out of an abundance of caution as the Novel Coronavirus… Read More
I enjoy learning and writing about new technologies closely connected to our personal and working lives (the kind you could explain to your Mom or a neighbor). So naturally I’m interested in AI, communication and security as applied to the home automation, transportation, virtual, augmented and mixed reality, industry and so… Read More
