SVTC GM Discusses Nano Fabs on Tech Panel.
SANTA CLARA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--SVTC Technologies, which recently became an independent development foundry, will introduce a full suite of commercialization services, called FastXfer ™ services, and announce its name change, from Silicon Valley Technology Center to SVTC Technologies, at the NSTI Nanotech 2007 Conference (Booth #112), being held at the Santa Clara Convention Center from May 21 to May 24.
Designed to provide its customers with a rapid transfer to volume manufacturing, SVTC’s FastXfer services will complement SVTC Technologies’ other key services: access to a full-scale, 8-inch development foundry with a full complement of advanced CMOS equipment, and SVTC’s development tools and expertise. SVTC’s services deliver superior cycle times, cost-effective development and faster time to revenue -- meeting the needs of companies developing innovative technologies for the rapidly growing novel memory and transistor, MEMS/MOEMS, photovoltaic, bio-tech and hi-voltage markets.
SVTC’s new FastXfer Commercialization Services will include critical offerings such as: equipment stability and baseline process stability, process book creation and management, gap analysis and commonality review, test vehicles, process qualifications and yield improvement.
“This new service will ensure an easier transfer to the foundry and provide much-needed assistance when interfacing with a foundry,” said Dave Bergeron, SVTC Technologies’ CEO. “These offerings can significantly shorten the time to volume manufacturing and accelerate revenues for our customers.”
GM to Discuss Nanoscale Fabrication and Characterization
During the conference technical sessions on Tuesday, May 22, Bert Bruggeman, SVTC’s vice president of operations and general manager, will participate on a panel entitled, “Nanoscale Fabrication and Characterization,” at 3:50 p.m. in Grand Ballroom E. ASML’s Norbert Kappel is the session chair, and the other panelists are speakers from Nanotero, Stanford Nanofabrication Facility, SiTime, and ASML.
“NSTI Nanotech focuses on the issues involved in using nanotechnology and embedded enabling technologies and many companies are coming to SVTC for our expertise in this area,” said Bruggeman. “Our customers are constantly looking for ways to use process integration and nanotechnology to solve problems in new ways, and we are helping them do that.”
NSTI Nanotech Conference
Presented by the Nano Science and Technology Institute (NSTI), Nanotech 2007 is the largest international nanotechnology conference and trade show in the world. Unlike single-discipline events, Nanotech brings together specialists from a wide range of fields of science, technology and business. Nanotechnology is already revolutionizing medicine, science, pharmaceuticals, robotics, electronics, manufacturing and computer technology. More than 400 featured exhibitors and a crowd of more than 4000 attendees is expected at Nanotech 2007, which will include business executives, venture capitalists, politicians, scientists and researchers from 53 countries.
