Semiconductor and integrated circuit developments continue to proceed at an incredible pace. For example, today’s microprocessor chips have one thousand times the processing power of those a decade ago. These challenges have been accomplished because of the integrated circuit industry’s ability to track something known as Moore’s Law. Moore’s Law states that an integrated circuit’s processing power will double every two years. This has been accomplished by making devices smaller and smaller. The question looming in everyone’s mind is “How far into the future can this continue?” Advanced CMOS/FinFET Fabrication is a 1-day course that offers detailed instruction on the processing used in a modern integrated circuit, and the processing technologies required to make them. We place special emphasis on current issues related to manufacturing the next generation devices. This course is a must for every manager, engineer and technician working in the semiconductor industry, using semiconductor components or supplying tools to the industry.

By concentrating on the latest developments in CMOS and FinFET technology, participants will learn why FinFETs and FD-SOI are fast becoming the technologies of choice at feature sizes below 20nm. Our instructors work hard to explain semiconductor processing without delving heavily into the complex physics and materials science that normally accompany this discipline.
Participants learn basic but powerful aspects about FinFET technology. This skill-building series is divided into four segments:
By using a combination of instruction by lecture, classroom exercises, and question/answer sessions, participants will learn practical information on semiconductor processing and the operation of this industry. From the very first moments of the seminar until the last sentence of the training, the driving instructional factor is application. We use instructors who are internationally recognized experts in their fields that have years of experience (both current and relevant) in this field. The accompanying textbook offers hundreds of pages of additional reference material participants can use back at their daily activities.
Dr. Gambino received his B.S. degree in materials science from Cornell University, Ithaca, NY, in 1979, and his Ph.D. degree in materials science from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, MA, in 1984. He joined IBM, Hopewell Junction, NY, in 1984, where he worked on silicide processes for Bipolar and CMOS devices. In 1992, he joined the DRAM development alliance at IBM's Advanced Semiconductor Technology Center, Hopewell Junction, NY. While there, he developed contact and interconnect processes for 0.25-, 0.175-, and 0.15-mm DRAM products. In 1999, he joined IBM's manufacturing organization in Essex Junction, VT, where he has worked on copper interconnect processes for CMOS logic technology. He has published over 90 technical papers and holds over 100 patents.
