SEMATECH is the world's catalyst for accelerating the commercialization of
technology innovations into manufacturing solutions.
By setting global direction, creating opportunities for flexible collaboration,
and conducting strategic R&D, SEMATECH delivers significant return on investment
to our semiconductor and emerging technology partners.
At SEMATECH, we work with our members and partners to reduce the time from
innovation to manufacturing. Our role is to address critical challenges in advanced
technology and manufacturing effectiveness, and to find ways to speed development,
reduce costs, share risks, and increase productivity.
Semiconductor and emerging technology research is both high cost and high
risk. Our membership represents about half of the world's semiconductor production,
and in addition we have built a global network of alliances with equipment and
material suppliers, universities, research institutes, consortia, start-up companies,
and government partners. Because we all face many of the same constraints and
long-term concerns, we work together to leverage resources and keep the industry
vital and growing ever stronger.
