Berlin, Germany – October 11, 2022 Atotech, a brand within the Materials Solutions Division of MKS Instruments, developing leading process and manufacturing technologies for next-generation power semiconductors and advanced packaging, joins the International Semiconductor Executive Summit (ISES Taiwan) in Hsinchu, Taiwan from October 11-12.

On Wednesday, October 12 from 9:30 a.m. – 9:45 a.m. CST, Dr. Christian Ohde, Global Director Semiconductor and Functional Electronics for MKS’ Atotech brand, will give the keynote and present on how technology pushes limits. His topic this year is “Plating solutions for next-generation power semiconductors and advanced packaging of highest reliability”.

During his talk, Dr. Ohde will elaborate on how the increasing functionality resulting from advanced node and packaging technologies as well as reliability requirements of power semiconductors go hand in hand with new requirements for the metallization processes. Furthermore, Dr. Ohde will explain the importance of fundamental R&D, which is the foundation to be equipped to provide next-generation chemistry and equipment solutions and meet the upcoming requirements of the semiconductor industry. He will discuss specific interconnect challenges, including higher stress sensitivity of smaller structures, the integration of heterogeneous structures, and new interconnect technologies to comply with higher interconnect density. He will also explain the path chosen for Atotech solutions when it comes to reliable copper, tailorable pillars, and low-temperature copper-to-copper direct bonding for smallest bonding solutions.
