R&D for Advanced Technology Nodes

The trend in integrated circuits (ICs) is to consistently migrate to smaller feature sizes with enhanced performance, density and cost per function. New manufacturing processes therefore emerge to push forward the next generation technology. To meet these industry realities, the availability of new and advanced materials are critical. At BASF, our R&D experts have a profound understanding of our customer’s needs and the process requirements, most of them having years of experience in the IC industry.
