Dr. Chen's talk, titled Growing the Semiconductor Industry as Moore's Law Slows Down, reviews the semiconductor industry in the past four decades and how its growth accelerated with Moore's Law. The recent slowing down of Moore's Law has opened up opportunities and challenges for new applications. Dr. Chen will argue that improving yield to be better than ever would be the most profound way to advance our technology and grow the industry. Nanoscale metrology with modern tools is critical to discover, learn, and eliminate the defects which would otherwise kill semiconductor products. Detecting the undetectable and deep learning will enable the future growth of the amazing semiconductor industry.

Dr. Park's focus will be on introducing those unfamiliar with Park Systems as the leading innovator in emerging nanoscale microscopy and metrology technology. The talk will also introduce some key aspects of our atomic force microscopy technology including our new AFM operating software Park SmartScan and the automatization of AFM using self-optimizing scan control.


About Dr. Sang-il Park

Dr. Sang-il Park, Founder and CEO of Park Systems, was a graduate student of Applied Physics at Stanford University, working in the very group that invented the AFM. He then founded PSIA, later Park Systems in 2007, and developed the world's first commercial AFM in 1989. After 25 years of continuous growth and product innovation, Park has the longest history of AFM business in the industry. The company now has more than 1,000 of its AFM systems in use in over 30 countries around the world.

About Dr. John Y. Chen

Dr. John Chen worked at TSMC for 10 years on technology and manufacturing. He formed TSMC R&D and was the first Head and V.P. of R&D. Subsequently, he built and ran WaferTech Fab for four years before he became the V.P. of Business Development. Since 2004, he has been at NVIDIA as the Corporate V.P. of Technology & Foundry Management.

In his earlier days, Dr. Chen worked at Hughes Research Lab and Xerox Palo Alto Research Center. He was elected to an IEEE Fellow for "leadership and contributions to advances CMOS device and technology." He has written a book on "CMOS Devices and Technology for VLSI", published by Prentice Hall. He has published 100 technical papers and given keynote speeches worldwide. He now serves on few technical advisory boards and is on the board of Cascade Microtech Inc, (CSCD).

He received four degrees: a Ph.D. in EE and a Master in Executive Engineering Management, both from UCLA, a M.S. from University of Maine and a B.S. from National Taiwan University, both in E.E.
