The new engineering facility in Bengaluru is a part of the expansion of Lam’s R&D operations and testing of wafer fabrication hardware and software.
Story so far: The California-based wafer fabrication equipment supplier stated that the India engineering lab would be an integral part of the company’s global network of labs. The facility will be a critical part of creating new technologies required for rising semiconductor manufacturing complexity.
- The new lab will employ a range of disciplines from plasma and materials science to artificial intelligence and software controls.
- The equipment at the new centre will facilitate engineers to design, test and validate new deposition technologies on-site instead of sending them to other locations.
So far so good: Lam opened its first facility in India two decades ago, and ever since, the ingenuity and dedication of its engineering have helped propel the advancement of semiconductor technology. Apart from the new centre, Lam operates two other facilities in Bengaluru dedicated solely to hardware and software engineering.
