Design World: Nano Dimension introduced low-volume, continuous additive manufacturing system for electronics production

Nano Dimension introduced low-volume, continuous additive manufacturing system for electronics production

Additively manufacturing functional circuits round-the-clock with little or no operator intervention is possible with the new DragonFly LDM precision additive manufacturing system from Nano Dimension. This 3D printer will build electronic components such as multilayer Printed Circuit Boards (PCBs), antennas, sensors and so on, round-the-clock, enabling Nano Dimension to shift from developing prototyping printers to systems that handle one-off prototypes as well as low-volume manufacturing of printed electronics.

AnandTech: Everspin Begins Production of 1 Gb STT-MRAM

Everspin Begins Production of 1 Gb STT-MRAM

Everspin recently announced they have begun pilot production of their 1Gb STT-MRAM (Spin-transfer Torque Magnetoresistive RAM) nonvolatile memory, after shipping the first pre-production samples in December. The new MRAM parts are fabbed on a GlobalFoundries 28nm process and are a significant advance in density and capacity compared to their current 40nm 256Mb parts. Production will be ramping up through the second half of this year.

EBN: Cross-Organizational Data Sharing in the Auto Supply Chain Reduces Defects

Cross-Organizational Data Sharing in the Auto Supply Chain Reduces Defects

For years, semiconductor manufacturers have leveraged manufacturing data throughout their globally-dispersed supply chains to improve quality and reduce return material authorizations (RMAs). Automotive OEMs and Tier 1 suppliers are now working to meet the similar challenge of reducing defective parts per million (DPPM) and beyond in vehicle production. The ability to share and connect data backwards and forwards throughout the supply chain is now seen as a key capability to address this challenge. How can sharing data throughout the automotive supply chain reduce DPPM?

EDN: Move ICs from defects per million to defects per billion

Move ICs from defects per million to defects per billion

Defective Parts Per Million (DPPM) is one of the key metrics used to measure quality in many semiconductor segments. With electronics becoming more and more a part of everyday life (wearable electronics and semi-autonomous vehicles), there's increasing pressure to improve quality across all semiconductor market segments. For mission-critical segments such as automotive and medical, market forces are driving improvements in quality into the Defective Parts Per Billion (DPPB) range.
