About the event

With the European Chips Act the EU aims to strengthen its semiconductor ecosystem, increasing its resilience, ensuring supply and reducing external dependencies. Achieving this will require a thriving semiconductor sector in Europe, where the full value chain has the necessary tools, skills, and technological capabilities to meet its essential requirements.

These include the research, development, manufacturing, and packaging of advanced semiconductor devices, and the design and manufacturing of pioneering microprocessing equipment, as well as fit-for-purpose metrology for advanced nano- and microscale manufacturing.

Competitiveness and productivity in the semiconductor industry depend on the control of production processes by reliable metrology. Development of new devices, manufacturing processes, or manufacturing equipment requires new metrology, with often unprecedented repeatability, accuracy, and quality of measurement.

In this open consultation event EURAMET, the European Association of National Metrology Institutes, invites stakeholders to share their vision on future metrology needs for semiconductor technology.


These stakeholder needs will help to guide the development of future calls for joint research projects on ’Metrology for Industry’ within the European Partnership on Metrology, as well as helping to explore synergies with calls in other funding programmes, such as KDT-JU, with respect to the requirements of the European Chips Act.

Speakers include representatives from the Key Digital Technologies Joint Undertaking, ASML, IMEC, ZEISS and STMicroelectronics.

The event aims to:

  • Bring together stakeholders from industry & science and other interested parties and
  • Assess the major needs of the European semiconductor value chain for new and improved measurement capabilities that might be addressed by the EURAMET community and within the European Partnership on Metrology.

 

Discussion topics will include:

  • The role of EURAMET and KDT in the support of future measurement needs in the semiconductor manufacturing industry
  • The role of traceable metrology in semiconductor manufacturing
  • Characterisation of advanced materials used in semiconductor technologies
  • Stakeholder needs related to metrology for semiconductor research and development
  • Stakeholder needs related to metrology in/for manufacturing equipment
  • Metrology concepts for the qualification of advanced semiconductor devices (e.g., integrated sensors)

 

The event’s aim is to initiate mutual consultation, coordination, and cooperation between the EURAMET community and the European semiconductor industry to better address the challenges defined in the European Chips Act.
