The equipment side of the story: Moore's Law would not possible without semiconductor equipment. It's the steady improvements by equipment makers that allow chip nodes to progress to ever-smaller critical dimensions. In this conversation with Randhir Thakur, executive vice president and general manager of the Silicon Systems Group (SSG) at Applied Materials, we focus on how the equipment side of the industry enables Moore's Law. We discuss what it takes to keep up with the semiconductor industry and the importance of collaboration, trust, and talent. It ends with Dr. Thakur’s vision of where semiconductors are going in the future and what it will take to keep Moore's Law alive.
