High Performance Computing Consortium Simulation-based engineering, Technology solutions

RPI has been able to employ its own expertise in modeling and simulation to address a wide array of the engineering issues that crop up routinely at the forefront of semiconductor manufacturing research. The insights that come out of this the RPI/IBM collaboration are put to use in IBM’s research and manufacturing facilities on an ongoing basis. Some of the questions that have been looked at impact manufacturing at several different scales: leading edge lithography, alignment issues in memory and logic devices, and reliability in packaging.
