Developments and new emerging applications of semiconductor devices
November 28 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 am
The Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering is organising the third edition of the Departmental Distinguished Industry-Academia Interaction Lecture Series on November 28, 2022. The title of the talk is “Semiconductor Devices Developments & New Emerging Applications”. Dr Srinivasa Yeduru, Senior Manager, Technology Pathfinding Group at Micron Technologies Boise, USA, will be the keynote speaker for the event.
Abstract of the Talk
The creation of new semiconductor devices, technologies and applications will have a major impact on the semiconductor industry. Artificial intelligence (AI) is expected to drive the major expansion of the semiconductor industry due to its high demand. In recent years, high demand has stemmed from the automotive market as it is expected to grow the fastest in the AI sector. Autonomous vehicles or self-driving cars are equipped with sensors that allow them to see the world around them. Self-driving cars are already on the roads today, and they are likely to play a disruptive role not only in personal transportation but also in many other industries as well. As years go by, there will be a huge spike in demand for AI-tailored semiconductors as connectivity, sensing, and instant computing will become increasingly central to everyday devices. Semiconductors play a prominent role in the technology that people use every day. As technology continues to expand and transform at a rapid pace, many emerging application development demand novel high-performance devices which continue to scale with costs.
Dr Srinivasa Yeduru has 13 years of experience in the area of new product development, technology pathfinding & excellence, and process integration to manufacture technologies like memory devices, high voltage MOSFETs & IGBTs, and MEMS. Before joining Micron technologies, he worked at ONSEMI as the senior manager, leading a team of process integration and process engineers. Prior to that, in Infineon technologies, he held diversified management roles as product development manager for high voltage MOSFETs, and process integration manager covering fab, post fab and assembly process development and integration responsibilities. He earned his doctorate in mechanical engineering, specializing in microelectronic devices, from Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, Germany. He holds many patents, authored books and several international publications on power semiconductors and MEMS.
