In a fast changing environment, the semiconductor industry is looking to boost revenue growth and profitability, manufacture new products that meet customer needs, and efficiently manage global operations. The semiconductor supply chain will be stressed as artificial intelligence (AI), and the Internet of Things (IoT) expand in popularity and continuous demands from the smartphone industry and other high-tech businesses. The problem will be exacerbated by continuous international trade tensions, which might add to the cost of semiconductor materials and hamper global industry collaboration. To meet these needs, new solutions are required.
Automation may be of help to semiconductor companies to achieve smoother, more efficient manufacturing processes. Glitches at any point in the manufacturing process represents a financial and material penalty, given the length of time required to produce semiconductor devices. Automation and AI go hand in hand. Smart machines help in the growth of a facility’s capabilities and the identification and elimination of production bottlenecks. Intelligent automated systems use fault detection and classification systems to recognize production abnormalities—outliers in machine parameters and sensing data—to avoid product reliability difficulties and production losses.
The employment of highly accurate robotics has proven to be the most efficient technique to prepare devices for market when dealing with the microscopic chores required to produce semiconductor applications. The semiconductor market demands fast integrated circuits and semiconductor applications while maintaining high reliability and performance criteria. It’s only logical to use small robots to boost production speed without losing quality. The speed and accuracy required to orient semiconductor parts in two or more planes while concurrently completing circuit board packaging are provided by high-speed delta-style robots with six-axis articulation.
At this juncture, various semiconductor technology service companies are entering the market to cater to the different needs of enterprises. To help them choose the solution that best fits their requirement, Semiconductor Review has compiled a list of the most promising semiconductor technology service companies.
