Japan Earthquake: Applied Materials Update

Reposted from the Applied Materials Blog

by Matt Ceniceros

Today, a tsunami spawned by one of the largest earthquakes recorded, with a magnitude 8.9, slammed Japan’s eastern coast.

Applied Materials has offices and operations in Japan and we’re relieved to report all Applied Materials employees have been accounted for and are safe.

We have already made shifts in our supply chain and are working closely with our customers and suppliers to prepare our operations to support customer needs.

Our thoughts go out to our employees and customers, their families and all of the people of Japan during this tragedy.

Heads up on MEMS programs and speaking opportunities at SEMICON West

There’s still some time to have input on the MEMS programs at this summer’s SEMICON West! SEMICON West is July 12-14 this year, in San Francisco as always.  Deadline for abstracts for presentations is March 15.

The main Tuesday morning MEMS TechXpot session will focus on issues of industry structure and enabling new device technologies. Global Foundries will be giving its take on what CMOS learnings bring to volume MEMS production, Yole Développement will be speaking on trends in industry structural and manufacturing technology, Sand9 will present on CSP technology extending MEMS oscillator performance to wireless applications, and we have even more exciting news to announce soon!

A little Thank You note

In an earlier email I posed the question “what have you done in the past ten years?” and I was pleasantly surprised to hear the response from many of you. Some climbed mountains while others founded companies. Some started families and attempted to balance life/family/work (I include myself here). Some have left large companies to join new ventures and others closed the door on a startup to join a large “more stable” company. Funny how much can change in ten years. Let’s not even talk about the changes in weight, hair color (or hair loss!)…
