It is an industrial sector that groups together the activities of designing, manufacturing and marketing of components based on semiconductor materials.
These activities contribute to the production of information and communication technology goods and services to the extent that they provide the basic component of these technologies: the integrated circuit (IC). These components are at the heart of the computer servers, routers of data transport networks, telephone terminals and more recently connected objects and cyber-physical systems at the heart of the industry revolution 4.0. This industrial sector is one of the most innovative in the world and the engineering of materials is at the heart.
The development and production of these materials requires extremely fine process control. The development and production cycle generates extremely high costs. POLLEN offers software solutions to reduce these costs through data science.
