A Conversation with Laura Matz About Pioneering Secure Data Collaboration for Semiconductor Manufacturing
Show Notes

In this episode, Françoise von Trapp interviews Laura Matz, CEO of Athinia™ and Chief Science and Technology Officer of Merck KGaA, Darmstadt, Germany, about the growing need for data collaboration between materials suppliers and semiconductor device manufacturers, and the solution she helped create. 

Over the past 10 years, more new materials have been introduced into semiconductor manufacturing at each device node. At the same time, processes continue to tighten. This is increasing sensitivities to materials variations. Because of this, materials companies have to publicly communicate on excursions in the materials supply chain. Until now. 

 Matz explains how a secure data ecosystem platform can use Big Data and AI to solve these issues. She provides details on how this platform addresses both IP security and cybersecurity. 

The platform she describes, Athinia™, was launched in December 2021. This secure data collaboration platform allows semiconductor device manufacturers and materials suppliers to share, aggregate, and analyze data to unlock efficiencies and time to market while improving quality, supply chain, and sustainability.   

Six months in, Matz has some exciting news to share about a collaboration with Micron. She also talks about her role in conceptualizing this platform and bringing it to life.
