Time and time again, “multidisciplinary” research is touted as essential to innovation. That is why, from April 13-17, 2020, researchers working in seemingly unrelated fields will gather in Phoenix, Arizona, to promote, share and discuss issues and developments across disciplines. The 2020 MRS Spring Meeting & Exhibit is the key forum to present research to an interdisciplinary and international audience.
We look forward to you joining us in Tucson, Arizona for the 35th annual International Conference on Compound Semiconductor Manufacturing Technology (CS-MANTECH).

Over the past 4+ years KFPI has been involved in the research, testing, and development of fire safety solutions regarding pyrophoric chemicals hazards. This included many projects regarding the fire detection and fire suppression/protection of energetic materials such as pyrophoric liquid metal organics like TMA (trimethyl aluminum).
On January 7th, 2020, the Kioxia NAND Flash Plant located in Yokkaichi, Japan, experienced an equipment fire. The fire occurred in a cleanroom facility, in Fab 6. Although there were no casualties, the equipment was damaged, and the production facility has been shut down for inspection. According to the latest updates by Kioxia, this fire incident will cause a complete shutdown in production of 3D NAND flash memory for at least a two-week period of investigation, repairs, and recommissioning of the production line.
We look forward to a prosperous Year of the Rat in 2020! KFPI will continue to work diligently to earn your confidence in our semiconductor equipment fire safety solutions. We look forward to the hard work, and to the success that it will bring in the new year. 恭喜发财! 新年快乐! 祝您新年快樂！您和家人的健康和幸福！
