Astrileux designs advanced engineering technologies that enable high volume manufacturing of next generation integrated circuits (IC) at 14 nanometers and smaller to accelerate the arrival of faster, smaller, more powerful mobile devices for the era of zettabyte computing.
Dr. Supriya Jaiswal is the CEO and Founder of Astrileux Corporation, a next generation semiconductor company. Supriya holds bachelors and masters degrees in physics from the University of Oxford, a masters degree in atomic physics and a Ph.D. in engineering physics from University of Virginia, and professional qualifications in business and finance from the University of California, San Diego. In 2015, Supriya was elected to be a Senior Member of SPIE for distinction and honors in optics and photonics. She was listed on SPIE’s 2016 Women in Optics. The Astrileux team also includes Katya Kirillova (business operations manager) and Dr. Wei-Fan Kuan (fabrication engineer).
Astrileux is the winner of the 2016 Material Research Society iMatSci competition, and the 2015 winner of the Semicon West innovations showcase. Astrileux is funded by National Science Foundation and CASIS, the Center of Advancement of Science in Space. In 2015 Astrileux was voted at one of San Diego’s coolest start-ups by the venture capital community.
Critical need: As the semiconductor industry seeks to manufacture integrated circuits as small as 14 nm, 10 nm and 7 nm at low cost in accordance with Moore’s Law.
Technology vision: Our technology aims to accelerate the rate of manufacture of these chips in high volume.
Current state-of-the-art: The current technology uses deep ultraviolet (DUV) and extreme ultraviolet lithography (EUV) to pattern the architecture of integrated circuits into wafers.
Key innovation: Our technology is focused on speeding up the rate of patterning of ICs
Competing technology: Electron beam lithography and nanoimprinting are competing technologies in the IC manufacture industry.
First market hypothesis: At a sizable percentage of US GDP semiconductor manufacturing is always a promising and exciting market where small changes have dynamic impact.
Potential for impact: Next generation integrated circuits will be affordable and globally accessible with lower energy consumption.
