About Lam Research Corporation
Lam Research Corporation supplies wafer fabrication equipment and services to the semiconductor industry. The company designs, manufactures, markets, and services semiconductor processing equipment used in the fabrication of integrated circuits.
The companys etch systems shape the microscopic conductive and dielectric layers into circuits that define a chips final use and function. It also offers a portfolio of single-wafer clean technologies which allow its customers to implement customized yield-enhancing solutions.
The companys etch products selectively remove portions of various films from the wafer in the creation of semiconductors by utilizing various plasma-based technologies to create critical device features at technology nodes.
DFC Technology: The companys patented Dual Frequency Confined technology incorporates multi-frequency power with a physically confined plasma. The application of power at different frequencies provides improved process flexibility and allows different materials to be etched in the same chamber. Confinement also enables the companys proprietary in situ Waferless Autoclean technology to clean chamber components after each wafer has been etched. Used together, multi-frequency and WAC technologies provide a process environment for every wafer, preventing process drift and ensuring repeatable process results wafer-to-wafer and chamber-to-chamber.
2300 Exelan Flex, 2300 Exelan Flex45, and 2300 Flex D Series Dielectric Etch Systems: The 2300 Flex family allows a single chamber design to serve the requirements of a range of applications through multiple technology generations. Advances in system design, such as multiple frequencies, higher power capabilities, and tunable wafer temperature, meet the demanding uniformity and profile requirements for applications at the 32 nm node and beyond.
TCP Technology: The companys Transformer Coupled Plasma (TCP) technology provides capability for advanced conductor etch applications at the 32 nm node and beyond. By coupling radio frequency (RF) power into plasma at low pressures, the TCP technology provides capability to etch nanoscale features into silicon and metal films.
2300 Versys Kiyo, 2300 Versys Kiyo45, 2300 Kiyo C Series, 2300 Versys Metal, 2300 Versys Metal45, and 2300 Versys Metal L Conductor Etch Systems: The 2300 Kiyo product family combines iterative advances in technology to provide critical dimension (CD) uniformity for a range of conductor etch applications. Its etch products perform production-proven in situ etch of complex features.
MEMS and Deep Silicon Etch
TCP 9400DSiE Deep Silicon Etch System: The TCP 9400DSiE system is based on its production-proven TCP 9400 silicon etch series. The systems patented high-density TCP plasma source provides a configuration to serve the needs of silicon deep reactive ion etch (DRIE), offering process capability and flexibility for a range of micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS), advanced packaging, and power semiconductor applications.
Three-Dimensional Integrated Circuit Etch (3-D IC)

SWOT, which stands for Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats, is an analytical framework that identifies the internal and external factors that are favorable and unfavorable for a company.
Enhanced SWOT Analysis
Enhanced SWOT is a 3×3 grid that arranges strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats into one scheme:
- How to use the strengths to take advantage of the opportunities?
- How to use the strengths to reduce likelihood and impact of the threats?
- How to overcome the weaknesses that obstruct taking advantage of the opportunities?
- How to overcome the weaknesses that can make the threats a reality?
Upon answering these questions a company can develop a project plan to improve its business performance.
PESTEL (also termed as PESTLE) is an ideal tool to strategically analyze what influence different outside factors – political, economic, sociocultural, technological, environmental and legal – exert on a business to later chart its long term targets.
Being part of the external analysis when carrying out a strategic assessment or performing a market study, PESTEL gives an overview of diverse macro-environmental factors that any company should thoughtfully consider. By perceiving these outside environments, businesses can maximally benefit from the opportunities while minimizing the threats to the organization.
Key Factors Examined by PESTEL Analysis:
- Political – What opportunities and pressures are brought by political bodies and what is the degree of public regulations’ impact on the business?
- Economic – What economic policies, trends and structures are expected to affect the organization, what is this influence’s degree?
- Sociological – What cultural and societal aspects will work upon the demand for the business’s products and operations?
- Technological – What impact do the technological aspects, innovations, incentives and barriers have on the organization?
- Environmental – What environmental and ecological facets, both locally and farther afield, are likely to predetermine the business?
- Legal – What laws and legislation will exert influence on the style the business is carried out?
IFE, EFE, IE Matrices
The Internal Factor Evaluation matrix (IFE matrix) is a strategic management tool helping audit or evaluate major weaknesses and strengths in a business’s functional areas. In addition, IFE matrix serves as a basis for identifying and assessing relationships amongst those areas. The IFE matrix is utilised in strategy formulation.
The External Factor Evaluation matrix (EFE matrix) is a tool of strategic management that is typically utilised to assess current market conditions. It is an ideal instrument for visualising and prioritising the threats and opportunities a firm is facing.
The essential difference between the above mentioned matrices lies in the type of factors incorporated in the model; whilst the latter is engaged in internal factors, the former deals exceptionally with external factors – those exposed to social, political, economic, legal, etc. external forces.
Being a continuation of the EFE matrix and IFE matrix models, the Internal External matrix (IE matrix) rests upon an investigation of external and internal business factors integrated into one suggestive model.
Porter Five Forces Analysis
The Porter’s five forces analysis studies the industry of operation and helps the company find new sources of competitive advantage. The analysis surveys an industry through five major questions:
- What composes a threat of substitute products and services?
- Is there a threat of new competitors entering the market?
- What is the intensity of competitive rivalry?
- How big is the bargaining power of buyers?
- How significant is the bargaining power of suppliers?
VRIO stands for Value, Rarity, Imitability, Organization. This analysis helps to evaluate all company’s resources and capabilities and bring them together into one aggregate table that includes:
- Tangible resources
- Intangible resources
- Innovation and Creativity
- Organizational capabilities
The result of the analysis gives a clear picture of company’s competitive and economic implications, answering the questions if the resources mentioned above are:
- Costly to imitate?
- Organized properly?
