What is ALD and why does Intel use it?

ALD has been around since the 1970s. But it entered the limelight at 45nm, when Intel used ALD to deposit a high-k material called hafnium for the gate stack in a transistor. Ultimately, high-k replaced silicon dioxide, which was then running out of steam.

What are the limitations of ALD in microelectronics?

Multicomponent oxides and certain metals traditionally needed in the microelectronics industry are generally not cost efficient. The process of ALD is very slow and this is known to be its major limitation.

What is the ALD variant database?

The ALD Variant Database reports all (likely) pathogenic and benign variants conform to the nomenclature recommended by the Human Genome Variation Society. All variants, including those already published, are annotated...

How does aldald work?

ALD is based on surface controlled thin film deposition. During coating, two or more chemical vapors or gaseous precursors react sequentially on the substrate surface, producing a solid thin film (see schematic below).

Why choose ASM ALD?

ASM is the leading supplier of atomic layer deposition (ALD) equipment and process solutions for the semiconductor industry. Our ALD process technology delivers the highest performance available to support the next generation of semiconductor devices.

What is ALD (Alzheimer’s disease)?

As it is an X-linked genetic disease, which means, it most severely affects boys and men. ALD involves multiple organs in the body, but most prominently affects the brain and spinal cord. This brain disorder destroys myelin, the protective sheath that surrounds the brain’s neurons.

How many exomes are in the ALD variant database?

The data set spans >120,000 exomes and >15,000 genomes from unrelated individuals sequenced as part of various disease-specific and population genetic studies. This work has also identified variants in the ABCD1 gene, which are included in the ALD Variant Database.

What is the ALD mutation database?

The ALD Mutation Database. The ALD Mutation Database reports all mutations and variations conform to the nomenclature recommended by the Human Genome Variation Society. All mutations and variants, including those already published, are annotated...

How can I Share my ABCD1 variants with other diagnostic labs?

If your diagnostic laboratory uses the ALD Variant Database as a reference guide, please share your ABCD1 variants identified with the ALD Variant Database to make them available to others (your contribution will be acknowledged).

What is ALD info?

X-linked adrenoleukodystrophy (ALD) is an inherited metabolic disease that affects brain, spinal cord and adrenals. ALD info provides information on all aspects of ALD written and maintained by ALD researchers and physicians.
