Graphenea finalist for “Best of West” SEMICON award

Cambridge, Massachusetts — June 20, 2016 — Graphenea is on the list of finalists for the “Best of West” award, presented each year at SEMICON West, one of the world's largest events on semiconductor technology. More than 700 companies exhibit at SEMICON West and 26,000+ professionals attend, representing the leading global technology companies. The “Best of West” award, presented by Solid State Technology and SEMI, was established to recognize new products moving the industry forward with technological developments in the electronics supply chain.

The Best of West 2016 Finalists will be displaying their tools on the show floor at Moscone Center from July 12-14. Graphenea was selected for the company's effort:

  • Graphenea:Graphene Integration on CMOS-Fab ─ Allows large-scale manufacture of 200mm CMOS-compatible graphene wafers (SEMI Standards), with low metal contamination levels. The industrial production method will produce uniform, large-scale/high-performance graphene in high yields and a reliable manner (Advanced Materials and Materials Management category; Booth #632)

The Best of West Award winner will be announced during SEMICON West ( on Wednesday, July 13, 2016.

Graphenea will have the opportunity to do a presentation to showcase its product at the Best of West Showcase Session held at the TechXPOT South stage on Thursday, July 14 from 2:00pm-3:30pm.
