WS619: Intellectual Assets for Micro/Nano Electronics and Lithography
This workshop will cover the basics of intellectual property (IP), and in the process some of the key inventions and IP issues that have enabled micro/nanoelectronics, and the important subcategory of micro/nanolithography, to achieve their present status. The initial overview on IP will focus on patents, but will also cover trademarks, trade secrets, and copyright issues that all engineers and scientists should be aware of for best leveraging technical and business objectives, whether for a small or large company. Attention will then turn to some of the more important events that have occurred in electronics and lithography in terms of inventing, both from the technical, legal, and business perspectives. Several key patents will be discussed and analyzed, thereby providing examples to help motivate how one might develop his/her own innovation aspirations. Events that have occurred within electronics and microelectronics will be noted that have significantly changed technologists' views on IP. Methods for patent portfolio management and IP mapping will be discussed. Finally, speculations and outlooks will be discussed on possible directions for the exciting future anticipated for nano electronics and lithography, again, from the perspective of areas of inventions.
