71 ANOMALY DETECTION > Overlay of process & subfab information > Integration of existing sensors Sustainability Report 2021 Customer Partnerships to Drive Industry- Wide Change Through our focus on improving the sustainability performance of new and existing tools, Applied Materials is helping semiconductor manufacturers realize substantial energy savings, meet their own sustainability goals and shrink the industry’s overall energy and chemical footprint. Applied continues to partner with one of our key customers, TSMC, to create a system able to verify the efficacy of energy-saving improvements developed as part of the ISO 50001 standard for energy management. Leveraging our iSystem TM controller, the new software conducts automated measurement of power usage from the operation of semiconductor fabrication tools, gauging actual energy use against a baseline. This system is currently undergoing testing. Earlier TSMC energy-saving measures developed from iSystem TM data have resulted in annual electricity savings of 5.1 million kWh, GHG reductions of 9,700 MT CO 2 e, and cost benefits of US$2.4 million. In 2021, we continued to reduce area per wafer pass on Metal Deposition products (>30%), ALD products (>25%), and Etch products (>15%). As we develop new tools, upgrade existing systems and create advanced service products, we proactively communicate their potential for cost reductions, yield improvements and sustainability benefits to our customers. OLED Displays: Superior Viewing and Efficiency To take next-generation technologies mainstream, manufacturers need the tools to simplify fabrication, drive down production costs, and make consumer prices competitive. That’s what we offered them in the 2000s, when our equipment helped usher in the era of flat-panel LCD displays to replace older CRTs. Now Applied’s advanced manufacturing tool suites are doing it again for revolutionary OLED mobile, TV, and computer displays, which offer superior image quality, cooler running temperatures, and lower energy consumption. iSystem ™ Gas Usage Reporting iSystem ™ Energy Reporting iSystem ™ Energy Savings iSystem ™ Anomaly Detection iSystem ™ Sleep Mode ACHIEVE ENERGY SAVINGS - Idle & sleep modes - Dry pumps & abatement including backup - Continuous improvement ENERGY PERFORMANCE REPORTING - Performance reports & Subfab Equipment KPIs - Baseline & Savings Auto-calculation (ISO50001) - Precisely manage energy usage & sub-fab operation ANOMALY DETECTION - Overlay of process & subfab information - Integration of existing sensors - Detection of trends ENERGY PERFORMANCE REPORTING > Performance reports & Subfab Equipment KPIs > Baseline & Savings Auto-calculation (ISO50001) > Precisely manage energy usage & sub-fab operation ACHIEVE ENERGY SAVINGS > Idle & sleep modes > Dry pumps & abatement including backup > Continuous improvement INTRODUCTION PURPOSE PEOPLE PLANET PROGRESS Design for Sustainability Promoting the Circular Economy Product Safety Supply Chain Responsibility
