When Semicon Europa opens in Munich, Germany, (November 14-17) it will, for the first time ever, be co-located with the long-standing European electronics show, productronica, creating a major single event for European electronics manufacturing and attracting thousands of visitors from across the electronic supply chain.
Industry 4.0/Smart Manufacturing and Big Data among hot topics as chip industry technologists converge to examine challenges and solutions for advanced process control (APC) in microelectronics manufacturing.
Semiconductor and display manufacturing are highly complex undertakings, but in that complexity lay many opportunities to improve the speed, efficiency, productivity and environmental impact of production tools and factory systems.
CEA Leti recently hosted the European MEMS & Sensor Summit in Grenoble, France, considered by many in More-than-Moore (MTM) circles as a must-attend event.
The wireless landscape is becoming far more sophisticated as Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) and mesh networks such as Zigbee and Thread take hold. When Silicon Valley tech entrepreneur Lucio Lanza was asked what the Next Big Thing is likely to be for the semiconductor industry, he gave exactly the right answer: "connectivity."
As devices become smaller and more densely packed, and the complexity of integrated circuits grows, defect reduction becomes more challenging while remaining critical to chipmakers’ competitiveness.
