3 Must-See Keynote Presentations at SEMICON West 2019

Jun 25, 2019 10:07:10 AM / by Leah Langsdorf

Our team is gearing up to attend this year’s SEMICON West in San Francisco from July 9 – 11. We’ll be showcasing Promerus’ ability to tailor polymer properties for application-specific requirements by overviewing our materials.

Outside of exhibiting, our team will attend keynote presentations to hear about the latest innovations across the microelectronics supply chain, including components, materials and more.

With over 80 hours of technical programming, you won’t want to miss out on this opportunity to network with partners and prospects from nearly every segment of the global microelectronics industry, including Promerus.

Planning to attend this year’s conference? Take a look at our list of must-see presentations below.

1. Component Quality & Traceability in Microelectronics Manufacturing

There’s a great sense of urgency to prepare the supply chain for high voltage microelectronics. However, industry standards on how defects are measured on various components are severely lacking.

In the presentation Component Quality & Traceability in Microelectronics Manufacturing, learn about efforts on baseline measurements for critical components, developed under the SEMI Semiconductor Components, Instruments and Subsystems (SCIS) Technology Community. This session will also present case studies on how these methods influence component selection to ultimately reduce defectivity during manufacturing.

Details: July 9 from 10:10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at TechTALKS Stage North.

2. Materials: Reducing Risk for Customers Panel Discussion

With the increasing complexity of IC architecture, it’s essential to define new ways to detect contamination sources, as this reduces costs and risks for IDMs.

In the presentation Materials: Reducing Risk for Customers Panel Discussion, panelists from KLA Corporation, Preston Williamson and Samsung Semiconductor will explore the role of particles and impurities in IC architecture, plus ways to eliminate contamination sources.

Details: July 9 from 3:25 to 3:55 p.m. at TechTALKS Stage North.

3. MEMS Manufacturing for 2020 and Beyond

MEMS are the leading edge of double-digit growth in commercial applications. In fact, they’re the source of much of the buzz around AI and machine learning. But, how do manufacturers keep up with an intensifying demand for devices that are smaller, lighter and thinner?

In the presentation MEMS Manufacturing for 2020 and Beyond, panelists from EV Group, LAM Research, Rogue Valley Microdevices, SoftMEMS and SPTS Technologies will explain how to keep pace with industry demand for faster design cycles, higher integration, lower power and smaller footprints.

Details: July 11 from 10:30 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. at TechTALKS Stage South.
