West 2010 takes place July 13-15 at the Moscone
Center in San Francisco, Calif.
New programs are scheduled to cover leading-edge semiconductor manufacturing,
emerging market opportunities in LEDs, flexible electronics, MEMS, and
productivity opportunities in established fabs. In addition, the show floor
will host hundreds of exhibitors showcasing thousands of new products,
technologies, services, and solutions.
keynotes and executive panels are slated for the event. The opening keynote, “From Ghz. to Systems to Solutions: Our Industry in
Transition,” will be presented at 9:00 a.m. on July 13 by
Bernard S. Meyerson, Ph.D., an IBM fellow and vice president of
Innovation and Global University Relations for IBM Systems and Technology Group. At 1:00 p.m., an executive summit
moderated by SEMI North America president Jonathan
Davis will discuss strategic business and technology issues influencing the
supply chain from consumer to manufacturing technology.
At 1:30 p.m. on July 14, Paolo A. Gargini, Ph.D., chairman of the International Technology
Roadmap for Semiconductors (ITRS) and director of Technology Strategy at INTEL will give a talk entitled “Welcome to
the Next Decade!”
Co-Located with SEMICON
the 21st Annual IEEE/SEMI Advanced Semiconductor Manufacturing
(ASMC 2010) will be co-located with SEMICON West for the first time. ASMC
provides a venue for industry professionals to network, learn, and share
knowledge on new and best-method semiconductor manufacturing practices and
concepts. The conference synergy leads to understandings and relationships that
can benefit participating companies in a variety of ways, including
accelerating innovation, promoting successes, and getting a more thorough
understanding of standards and benchmarks.
Keynotes at the event will include:
“High Density 3D Through Silicon Stacking – Manufacturing Readiness and
Challenges,” presented by Matt Nowak, director of Engineering in the
VLSI Technology Group, Qualcomm; and “CMOS Transistor Scaling Past 32 nm and
Implications on Variation,” given by Kelin Kuhn, Intel fellow and
director of Advanced Device Technology at Intel Corp.
