A note from the Conference Chair, Pete Singer –
The ConFab — an executive conference now in its 14th year — brings together influential decision-makers from all parts of the semiconductor supply chain for three days of thought-provoking talks and panel discussions, networking events and select, pre-arranged breakout business meetings.
Why the time is now:
We will take a close look at the new applications driving the semiconductor industry, the technology that will be required at the device and process level to meet new demands, and – perhaps most importantly – the kind of strategic collaboration that will be required. It is this combination of business, technology and social interactions that make The ConFab so unique and so valuable. Here are six key trends that will each have a huge impact in the near future:
What you can expect at The ConFab 2018:
To meet the demands of these diverse applications, much innovation will be required on the technology side. Huge efforts are also needed to reduce the overall cost. Since the beginning, the economics of semiconductor manufacturing has been a focal point of The ConFab. In 2018, we will be including insights into the emerging and rapidly growing new markets and what semiconductor device manufacturers need to know to successfully tap into those markets.
New technology needed in manufacturing will be another focal point of The ConFab. EUV is finally entering volume production, ushering in a new era of patterning for the 7 and 5nm generations. Many new materials are being considered, transistors are evolving from FinFETs to gate-all-around nanowires, on chip communication with silicon photonics will soon emerge, and advanced packaging/heterogeneous integration is ever more critical.
With greater demands throughout the industry, heightened interest and involvement, the 2018 program will explore how businesses, people and technology must all work together to meet the world’s insatiable demand for new electronics.
The ConFab three-day event also includes well-attended networking evening receptions plus breakfasts, lunches and refreshment breaks. These offer exceptional opportunities for people to meet in a relaxed environment conducive to making lasting connections building strong business relationships.
