From the Director’s Desk

Welcome to the first issue of Standards Watch, a new SEMI electronic newsletter tailored to the world of SEMI Standards! Whether you are looking for updates on the latest strategic moves—the formation of the Manufacturing Technology Forum (MTF)—updates on MEMS and flat panel display activity around the world, or our partnering efforts in the nanotechnology realm, you can find it all here, every other month.

The SEMI International Standards Program, now in its 33rd year, encompasses all aspects of an automated fab and provides a platform for emerging and maturing technologies to reach their full potential. We thank the over 1,500 volunteers and their companies for contributing to critical solutions that help accelerate time to market and reduce manufacturing cost. If you are not a Standards volunteer expert just yet, we hope that this newsletter will change your mind! From our global SEMI Standards team to you – welcome, and happy reading!
