Regions Largest Semiconductor Expo Features New Pavilions and Expanded Technical Program Content

SHANGHAI, China, January 10, 2005 -- SEMICON China returns to the Shanghai New International Expo Center (SNIEC) from March 15-17, 2005. The expo is presented by SEMI and the China Electronic Chamber of Commerce (CECC) and is co-located with electronicaChina and ProductronicaChina.

SEMICON China, launched in 1988, is the largest and most comprehensive exhibition and technical conference in China dedicated to semiconductor manufacturing technology. The expo will feature more than 1,300 booths, including German, UK and Korea pavilions. A new feature this year will be the IC Manufacturing and Design Automation pavilion.

“Semiconductor manufacturers in China continue to expand their IC production and capital investment,” said Mark Ding, president of SEMI China. “With this positive market environment, and several new features and programs, we anticipate excellent visitor turnout for SEMICON China 2005.”

In addition to three days of exhibits, the expo features technical and market briefing programs focusing on the latest trends in semiconductor manufacturing. The SEMI Technology Symposium (STS) offers technology overview sessions on testing and packaging, IC design for manufacturing and test, and environmental health and safety (EHS) standards.

A Semiconductor Industry Market Forum, held in co-operation with the Fabless Semiconductor Association (FSA) and the The Electrochemical Society (ECS), will feature speakers from companies in the electronic design automation (EDA) and fabless semiconductor market, as well as suppliers of wafer fabrication and assembly and test equipment.
