Programs Include Focus on IP, Electronic Design Automation

SHANGHAI, CHINA, March 9, 2005 -- Semiconductor foundries and IC packaging and test subcontractors will be featured in a special pavilion as part of SEMICON China 2005, to be held March 15-17 at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre (SNIEC).

The inclusion of the IC Manufacturing and Design Automation Pavilion, and related programs, positions SEMICON China as the first event on the mainland to serve the needs of professionals working in all parts of the IC supply chain, from design and EDA to wafer fab and packaging and test.

"The Chinese community of IC designers, manufacturers, and equipment and material suppliers face common challenges in design for manufacturing, yield and test,” said Mark Ding, president of SEMI China. “SEMICON China and its programs provide participants with a unified platform to address these common issues and interests."

The IC Manufacturing and Design Automation Pavilion, a new feature at the expo, will include Amkor Assembly & Test (Shanghai) Co. Ltd., ASMC, CSIP, Grace Semiconductor Manufacturing Corp., Hejian Technology (Suzhou) Co. Ltd., Jiangsu Changjian Electronics Co. Ltd., Nantong Fujitsu Microeletronics Co. Ltd., Semiconductor Manufacturing International Corp. (SMIC), Shanghai Hua Hong NEC, the Shanghai Silicon IP Exchange Center, and TSMC (Shanghai) Co. Ltd.

In conjunction with the pavilion, SEMI and the Fabless Semiconductor Association (FSA) present the International Collaboration Series on Intellectual Property at the Riverfront Hotel, Shanghai, on March 15. This seminar will provide information on how to evaluate, select, purchase and integrate semiconductor IP.

Scheduled speakers include representatives from IP, EDA, foundry and consulting companies, including Broadcom, Mentor Graphics, Synopsys, TSMC, and others. Shuttle buses will provide transportation between the SNIEC and the hotel venue.

"Industry associations such as the FSA and SEMI share a common interest in providing our members with the resources to help them respond to rapid changes in the industry," said Jeremy Wang, Asia Pacific regional executive director for the FSA. "The FSA has invited top executives from the world’s leading fabless and EDA companies to visit SEMICON China and the IC Manufacturing and Design Automation Pavilion."
