ASMC 2017


Advanced Semiconductor Manufacturing Conference —ASMC 2017

ASMC is the leading international technical conference for exploring solutions to improve the collective micro-electronics manufacturing expertise. The conference provides an unparalleled platform for semiconductor professionals to network and learn the latest information in the practical application of advanced manufacturing strategies and methodologies.  Registration is open and the ASMC schedule is confirmed.

Peer-reviewed technical papers presented at ASMC highlight industry innovations with specific results.  Because ASMC call for papers is developed by a technical committee representing a large cross section of the device, equipment/materials industry and academia, technical presentations are a result of an industry-wide call for papers, the peer-reviewed and accepted abstracts reflect manufacturing issues which are significant and current. IEEE EDS and CPMT are technical sponsors of ASMC 2017.  Select ASMC manuscripts are republished in a Special Section of the IEEE Transactions on Semiconductor Manufacturing.

Dick James, Senior Technology Analyst, Chipworks on ASMC:

ASMC is an annual conference focused on the manufacturing of semiconductor devices; it differs from other conferences; the emphasis is on what goes on in the wafer fab, not the R&D labs, and the papers are not research papers – some are better described as “tales from the fab”!  I always come away from ASMC impressed by the quality of the engineering involved; not being a fab person myself any more, it’s easy to get disconnected from the density of effort required to equip a fab, keep it running and bring new products/processes into production. Usually the guys in the fab only get publicity if something goes wrong!  After all, it’s the nitty-gritty of manufacturing in the fab that gets the chips out of the door—ASMC discusses the work that pushes the yield and volumes up and keeps them there.
