Synergies and Opportunities in Semiconductor and Information Technology for Powering Smart Manufacturing and Smart Healthcare 

Advanced Semiconductor Technology Conference
6-7 October 2016
Marina Bay Sands Expo & Convention Centre, Singapore

Held concurrently with FLEX Southeast Asia

The Advanced Semiconductor Technology Conference (ASTC) is designed to serve the Southeast Asia semiconductor industry through the sharing of information focused on the development of technology innovations advancing semiconductor design and manufacturing.

ASTC will bring together industry experts and professionals with expertise in electronics and semiconductor technologies for smart manufacturing and smart heath care. Each of these areas will be the focus of a full day of this two-day conference:

Part 1: Smart Manufacturing

The key focus of this forum is to provide the audience with an understanding of current solutions, major challenges, and perspectives facing Smart Manufacturing, parallel to a paradigm shift in manufacturing trend from low-mixed high volume to high-mixed low volume. Specifically, it would outline the needs of foundries and OEM providers, as well as identify the technology challenges and opportunities to meet these requirements in the most cost-efficient way as the economy moved towards an IoT enabled Smart Manufacturing era.

For example, at the component level of key functional enablers such as Machine Health Monitoring, Human Machine Interface, what are current limitations and what are the opportunities for monolithic "sensor hub" process integration, advanced wafer level packaging, as well as novel sensor development. Similarly, from a system point of view, what are the requirements for energy-efficient cognitive computing and storage, cognitive wireless communication, advanced semiconductor packaging, and artificial intelligence (AI), and how can how can existing / emerging capabilities in these areas be leveraged to achieve Smart Manufacturing cost-effectively?

Part 2: Smart Healthcare

The gathering, processing, analysing and seamless sharing of real-time health data among the healthcare ecosystem are expected to bring about paradigm shift in the quality of care-giving, rehabilitation, wellness and prevention. Advances in semiconductor and information technologies are accelerating this transformation towards smart healthcare.

Against a backdrop of understanding technology needs and challenges for building wearable, implantable, portable healthcare devices for future clinical, home-based and mobile diagnostic and monitoring applications, this forum will delve into various technology components - novel devices and materials for smart sensors, ultra-low power circuits, energy-efficient cognitive computing, data analytics,  robust data security technologies, and, advanced semiconductor packaging,  that are essential for the development of future healthcare devices.

Participants will gain insights on:

a.       Industry and market analysis of healthcare needs, industry drivers and market opportunities (market analysts company)

b.      Current unmet needs from healthcare  professionals and service providers and innovative solutions that can be realized by advent of wearable/ implanted diagnostic devices, secure & robust wireless communications and big data analytics

c.       How advances in novel materials, sensors, energy-efficient processing, wireless technologies, cyber-physical security, and machine learning algorithms can support the emerging demands ( by leading technology solution providers & experts)

In the panel discussion, technology solution leaders, healthcare service providers,  clinicians and health practitioners will lead an interactive discussion on the future of healthcare, challenges and potential solutions

Representatives from medical community (clinicians, healthcare practitioners), healthcare technology leaders, equipment manufacturers are encouraged to attend this forum which seeks to provide well-rounded coverage on market, technology and end-user perspective.
