10:25am–11:30Silicon Magic CxO Panel


The CxO panel closes the conference with a conversation between Dan Hutcheson and several esteemed executives at a CxO level. 

This year, we will be examining what it takes to practically transition a new technology to manufacturing and through its yield ramp.
There’s no magic in it for these execs: they have to make finFETs yield today while rolling 10nm and 7nm processes down the gangway
from pathfinding into development. It is a task that has consumed many at prior nodes. They have closed their doors on Moore’s Law.
Our panelists are the champions who won at these nodes and will keep moving down the scaling path. They will do this with a
combination of their own internal excellence and an unparalleled ability to partner with others to align a global base of researchers
and engineers — all towards hitting a specific ramp date that is exactly two years after the last one. They’re going to talk about how
it’s done against a background in which every node gets bigger, faster, and riskier. They’ll provide their vision about the future, the challenges,
and the opportunities.
