The Internet of Things.  The Smart Grid.  Wearable Electronics.  The Green Home.  Intelligent Buildings.  Hybrid Electric Vehicles.  Ten years ago, these were all just concepts.  Today, microcontrollers, sensors and embedded computing are making these concepts a reality.  The electronics revolution is enhancing our driving experience, saving energy, and improving medical diagnostics.  What else is on the horizon? 

Please join your colleagues at the SEMI Arizona Breakfast Forum as we focus on Semiconductor process and industry trends and manufacturing solutions that are addressing the electronics revolution.  We will also discuss how Education/Workforce Initiatives are helping to bring technology jobs to Arizona.
