SEMI Texas Spring Forum: How the Internet of Things will Impact New Manufacturing Solutions

Tuesday, April 22, 2014
7:30 AM-11:30 AM
Intel Corporation 1300 S. Mopac Expressway Austin, TX 78746

The benefits from the Internet of Things (IoT) wave are enormous, with unit volume projections of 20 to 75 billion devices by 2020. IoT will change the face of chip manufacturing, from extension of fab life spans to the way ICs, MEMS, and sensors are designed and produced.  Join experts from Applied Materials, ARM, Brewer Science, Cisco, Freescale and Intel, as they discuss the vast potential for the Internet of Things and how it will make our society smarter and better connected.  The SEMI Texas Spring Forum will address:

  • IoT and IoE – Real or Hype?
  • Meaning for users and suppliers, and how to prepare
  • Value opportunities across the supply chain
  • Best practices and key enablers
  • Requirements and implications for devices and applications
  • Difference between IOT silicon, platforms, software, and ecosystems
  • IoT inside the fab
  • Impact on equipment and materials suppliers
  • How suppliers can make their IoT customers successful
  • Pathways to make everyone successful
