Equipment and Materials Markets: 2.5X Growth in Next Five Years for 3D-IC and WLP

Anne-Marie Dutron SEMI Europe Big names in the microelectronics industry are introducing their first products on the market with TSV such as MEMS, FPGA, or CMOS Image Sensors that incorporate 3D TSV or stacked die on interposer technology. What will the projected rapid growth in the market mean for OSATs, IDMs, design houses, and material and equipment suppliers?

The upcoming 3D TSV summit will help answer this and other questions. In addition to providing an important platform for business analysis, the year's third edition of the 3D TSV Summit promises to be a technical "tour de force," hosting some of the most influential companies in 3D-IC.

Solid Years: Cautious Optimism Drives Equipment Spending into 2015

By Christian G. Dieseldorff, Industry Research & Statistics Group, SEMI

Expect 18% growth for 2014 and 2015. 177 facilities worldwide investing about US$34 billion on semiconductor equipment. In 2015, the investments are even higher.


ITPC 2014 - Innovation in the Shadow of Volcanic Change

Even with double digit growth, huge challenges are ahead with the move from planar to FinFET transistors, 193 nm immersion lithography being pushed well below 14 nm, and with an explosion of new materials to integrate.


MEMS Executive Congress 2014: What's Next for MEMS

By Paula Doe, SEMI

The MEMS market is driving towards maturity with a developed ecosystem to ease use and grow applications. But the market is bringing plenty of demands for new technologies and changes in how companies will compete.


Europe Serious About Investment

A new European trust fund worth 21 Billion, that will enable the European Investment Bank (EIB) to fund loans to the value of 63 Billion, will be operational as of mid-2015.
