FROM THE SEMI EUROPE PRESIDENT

SEMICON Europa 2014 Brings the Supply-Chain Closer Together

Heinz Kundert, SEMI Europe PresidentThe big picture in microelectronics was very clear at SEMICON Europa 2014. Consolidation will continue as the race to new technologies and applications will move on. The exhibitors, events and special pavilions at SEMICON Europa 2014 clearly demonstrated the strengths of Europe's microelectronic ecosystem.

SEMICON Europa in Grenoble enriched potential business for exhibitors and attendees beyond equipment and materials by showcasing new opportunities of nontraditional markets such as design tools (EDA), Packaging, Components or Systems in Imaging, Medtech, Power Electronics, Plastic Electronics, Security and more.

China's LED Fab Industry Will Install More than 1,000 MOCVD Tools from 2014 to 2018

By Daniel QI, Chief Analyst of LED Industry, IRC, SEMI China

As a result of cost reduction and performance improvements, LED lighting is becoming more and more competitive in general lighting market.


IoT Sees Real Adoption in Industry and Drives Development of Ecosystem

By Paula Doe, SEMI

The smart watch may get the press, but smart connected sensors in the factory are quietly saving companies millions a year.




Simplifying the Complexity of New Material Development in the Semiconductor Industry

By Wayne Mitchell, VP and GM, Global Electronics, Air Products

To be a reliable supplier to the industry going forward, materials suppliers must reduce complexity. Enhancing device performance, reducing power consumption, shrinking form factors, and lowering the cost for the next generation of smart phones, tablets, PCs, and wearables are just some of the primary drivers.


450mm Standards Update: October 2014

The industry is continuing to develop the standards that will be essential to high-volume manufacturing on larger substrates.

Wrap-up: SEMI Strategic Materials Conference

By Karey Holland and Sue Davis, Techcet Group
The SEMI Strategic Materials Conference 2014 was very well attended with people from several of the leading IC makers as well as suppliers of equipment and materials to the fabs.


FD-SOI Front and Center at Very Successful SEMICON Europa

By Adele Hars
GlobalFoundries is hot on FD-SOI. Qualcomm's interested in it for IoT. ST's got more amazing low-power FD-SOI results. These are just some of the highlights that came out of the Low Power Conference during SEMICON Europa 2014.


Tetsuro Higashi to Receive the SEMI Sales and Marketing Excellence Award

Terry Higashi will receive the 18th SEMI Sales and Marketing Excellence Award for outstanding achievement in semiconductor equipment and materials.
