FROM THE EVP OF SEMI EMERGING MARKETS

SEMI Members Exploring New Markets in Organic, Printed and Flexible Electronics

Tom Morrow After years of development, the technology for making electronic circuits with organic materials, non-vacuum processes, and flexible substrates is beginning to make significant progress. Leading the way are OLED displays where Merrill Lynch estimates the market will grow from US$ 4 billion in 2011 to $20B in 2015 and as high as $35 billion in 2017. Samsung alone is expected to spend $5 billion a year on OLED capex annually for the next several years. As the OLED display market develops, many of the new manufacturing solutions, technologies and materials that emerge may be applied to other flexible and organic electronic applications including OLED lighting, thin-film logic and memory, thin-film batteries, and organic PV.

Global SMT & Packaging is THE assembly journal for electronics manufacturers worldwide. The magazines, websites and newsletters offer solution-led technical articles, insightful columns, coverage of industry news and events, and an exploration of the latest technology emerging in the sector.

Foundries and OSATs Driving Taiwan Investment
By Clark Tseng, SEMI Taiwan Industry Research & Statistics
2012 started out with a mixed bag of results in Q1. Foundry and memory makers were mired in a market trough that continued from the weak second half of 2011, but they did see light at the end of the tunnel.


Entering a New Age of Materials and New Markets
By Jeff Anderson, Eminess Technologies
In October 2012, SEMI re-launches the Strategic Materials Conference to provide more focus and accessibility for everyone in the materials community.


Beyond 193i and Sub-22nm: Tackling the Cost and Technical Drivers
By Debra Vogler, Instant Insights Inc.
Economic realities and technological challenges abound as new transistor architectures, new materials, the introduction of extreme ultraviolet lithography (EUVL), 3D-ICs, and the 450mm transition all occur in parallel.


SOLARCON India 2012

Plastics Electronics Conference Announces Prestigious Conference Committee of Industry and Academic Leaders
PE2012 has announced a prestigious Conference Committee comprised of industry and academic leaders in the area of organic, printed, flexible and large area electronics.


Upgrading and Transformation: Escape from LED Structural Overcapacity Pressure
After a boon in 2010, the global LED manufacturing production in 2011 did not grow as expected. Capacity utilization reached a low due to the fast capacity expansion and slower market demand.


Docking and Mounting Generic Terminology Guidelines Now Available
The "SEMI Docking and Mounting Generic Terminology Guidelines" document is now available, from CAST.
