Strategic Materials Conference—SMC 2014
This year’s theme, Materials Matter—Enabling the Future of IC Fabrication and Packaging, will take a broad look at what is driving the demand for new materials, and how material suppliers are being impacted by the value chain they serve.
The semiconductor industry has reached a major inflection point: no longer is device scaling and performance driven solely by reductions in feature size. Higher device performance using less power requires the incorporation of many new materials to maintain the industry’s cadence. These material needs to span across the spectrum from fabricating 3D transistor structures, to accelerating interconnect speeds, to packaging the devices in the appropriate form factors for use in phones, tablets and devices encompassing the internet of things. SMC will discuss market opportunities and examine how to win in this “Age of Materials”.
Tuesday and Wednesday
SMC has provided valuable information and networking opportunities to materials and electronics industry professionals since 1995. SMC 2014 builds on that legacy, expanding the reach and focus of the conference to examine advanced electronics materials for the semiconductor and adjacent industries.
