MILPITAS, Calif. ─ February 24, 2020 – The latest advances in flexible and printed electronics take the spotlight at the co-located Flexible Hybrid Electronics Conference and Exhibition (FLEX) and MEMS & Sensors Technical Congress (MSTC) opening today. FLEX and MSTC 2020 feature keynotes, panels, technical sessions, deep-dive tech talks, networking opportunities and nearly 50 exhibitors with more than 400 attendees. See the full agenda for t he four-day events are at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel in San Jose, California.
Co-sponsored by SEMI FlexTech and SEMI MEMS & Sensors Industry Group (MSIG), FLEX Sees the Future with 20/20 Vision with cutting-edge flexible and printed electronics applications that deepen interactions between users and their surroundings. The event showcases flexible hybrid and printed electronic products, equipment, processes, materials and applications.
MSTC explores Technologies Driving the Next Wave of Smart MEMS & Sensing Solutions through advances in MEMS and sensors, and highlights market opportunities spurred by artificial intelligence (AI), augmented reality (AR), machine learning (ML), 5G mobile networks and blockchain.
Ajit Manocha, SEMI president and CEO, kicks off the events with his presentation Sensors, MEMS and FHE: Going Beyond Smart to Realize Imagination.
