MILPITAS, Calif. ─ December 16, 2019 – Flexible hybrid electronics breakthroughs are driving the next wave of smart MEMS and sensing solutions for more personalized, portable electronics, setting the stage for the co-located Flexible Hybrid Electronics Conference and Exhibition (FLEX) and MEMS & Sensors Technical Congress (MSTC) Feb. 24-27, 2020. Co-sponsored by SEMI FlexTech and SEMI MEMS & Sensors Industry Group, FLEX and MSTC will gather more than 100 global experts for market and technical presentations, tech courses, and more than 50 exhibit opportunities for connecting with industry visionaries at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel in San Jose, Calif. Registration is now open.

“Today’s pervasiveness of MEMS and sensors have given us an industrial nervous system where AI meets everything – on the person, on the farm, at sea, in the car, and in the factory,” said Dave Anderson, president of SEMI Americas and host of the conferences. “FLEX and MSTC will offer insights into how the enormous amounts of unstructured data collected by these field monitors will lead to groundbreaking applications that transform the way we work and live.”


Themed See the Future with 20/20 Vision, the FLEX 2020 will highlight cutting-edge flexible and printed electronics applications that deepen interactions between users and their surroundings to improve their daily lives. FLEX 2020 will showcase flexible hybrid and printed electronic products, equipment, processes and materials, and the applications they enable.

Themed Technologies Driving the Next Wave of Smart MEMS & Sensing Solutions, MSTC 2020 will spotlight MEMS and sensors advances and market opportunities stemming from artificial intelligence (AI), augmented reality (AR), machine learning, 5G mobile networks and blockchain.

Keynotes during the two events will highlight novel integration and market opportunities for flexible hybrid electronics (FHE), MEMS and sensors as the industry innovates to meet consumer demand for more user-centric solutions.

FLEX 2020 will also feature the annual FLEXI Awards honoring organizations and individuals for innovation and commercialization, research and development, and education leadership, as well as the popular university student poster session highlighting projects related to flexible electronics or MEMS and sensors.

The co-located FLEX and MSTC events will be the second of eight conferences comprising SEMI’s second annual Technology Leadership Series of the Americas. Aligned from coast to coast throughout 2020, the series is designed to foster critical discussions on the short- and long-term influences and opportunities in the $2 trillion global electronics industry.
