Semiconductor is Definitely NOT Business as Usual!

Semiconductor is Definitely NOT Business as Usual!
by Daniel Nenni on 07-05-2016 at 12:00 pm

 Next week is SEMICON West where more than 26,000 of my compatriots will meet to discuss the future of the all-important semiconductor industry. How important is the semiconductor industry you ask? Well, your life literally depends on it, absolutely. Scott Jones and I will be covering the event live for SemiWiki so stay tuned. If you will also be there it would be a pleasure to meet you, drinks are on me.

The most interesting thing to me this year is the global business outlook where the industry experts present their findings to the world knowing full well that they will be held accountable for what they say in this life or the next:

The 46[SUP]th[/SUP] annual SEMICON West has over 700 exhibitors, connection to over 26,000 professionals from across the entire electronics supply chain, and 250 total hours of programming and events presented by industry leaders. No other event in North America connects you to:

  • Innovation – What’s new and what’s next in microelectronics
  • Opportunity – Networking, customer/supplier engagement, partnerships
  • Technology – Products, solutions, and services for microelectronics manufacturing
  • Information – Ideas, trend, forecasts, solutions

$100B in consolidation. Smart manufacturing. Shrinking development cycles. Everything is changing. And that’s why SEMICON West is a must-go in today’s rapidly diversifying marketplace.

SEMICON West has been retooled to keep pace with the industry’s realignment. It’s built around disruptive trends driving the market, and it’s been expanded to include all of the resources you need to survive and thrive. We’ve deepened our reach across the full electronics manufacturing supply chain to connect you with more key players — including major industry leaders like Cisco, Samsung, Intel, Audi, Micron, and more. New players, demand generators, systems integrators, and emerging industry segments — all connecting in one place.
