New for 2014 - Semiconductor Technology Symposium

The critical issues shaping the future of Moore’s Law and semiconductor design and manufacturing will be the focus of an expanded technical agenda at SEMICON West. Building on the successful TechXPOTs, the Semiconductor Technology Symposium will feature conference tracks and sessions in new, classroom-style environments with comfortable, guaranteed seating. It will feature conference tracks and sessions addressing the latest developments in 450mm, 3D IC, advanced processes and materials, lithography, metrology, packaging, and test.

The standing-room-only success of the SEMICON West TechXPOT programs has prompted the creation of the new Semiconductor Technology Symposium (STS). Beginning in 2014, popular programs on leading-edge chip manufacturing will now be held in a classroom setting with reserved seating adjacent to the show flow in the North Hall of Moscone Center. STS will offer technology trends, developments and new technology information in the areas of advanced materials and processing, lithography, metrology, 450mm, advanced packaging, 3DIC. Test Vision 2020, the leading semiconductor test conference focusing on ATE and high-volume manufacturing, will join the STS in the Moscone Center location. 

STS is a paid conference program with registration options by day or the entire program.

TechXPOT programs in the Moscone Center North and South Halls will continue focusing on special topics in semiconductor manufacturing, and adjacent and related microelectronics technologies. An additional new program, Science Park, will feature a dedicated stage and exhibition area featuring advanced research and development technology topics centered on universities, research consortia, and R&D tools and technologies. TechXPOT programs are free to attend by all registered SEMICON West attendees.

Key topic focus areas in 2014 include:

  • New device architectures
  • 450mm
  • Advanced microelectronic materials
  • Metrology and measurement
  • 3D IC    Contemporary and advanced packaging
  • Semiconductor test
  • MEMS
  • Plastic electronics     

Returning - Silicon Innovation Forum

Bringing together new and emerging companies with the semiconductor industry’s top strategic investors and technology partners, the Silicon Innovation Forum helps connect innovative companies with prospective investors and showcases the next generation of entrepreneurs in microelectronics. 

Following on last year's successful launch, the Silicon Innovation Forum will bring together new and emerging companies with the semiconductor industry’s top strategic investors and leading technology partners. This innovative forum will include a conference (open to all SEMICON West attendees) featuring a keynote presentation, panel discussion on the industry’s innovation pipeline, and a Pitch Zone, a dynamic session consisting of short presentations on exciting new business opportunities and technology ideas from a diverse collection of new and emerging companies. The SIF Innovation Showcase and Networking Reception is a private event immediately following the conference and will include one-on-one opportunities to meet with the industry’s leading strategic investors, venture capital companies, and other potential investment partners.

Participation is expected from strategic investors, venture capital companies, other investment firms, and more. The Silicon Innovation Forum Committee includes leading strategic investment groups in the industry:

  •  Applied Ventures 
  •  Dow Chemical Company 
  •  Intel Capital 
  •  Micron Ventures 
  •  Samsung Ventures 
  •  ST Ventures
  •  TEL Venture Capital

SIF Conference & Showcase includes:
