Applied Sponsors SEMICON Europa/Productronica Event

Hosts Symposium Focused on European Manufacturing Efficiency

By Nanochip Staff

When Semicon Europa opens in Munich, Germany, (November 14-17) it will, for the first time ever, be co-located with the long-standing European electronics show, productronica, creating a major single event for European electronics manufacturing and attracting thousands of visitors from across the electronic supply chain. 

According to SEMI, the event attracts attendees from all segments of the European microelectronics industry.  These include materials, semiconductor front-end and back-end manufacturing, advanced packaging, MEMS/sensors, power and flexible electronics; and they address a broad range of traditional and emerging applications.  The program is designed to encourage attendees to meet, learn about, and address industry-shaping trends through tutorial programs, lectures, exhibits and networking sessions.

Applied Materials is once again a corporate sponsor of the Semicon Europa event.  The company also will also host a day-long Technical Symposium for Applied business partners, technologists and industry experts on Thursday, November 16, at the Novotel Hotel, adjacent to the Muenchen Messe.  Part of the ongoing Applied Materials Technical Symposium Series, this invitation-only event is designed to explore inflections driving the European semiconductor market, including More-than-Moore trends.  Opportunities and challenges affecting semiconductor companies manufacturing devices for automotive, IoT, power and other applications will be discussed.

James Robson, Applied’s Germany-based vice president and general manager, said the Symposium will include a keynote address by Ajit Manocha, president and CEO of SEMI; an address by Leti chief scientist Thomas Ernst; and presentations and case studies by executives from Bosch, Globalfoundries, and NXP.  Applied speakers will address a range of issues including advanced new materials engineering, packaging, legacy equipment trends and fab lifecycle management.

“European manufacturers are innovating in technologies to address a broader range of markets and applications than ever before, including telecom, automotive, IoT and medical technology, and are continuing to invest aggressively to advance growth in these markets.  So we are committed to support them with information sharing events like this Symposium,” Robson said.
