Advanced Semiconductor Manufacturing Strategies in AI Era to Highlight ASMC 2020

Reading time ( words)

Covering topics from yield management to metrology in the era of artificial intelligence (AI), more than 100 industry experts will deliver 35 hours of technical presentations on the latest advanced semiconductor manufacturing strategies and methodologies at SEMI Advanced Semiconductor Manufacturing Conference (ASMC 2020), May 4−7, 2020, in Saratoga Springs, New York. Registration is now open.


Drawing an expected 400 attendees, ASMC 2020 will feature the panel discussion "Exascalers, Hyperscalers: Computing at the Edge—Different Modes, Different Nodes" with experts from industry leaders including Applied Materials, Binghamton University, Corning, IBM Global Think Labs, and Tercero Technologies.

Back for its fifth year, the Women in Semiconductors programMay 4 in conjunction with ASMC 2020will highlight the importance of workplace diversity as the global semiconductor industry works to grow its talent pipeline. Joanne Kamens of Addgene will keynote the event. Registration is complimentary for ASMC attendees.  

ASMC is the premier event for industry professionals to network and share insights into best practices for semiconductor manufacturing. The conference is co-chaired by Fred Bouchard of SpareTech and Armando Anaya of Northrop Grumman.

Beyond Scaling: An Electronics Resurgence Initiative

06/05/2017 | DARPA
The Department of Defense’s proposed FY 2018 budget includes a $75 million allocation for DARPA in support of a new, public-private “electronics resurgence” initiative. The initiative seeks to undergird a new era of electronics in which advances in performance will be catalyzed not just by continued component miniaturization but also by radically new microsystem materials, designs, and architectures.
