Media Hub Rendering

SEMICON West 2023 is taking aim at Building a Path Forward with a reimagined exhibition and conference as industry experts and visionaries gather July 11-13 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco. The event focuses on key challenges affecting the global microelectronics industry which include Supply Chain Disruptions, Climate Change, and Talent Shortages, all necessary to enable a $1T industry.

This year’s SEMICON West is host to several new features that span keynote and conference programming, networking opportunities, and even dining options. Many of our 3D InCites community will be there to connect with the entire extended electronics design and manufacturing supply chain. 3D InCites and SEMI are co-hosting the very first SemiSisters Reception, celebrating all the women who work in the semiconductor industry. Join us from 4-5pm on Tuesday, in the Wine and Beer Garden. Thanks to Edwards for sponsoring this event.

SEMICON West 2023
The 3D InCites Podcast Station is adjacent to the Best Of West Stage, across from the CEO Summit Stage.

As the official podcast of SEMICON West 2023, Francoise will be onsite recording her “Are You Listening” series, interviewing our member companies and other select speakers from around the industry. Podcast episodes are recorded at the Media Hub, located in the North Hall, by the Best of the West Theater and the Keynote Stage (Figure 1). Please reach out to Francoise directly if you would like to sponsor an episode.

If you missed the SEMICON West Preview interviews with Joe Stockumnas and Tom Sonderman, SkyWater, you can listen to them here.

Siemens Industry Inc

  • Booth: 1544

OEMs and Semiconductor Equipment manufacturers are facing tremendous challenges, because electrical devices enter the market within very short intervals of time. A separate line usually has to be built for each product and then dismantled again after short production cycles. Semiconductor Equipment manufacturers not only need to be able to deliver their new machines in a very short period of time, they also have to be able to quickly adapt them to short-term changes. The commissioning phase of machines and lines as well as changing from manual to automated production both offer the potential to save a significant amount of time, and to meet challenging time constraints of electronics companies. Siemens provides an ideal range of automation and digitalization solutions that can be used to create a digital twin of the machine. It helps to develop new machines and lines faster and more flexibly.
