With an agenda built around the theme, Smart, Intuitive and Connected: Semiconductor Devices Transforming the World, SEMI’s Industry Strategy Symposium (ISS 2018), which takes place January 15-18, 2018 in Half Moon Bay, CA, brings together the semiconductor industry elite to explore strategy, discuss collaboration, examine threats, and expound upon the market opportunities empowered by today’s semiconductor technologies.
Recognizing that the semiconductor industry plays a pivotal role in the transformation of our world into a place where lifestyle and efficiency are optimized in ways never imagined, speakers at ISS 2018 will address such important topics as how custom chips for non-traditional applications add to the demand drivers for semiconductor devices and equipment, the impact of EUV on the semiconductor supply chain, the materials supplier perspective, and the many choices available to solve technology challenges.
Featured Panel: ISS CxO Panel: Nodes, Inter-nodes, and Real Nodes
A node is a node is a node could have once been considered a law of identity statement for semiconductor technology. Indeed, the term ‘node’ was invented to be a yardstick of accountability at its most basic level. On the one hand, it’s been distorted by marketing. On the other, Moore’s Law can’t keep up with the annual alarm clock set to the law that Christmas can’t be moved. This has led to internodes, as simple design revisions are no longer enough to have competitive products in the hotly contested holiday sales cycle. This panel brings together some of the world’s sharpest minds to untangle these issues and shed light on what the real nodes are.
