The Strategic Materials Conference (SMC 2015) will explore the topic of “Materials Enabling a Smart & Interconnected World.” We will examine the emerging trends in the semiconductor industry with focus on the increasing pervasiveness of the Internet across industries and the subsequent potential impact on our daily lives. This trend will drive the adoption of semiconductors into increasingly diverse environments & functions. While the corresponding new performance requirements and form factors pose a challenge to the entire value chain, systems OEMs, device manufacturers and materials suppliers, it will provide new opportunities to drive innovation and engineering, supply assurance, analytics and quality capabilities enabling the industry to deliver these solutions in a compelling, timely and cost-effective manner.
The comprehensive sessions will provide an overview of the new opportunities that are emerging from an increasingly interconnected world, taking a glimpse at the devices, integration schemes, materials and packaging that will be in high demand for the foreseeable future and beyond. The full spectrum of New Transistor Structures, Emerging Memory, MEMS, Sensors, Medical Devices, Optoelectronics, Advanced Interconnect Technology, TSV and Advanced Packaging will be explored and discussed this year at SMC 2015.
