This year marks the 40th anniversary for SEMICON Japan, one of the most extensive international exhibitions of semiconductor equipment and materials. Each SEMI tradeshow has its own unique strength, often reflecting its location. Japan has one of the largest electronics manufacturing industries in the world and is home to several top chipmakers. The country’s automotive and industrial equipment sectors are also strong. It makes sense, therefore, that SEMICON Japan typically attracts large numbers of engineers and technologists interested in learning more about the latest product developments. Lam Research is pleased to support this premier event as a Gold Sponsor.
Among topics being discussed at this year’s event – including drivers such as smart healthcare, autonomous and connected cars, and developments in the Internet of Things (IoT) – will be updates on ever important advances in semiconductor device technologies. To continue device scaling, the industry is developing a number of novel processes, new materials, and breakthrough technologies. On the afternoon of Friday, December 16, Lam executive Mohsen Salek will join other prominent speakers at the show’s Manufacturing Innovation Forum to discuss these and other high-performance chip fabrication strategies. In his talk, “Manufacturing Variability Reduction,” Mohsen will review some of the ways that variability can be controlled with advanced process technologies and process control.
