2018 Programs Catalog

Blockchain Moscone North, Room 22 Tuesday, July 10
10:30am to 12:30pm

Technical Co-Sponsors: IEEE Blockchain Initiative and IEEE Santa Clara Valley Section                                                                                   

Blockchain technology is anticipated to become one of the major disruptive technologies in the 21st century. According to the World Economic Forum, blockchain is expected to account for 10% of world GDP by 2025. Blockchain is the backbone of bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. Currently, the technology is going through a rapid adoption phase in the fintech industry and has an immense potential to disruptively transform IoT, energy, supply chain, manufacturing, healthcare, government, and more. This session will focus on state-of-the-art blockchain development platforms and emerging industrial applications.

Industry Outlook San Francisco Marriott Marquis Monday, July 09
1:00pm to 5:00pm

The semiconductor industry is at the cusp of what is widely expected to be a rapid, multi-year expansion cycle powered by new end-markets and growth opportunities in revolutionary technology segments such as Artificial Intelligence, Blockchain, Machine Learning, and Autonomous Vehicles.

The SEMI Market Symposium provides a midyear update of trends and drivers shaping these markets for the next three to five years. Geopolitical implications, the slowing of Moore’s Law, and increasing connectivity provide additional context to assess the resulting business opportunities and challenges facing the semiconductor supply chain.

Who should attend:

  • Corporate Executives
  • Startup Founders
  • Venture Capitalists
  • Buy Side and Sell Side Analysts
  • Consulting and Investor Relations Representatives
  • Business Development, Sales & Marketing Professionals

Session Moderators:

  • Paul Semenza, Industry Research and Statistics Consultant, SEMI
  • Clark Tseng, Director, Industry and Statistics Consultant, SEMI

Test Moscone North, Room 20 Wednesday, July 11
8:00am to 3:00pm

The growth in autonomous driving and "everything connected" is spurring  demand for semiconductors. Due to both higher coverage requirements and lower average selling prices the trend is putting greater pressure on test costs. Test must become smarter to address increased quality demands, while at the same time remain economical.

Greater computational power coupled with increased analog and sensor content will force changes in test strategies due to more advanced packaging, heterogeneous integration, higher performance analog, and increasing RF complexity. To address these challenges, all tools in the arsenal must be brought to bear, including increasing test instrumentation integration, smarter test strategies, self-test, adaptive test, system-level test, and more sophisticated test hardware.

At Test Vision 2020, we’ll ask: What can we do differently to provide testing cost effectively with dppm rates approaching zero? What R&D tools are needed for today’s and tomorrow’s devices? What will test cell (ATE, fixtures, handlers or probers, and probe cards) look like beyond 2018? How can test be better integrated into the manufacturing process?
