Each year, SEMI publicly recognizes and honors technological and industrial leadership through the SEMI Award North America program. 

The awards program was established in 1979 to recognize enabling technical contributions by individuals and teams to the microelectronics industry. The enabling technological contributions to the microelectronics industry can be as broad as Integrated Circuit Design, Design for Manufacturability (DFM), new mask manufacturing methods, new device manufacturing architecture and methods and the assembly and test of integrated circuits and microelectromechanical (MEMS) devices.

In 2009, SEMI announced its first significant change by expanding criteria to include outstanding achievements in developing new and emerging technologies expected to have significant future value to the semiconductor industry. This change in criteria broadens the scope of the SEMI Award to recognize technology developments including semiconductors, photovoltaic solar displays and solid state lighting.

10:30am to 12:40pm

With one IC manufacturer having announced it will delay using EUVL until 2021, and another major foundry pivoting away from 7nm, it seems reasonable to take a closer look at the state of advanced lithography and how recent news could impact deployment of different choices as the industry proceeds to 5nm, 3nm, and beyond. Included in the discussion will be the economics issues from a market standpoint. Also of interest is how well the industry can tackle stochastic barriers and address metrology, resist, and mask infrastructure challenges as EUVL is deployed. In the meantime, the industry will continue to need 193i extensions — probably well into 5nm

(Co-hosted by the Electronic Packaging Society (EPS) of IEEE ) The electronics industry is serving humanity in unprecedented ways, creating lifestyle, healthcare, transportation, and industrial efficiencies on a global scale. This pattern is not only set to continue, but to dramatically expand through the ascent of artificial intelligence across countless applications, and subsequent migration of big data and data analytics to the cloud. As such, the value-capture in the microelectronics industry is rapidly shifting from Moore’s Law Scaling to Heterogeneous Integration and SiP through Advanced Packaging focusing on systems and market applications. But, how will AI, Cloud and other  emerging applications drive innovation in technology and system integration? And how will technology advancements bring about further disruptions in the market?  

This session will address these burning questions and shed some light on how our ecosystem must evolve to navigate this vast disruptive market landscape, from high performance computing & data centers, autonomous driving, consumer mobility & 5G with particular focus on system hardware integration and products of the future.

10:30am to 12:30pm

There is a great sense of urgency in preparing the supply chain to enable HVM at advanced nodes. Industry standards on how defects are measured on various components and sub-components and on how these results are reported are severely lacking. This is especially alarming when several yield excursions are linked to a wide range of component- and subcomponent-induced defectivity. Furthermore, current component and subcomponent defect traceability lack the rigor for advanced technologies, particularly with regard to detectability, sensitivity, and methodology. In this session, efforts on baseline measurements for critical components, developed under the SEMI Semiconductor Components, Instruments, and Subsystems (SCIS) Technology Community, will be presented. This session will also provide some case studies on how these methods influence component selection utlimately reducing defectivity during manufacturing.

Since the launch of the commercial video game industry in the 1970’s, hardware and gaming have been inextricably linked. From driving the latest in processing and rendering capabilities to impacting the interactivity of a game through the design of its controllers, hardware and games have had a synergistic relationship that continually pushes each other’s boundaries. In this session, we explore key emerging areas within games—such as AI, VR, and wearables—that both expand the application of hardware to different (and often unexpected) contexts such as healthcare & training; and push its current capabilities.

Test Vision is today's premier 2-day workshop for semiconductor and system test experts, organized with a vision towards the future of test to discuss coming trends, innovations and requirements. It is a highly-anticipated gathering of providers and users of test IP and equipment, all converging to hear and engage with leaders in the field. The conference typically has 100+ participants and is held in conjunction with SEMICON West, assuring access to a wide range of expertise and experience. This year’s theme is “Ground Breaking Innovations in Test”

The growth in autonomous driving and the connected “everything” is driving the demand for semiconductors. This trend is putting more pressure on test costs as a result of higher coverage requirements or lower average selling prices. Test must become even smarter to address the increased quality demands, while at the same time remaining 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 those challenges, all the tools in the arsenal must be brought to bear; increasing test instrumentation integration, smarter test strategies, self-test, adaptive test, system level test, and more sophisticated test hardware.
