SEMI Networking Day Italy — Focus on MEMS
Unique SEMI Networking Day in Italy offers MEMS perspectives on Markets, Applications, Process, Packaging and Assembly.
The latest Yole Développement market research reports that MEMS reached US$ 10 billion in 2011, an increase of 17 percent. The industry is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 13 percent over the next few years to reach $20 billion by 2017. To discuss the growing MEMS opportunities and markets, leading European MEMS stakeholders will gather in Milano on September 20 2012 for the 3rd annual SEMI Networking Day Italy initiative.
Supported and hosted by Microcontrol Electronic, the event features a unique agenda combining market overview presentations, technical presentations and numerous networking opportunities— and will gather attendees from all over Europe interested in growing MEMS technologies. The Networking Day Italy will feature a keynote entitled “The Future of MEMS,” by Paolo Ferrari, MEMS process director, who will share STMicroelectronics’ vision. Yole Développement, the well-known market and forecast company based in Lyon (France) will review with Laurent Robin “The Growth of the MEMS Market.” Dave Thomas, marketing director of SPTS will address the “Silicon Etch Solutions for MEMS Device Fabrication and Advanced Packaging Technologies.” Latest developments in lamination technologies will be presented by Andrea Carzaniga and Adriano Cairella from Microcontrol Electronic. Finally, Damien Saint Patrice from CEA-LETI will cover the “Thin Film Packaging of MEMS.”
Two “Speed Networking” sessions will allow SEMI members and Italian companies to introduce themselves and promote their technologies or services in front of the audience and network with other attendees.
The Networking Day Italy is a SEMI initiative to support the companies involved in semiconductors and related emerging markets in Europe. The SEMI Europe president, Heinz Kundert, and his staff will be present to facilitate the program and interact with all attendees.
The event and “Speed Networking” are free of charge but registration is required. Registration and more information such as agenda and venue are available online. Speed Networking slots are limited, with a “first-booked first-served” policy.
The SEMI Networking Day Italy, launched by the SEMI Europe Grenoble Office, is sponsored by Ubotic, STMicroelectronics and Yole Développement. I-Micronews and 3D Packaging are media partners of the event.
