Yole Développement and System Plus Consulting organise a Reverse Engineering & Costing Seminar in Taiwan. Dedicated to MEMS and LED areas, the seminar is made up of Yole Développement presentations on the related market area, System Plus Consulting tools presentations (Reverse Costing and Cost Simulation). On the afternoon, register for a one-to-one meeting with our team. See below the detailed agenda:

November 13, 2012

9.00 AM – Welcome breakfast (30 min)

9.30 AM - Status of the MEMS Industry: fueled by consumer applications, MEMS market keeps growing, while MEMS players acquisitions values are rocketing!
Jean-Christophe Eloy, President & CEO, Yole Développement

MEMS will continue to see steady, sustainable double digit growth for the next six years, with 20% compound average annual growth in units and 13% growth in revenues, to become a $21 billion market by 2017. We expect continued strong growth in motion sensing and microfluidics as those sectors will increasingly come to dominate the MEMS market totals, making up almost half of the overall market in 2017, with accelerometers, gyros, magnetometers and combos accounting for about 25% of the total, and microfluidics for 23%...
Almost all MEMS players had a growth in sales in 2011 compared to 2010. Companies involved in inertial sensors and microphones are growing the most. Every year brings new business in the MEMS landscape.
The presentation will provide the last market update from Yole Développement, the technology and manufacturing trends and the evolution of the industry.

10.00 AM - MEMS reverse costing
Michel Allain, General Manager, System Plus Consulting
A “Reverse Costing” report includes technological data and economical calculations. Usually based on the teardown of a sample, it provides detailed information on the process involved, the materials and dimensions. A process flow is extracted from these observations, completed with publicly available data, and simulated using a cost simulation tool. Multiple results are obtained, from cost per step to yield influence.
Several examples of reverse costing reports of L will be shown. The objective of this review is to get an overview on the state of the art in the design and manufacturing of various MEMS devices and to understand which choices are validated by the industry.

10.45 AM – Coffee Break (30 min)

11.15 AM - MEMS manufacturing cost simulation
Michel Allain, General Manager, System Plus Consulting

Due to their non-standard manufacturing process, the cost of MEMS devices can be difficult to estimate. Components such as accelerometers, pressure sensors, microphones or micromirrors involve very different process steps. We have developed a new version of our MEMS Manufacturing Cost Simulation Tool, more flexible and ready to evaluate the cost of any MEMS process or component. This new tool, already used by manufacturers as well as end users, offers the possibility to store steps and process flows in libraries thus reducing dramatically the duration of the cost evaluation.
This tool is ideal for strategic marketing executives, process managers and R&D engineers analyzing the economic feasibility of different MEMS manufacturing approaches, but also for MEMS equipment suppliers in order to know the operating cost of their equipment and to compare with their competitors.

12.00 AM – Lunch (1 hour)

From 1.00 PM – One to one meetings
During the afternoon, Yole Développement and System Plus Consulting are available for individual discussions. Feel free to ask us any specific questions dedicated to your own business challenges. To organize the agenda, please contact Mei Ling Tsai (meiling.tsai@yole.com.tw).

November 14, 2012

9.00 AM – Welcome breakfast (30 min)

9.30 AM - The LED industry is entering its third growth cycle: general lighting
Jean-Christophe Eloy, President & CEO, Yole Développement

Growth of the LED industry has come initially from the small display application and has been driven forward by the LCD display application. LED TV was expected to be the LED industry driver for 2011 but the reality was quite different… Lower adoption of LEDs in the TV market and the entry of several new players, mostly from Asia, created a climate of overcapacity, price pressure and strong competition. As a consequence, packaged LED volume was about 30% lower than expected and revenue shrank due to strong ASP pressure.
In 2012, most companies have moved to the new “El Dorado” of LED business: general lighting, which represents the next killer application for LEDs. But enabling massive adoption of the technology for such an application still requires a large decrease in the cost of LED-based products...
The presentation will detail main applications of LEDs and associated market metrics within the period 2008-2020, introducing: drivers & challenges, associated volume and market size, penetration rate of LEDs…

10.00 AM - LED reverse costing

A “Reverse Costing” report includes technological data and economical calculations. Usually based on the teardown of a sample, it provides detailed information on the process involved, the materials and dimensions.

Michel Allain, General Manager, System Plus Consulting

Due to their non-standard manufacturing process, the cost of LED devices can be difficult to estimate. We have developed a new version of our LED Manufacturing Cost Simulation Tool, more flexible and ready to evaluate the cost of any LED, including front-end and back-end. This new tool, already used by R&D centers as well as end users, offers the possibility to store steps and process flows in libraries thus reducing dramatically the duration of the cost evaluation.
This tool is ideal for strategic marketing executives, process managers and R&D engineers analyzing the economic feasibility of different LED manufacturing approaches. A demonstration of the tool will be performed.

12.00 AM – Lunch (1 hour)
