Yole Events


Semiconductor industry: it is imperative to innovate. Advanced packaging is the path forward…

May 18-20, 2021 | Online

Leading players must act fast and play on their strengths to innovate and compete. And advanced packaging could most certainly be a pivotal approach.

Advanced packaging has become essential for semiconductor innovation. Advanced packaging platforms allow this industry to explore new eras and innovate. And today, advanced packaging technologies are the key to bridge the gap between die and PCB.

In this dynamic context and encouraged by 7 consecutive years of successful symposiums that have attracted more than 200 participants on average, Yole and its partner NCAP (National Center for Advanced Packaging) are proud to announce this year again, the Symposium by Yole Développement and NCAP on Advanced Packaging Semiconductors – SYNAPS.

Early Bird Price : 120€ until Wednesday, May 5

Standard Price : 150€

As a digital event, SYNAPS offers a unique place in the world where leading companies can share their vision of the advanced packaging industry, evaluate the emerging platforms, and identify business opportunities.

SYNAPS, an unprecedented program.
SYNAPS’s aim is to deliver a comprehensive understanding of the status of the advanced packaging industry and help companies to be part of the ‘tomorrow’ industry.

SYNAPS is unique. Don’t miss it!

In 1957, Japan was finishing postwar reconstruction and starting a period of high economic growth. Petrochemical products were essential for industrial development. JSR Corporation (formerly Japan Synthetic Rubber Co., Ltd.) was established as a national policy concern to pioneer synthetic rubber production in Japan. We later applied our polymer technologies in the fine chemicals sector to produce semiconductor materials, display materials, and other products. JSR is currently taking up the challenge of materials innovation applicable in new fields, including the life sciences, environ­ment and energy that make use of the acquired technologies in the fine chemicals sector. These are under development as future JSR core businesses.
