EUROPE R&D


The versatility of these MEMS devices gives birth to an ever- increasing number of different applications. This, in turn, fuels a technology differentiation process within the MEMS world. Accordingly, the presentations at the congress cover topics as diverse as MEMS microphones (Ulrich Krumbein, Infineon), micro optical systems (Basaam Saandany, Si-Ware Systems) or bio-medical sensors (Frederic Breussin, Yole Développement). The presenters’ interest also lies with high-volume MEMS production, 3D TSVs, testing and packaging with special focus on rough automotive application environments.


SEMICON Europa also hosts the popular Fab Manager Forum where real-world managers exchange experiences and views on relevant issues in this industry including the “Night of Knowledge” Topics include an ITRS roadmap update, and a selection of current industry issues followed by a networking reception.


In addition to all these “classic” semiconductor topics, the event co-locates with another conference focusing on one of the most promising relatives to the traditional semiconductor technology: Organic electronics, aka Plastic Electronics.


The PE 2013 is one of the most prestigious meetings of this aspirant industry branch. After many years of research this technology is now clearly approaching the stadium of commercialization. Hence, manufacturability is the current buzzword throughout this young industry.


Topics which are creating interest are OLEDs for display and lighting applications, flexible PV devices as well as organic and hybrid-based integrated smart systems. The conference attracts high-profile speakers from companies such as Nokia, Plastic Logic, Philips Lighting and Panasonic, to name just a few.
