SEMICON 2011 San Francisco, California July 12-14, 2011

Semicon West 2011 is an exhibit and event show being held July 12-14, 2011 in San Francisco, California.  The event being held at the Moscone Center features 15,000 exhibitors allowing visitors the opportunity to view the latest and greatest technologies involved in semiconductors, printed and flexible electronics, lighting and solar power. The Global Society for Contamination Control (GSFCC) will be one of those featured exhibitors, located at the North Hall of Moscone Center at booth N4. Semicon has been known in the past to be a relatively expensive event to attend, but Semicon West 2011 will feature 140 speakers with around 50 hours of free speaking.  One of these events those in the industry are excited about is the 450mm Wafer Transition Forum.

This forum will host Paolo Gargini, the chairman of International Technology Roadmap for Semiconductors (ITRS), along with many others to discuss the industry-wide discussion about transitioning to a larger 450mm wafer.  The transition to a larger wafer is needed to follow Moore’s Law.  For those that are not familiar with Moore’s law a simple explanation of is that for every two years that pass, the number of transistors that can be inexpensively placed on an integrated circuit doubles.  The 450mm Wafer Transition Forum will be discussing all the information currently in the industry that pertains to the needs, processing, and the challenges involved with the 450mm wafer transition roadmap.

The 450mm Wafer Transition Forum is just one of many interesting events at Semicon West 2011 that will be discussing or revealing the new ideas, technologies, and directions of the industry.  For more information on Semicon West 2011 click here, and click here for the full list events.
