ASMC 2019 Highlights Latest Advanced Manufacturing Strategies

SARATOGA SPRINGS, New York — May 6, 2019 — Celebrating its 30th anniversary, the SEMI Advanced Semiconductor Manufacturing Conference (ASMC 2019) kicks off today with more than 300 industry experts and executives delivering more than 30 hours of technical presentations on the latest advanced manufacturing strategies and methodologies. May 6-9, 2019, in Saratoga Springs, New York, ASMC 2019 is the leading international technical conference for improving the collective manufacturing expertise of the semiconductor industry. ASMC 2019 registration remains open.

ASMC 2019 BannerCutting-edge technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI), Internet of Things (IoT), 5G and machine learning are dramatically increasing demands on semiconductor manufacturing. Device makers, equipment and materials suppliers, and academics must respond by collaborating to develop new solutions. Technical presentations at ASMC highlight industry innovations with specific results and are published by IEEE, with select manuscripts republished in the ASMC Special Section of IEEE Transactions on Semiconductor Manufacturing. 

Part of the SEMI Technology Leadership Series of the Americas, ASMC 2019 features a panel discussion titled Time to Yield vs. Time to Productivity: What Matters Most in the Age of More than Moore? with experts from Applied Materials, Axcelis, GLOBALFOUNDRIES, SkyWater Technology and TechSearch International.
