SEMI Americas

SEMI exists to advance member interests, to help them grow profitably, and to help them discover new markets and opportunities across the micro- and nano-electronics industries. There are myriad ways to engage and advance the industry through SEMI. You are invited to join and work with us in achieving our future together.  Learn more about SEMI and SEMI Americas from the links on this page.

Technology Leadership Series of the Americas is organized by SEMI Americas to connect more than 2,100 member companies and 1.3 million professionals worldwide to advance the technology and business of electronics manufacturing. The pinnacle of the series, SEMICON West, is celebrating its 48th year as the flagship event for the semiconductor industry. 

More than 2,100 market-related businesses have teamed with SEMI to help structure content for the Technology Leadership Series of the Americas. In addition, key interest groups have rallied with SEMI in the past 24 months to multiply interactions with the supply chain. In turn, these exchanges are calculated to increase the members’ respective technical ROIs. Technology communities include the Fab Owners Alliance (FOA), FlexTech, MEMS & Sensors Industry Group (MSIG), Electronic System Design Alliance (ESDA), as well as global partner associations such as IEEE and SAE International, which leads technical learning for the mobility industry. 

Aligned from coast to coast, across a 12-month span, the series is designed to foster the most critical discussions for connecting both the short-term and long-term influences impacting the $2-trillion worth of emerging markets. The series aims to remove guesswork about which of the world’s rapidly rising number of conferences provides the highest ROI for the senior executive, engineer-scientist and sales representative.

The 2019 Technology Leadership Series of the Americas select conferences are:

  • Industry Strategy Symposium, ISS —Kicks off the new year with an analysis of new and emerging demand drivers for new architectures, new logic and memory, new streams of investment and how to advance their arrivals and ensure longevities that enable the next industrial revolution.

  • FLEX and MEMS & Sensors Technical Congress, FLEX/MSTC —The co-located events provides the most comprehensive technical conference as FLEX focuses on the design and manufacture of flexible electronics, including sensors, IC integration, and substrates, while MSTC focuses on the technology behind the trends in MEMS and sensors for autonomous mobility in mobile devices, IOT, drones, and autonomous transportations. 

  • Advanced Semiconductor Manufacturing Conference, ASMC —Improves the industry’s advanced manufacturing strategies and methodologies through a combined sharing of highlights and insights by device makers, equipment and materials suppliers, and academics. Women in Semiconductors will hold their (third) annual workshop.

  • Strategic Materials ConferenceSMC —Shares the latest developments from around the world in strategic materials that will be vital for new markets, system creation, heterogeneous integration, and packaging.

  • MEMS & Sensors Executive Congress, MSEC —Presents how the next generations of MEMS and sensors will be designed and produced to meet on-going growth for emerging markets beyond the historic microelectronics customer base.

  • International Technology Partners Conference, ITPC —Advances productive trans-pacific relationships to help avoid threatened supply chain prosperity, leveraging thought-leadership and relationship-building programs for executive-level engagement.  

At the peak of the collaborative series, SEMICON West 2019 provides renowned global presenters and hands-on demos, at both strategic and technical levels, for up-to-minute predictions and breakthroughs on upcoming trends and enablers. Based on direction from SEMI’s members, the five vertical application areas of AI and Data, Smart Transportation, MedTech, Smart Manufacturing and Industrial Automation, plus Workforce Development, will be featured at the semiconductor industry’s flagship event.
