MILPITAS, Calif. — November 3, 2021 — SEMICON West, North America’s premier microelectronics exhibition and conference that unites players across the entire electronics manufacturing and design supply chain, and FLEX Conference, the annual event focused on flexible hybrid and printed electronics innovations, will co-locate at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, July 11-14, 2022. Registration for both events will open next spring.
“Flexible hybrid electronics (FHE) technologies are key drivers of digital transformation as they advance to enable smart transportation, buildings and infrastructure, equipment sensorization, and wearable and conformable medical devices,” said Dr. Melissa Grupen-Shemansky, SEMI CTO and vice president of SEMI Technology Communities. “Next year’s co-location of SEMICON West 2022 and FLEX Conference 2022 will gather microelectronics and FHE leaders to explore new innovation opportunities across both industries as they work together to advance system-level products through critical technologies such as heterogeneous integration.”
“With collaboration the fuel of microelectronics innovation, the co-location of SEMICON West 2022 and FLEX Conference 2022 promises to uncover new ways for semiconductor and FHE leaders to accelerate global digitization in ways that continue to improve how we work and live,” said David Anderson, president of SEMI Americas.
FLEX Conference, in its 20th year, showcases innovations emerging from public-private partnerships formed by SEMI Technology Communities SEMI-FlexTech, SEMI-NBMC (Nano-Bio Materials Consortium) and SEMI-NextFlex. At FLEX Conference 2022, keynotes, panels discussions, technical sessions, and product-based TechTALKS will highlight the latest advances in flexible and printed electronics, including applications that deepen interactions between users and their surroundings. The event will focus on equipment, processes, materials and applications driving the latest technology breakthroughs and how they help shape business strategy.
The Design Automation Conference (DAC), the largest meeting in the electronic design automation (EDA) industry, will also co-locate with SEMICON West 2022. Registration will open in the spring of 2022.
