Extended Supply Chain Forum

Connect with the people who enable your products. 

The Extended Supply Chain Forum connects systems integrators, IC design, and manufacturing communities and fosters exploration and discussion of strategic issues that impact the entire supply chain. At the forum, you will meet the suppliers of equipment, materials, and services used to manufacture advanced devices, discover new capabilities to improve the performance and reduce the cost of next-generation products, and give direct input to the people who will enable your future success.

If you are involved in technical or business leadership, you need the latest industry information. SEMICON West provides you with strategic insights from industry thought leaders to enable you to assess the landscape, identify opportunities, and develop strategic plans. Come to SEMICON West and connect with people in your community, discover what's new, and discuss what it means for your business.

Smart Manufacturing 
Keynote Stage, North Hall

Whether it’s called Industry 4.0, Industrial Internet, M2M or the digitization of production, the recent advances in low cost technologies for sensing, connecting, and analyzing masses of data will enable a next generation of disruptive improvement in even the highly sophisticated world of semiconductor and electronics systems manufacturing. This will mean new market opportunities for suppliers all along the value chain, and faster delivery of higher quality, more customized products for users at every level, from industrial and computing equipment and data networks to consumer products. But successful adoption of these new technologies of more data-driven, optimized manufacturing will require new approaches to integrate data from separate silos, and new collaboration through the supply chain on issues ranging from interoperability to IP protection.
