450mm Programs at West
Silicon Wafers – Future Standardization to Enable the
The transition to 450mm manufacturing is accompanied by the development of various standards aimed at achieving cost, efficiency and technology improvements. Some standards are a product of the consensus-based SEMI International Standards program, which has produced over 15 essential 450mm-specific standards to-date. Additionally, consortia, customers and suppliers organize complementary efforts to align common approaches to transition solutions. Join this program to understand important developments in wafer specifications and new facilities-related considerations for 450mm manufacturing. Materials will be presented by authoritative customers, including Samsung, TSMC, IBM, Intel as well as other expert speakers.
450mm Manufacturing EHS Forum
Among the objective of the 450mm wafer size transition is maintaining or improving the environmental health and safety performance of semiconductor fabrication facilities. This forum reviews key EHS considerations and direction with updates from customer consortia, facilities planning coordination bodies and leading semiconductor equipment and materials providers.
The challenges and opportunities from an EHS perspective will be explored to prepare participants for the transition.

SEMI International 450mm Standards
Companies using standards can decrease manufacturing costs, increase reliability and productivity, and access global markets. In addition, standards increase industry efficiency by reducing/eliminating duplication of efforts, defining new markets, and promoting competition by lowering barriers to entry.
Meet with the SEMI Team at SEMICON West to explore how the SEMI 450mm standards can help your organization.
