Connect to Applications, 5G Moscone North, TechXPOT North Thursday, July 13
10:30am to 12:30pm

Growing demand for high-bandwidth transmission of ever-increasing amounts of data is driving a new generation of 5G communications technologies requiring ultra-dense, high-frequency networks. This development is bringing new challenges and opportunities for volume semiconductor technology in areas ranging across RF, compound semiconductors, and photonic integrated circuits. At the same time, processing all that data in the cloud at high speed and low power brings new demands for another set of emerging technologies, including new design approaches for accelerated artificial intelligence processors, new memory technologies, and silicon photonics connections. At this session, industry leaders will provide a high-level look at the impending disruptions that will soon come across the supply chain.

Hosted by the SEMI Americas Advanced Packaging Committee

Following up on our previous session, we will dig into the key packaging technologies enabling the advanced electronic systems that we have seen come to the market recently. Wafer-level packaging (WLP), 2.5D (interposer), embedded substrates, and, perhaps most comprehensively, SiP (System-in-Package) have been true inflections in enabling many of these new systems. We will also delve into the challenges in current technologies and opportunities for extending and improving them.

10:30am to 12:30pm

Hosted by the Semiconductor Components, Instruments & Subsystems (SCIS) Special Interest Group

As the industry prepares for sub-10nm, HVM (high-volume manufacturing), there is increasing acknowledgement that the defects introduced by process-critical OEM components are affecting final wafer quality, resulting in lower yields and higher manufacturing costs. It’s a major concern that is impacting the entire semiconductor manufacturing supply chain. As such, it is with great urgency that pre-competitive collaboration among key industry stakeholders needs to take place — and it needs to happen now. This session will explore perspectives from both suppliers and end-users on the critical role that components play in future semiconductor industry roadmaps. Speakers will offer insight on supply chain challenges, from a technology standpoint, as well as their vision on what needs to occur to enable HVM at advanced process nodes.

From IoT to industrial controls, embedded systems are the key to optimizing performance and power. In fact, embedded systems (A combination of computer hardware, software and sometimes additional mechanical parts.) are the driving force behind IoT. Most electronic devices, our cell phones, microwaves, network routers, automobiles, and industrial controls are controlled by embedded software.  Each of these embedded systems is unique and highly customized to the specific application.

This course will provide practical techniques and guidelines for developing embedded system software.  We will overview the basic components of embedded and real-time systems, discuss the basics of interacting with and controlling peripherals,  the different types of embedded software architectures, how to use a real-time operating system and basic scheduling algorithms, examples of optimizing embedded software for performance, memory, and power, what goes into developing safety critical embedded systems, a brief overview of multicore embedded systems, and some examples of how to use embedded system development tools. 

We will also look at how embedded systems are driving the Internet of Things (IoT) and show some examples of connectivity and applications for IoT.  We will offer live demonstrations of IoT embedded systems.

As leading-edge devices move into 10nm and sub-10nm nodes, the challenge of maintaining a supply chain that can provide in-spec and in-ship-to-control materials increases dramatically. In

this session, technology and thought leaders from device, materials, and metrology companies will dig into tough questions and provide some clarity and guidance in order for the industry to realize the next generation of devices.

  • What new metrology capabilities and ranges are needed?
  • Considering that electronic materials may become an increasingly smaller share of revenues, what changes are needed to the incoming raw material supply?
  • How do we identify “rogue” impurities not currently measured or reported?
  • Are there industry-standardized processes to be improved or created?
  • When the best metrology tool is the device, can customers help identify improvement opportunities?

Test San Francisco Marriott Marquis Wednesday, July 12
8:00am to 5:00pm

Test Vision 2020 is today's premier workshop for semiconductor and system test experts with a vision towards the future of test. It is a highly anticipated gathering of providers and users of test IP and equipment, all converging to engage with leaders in the field and discuss coming trends and requirements. The conference typically has hundreds of participants and is held in conjunction with SEMICON West, assuring access to a wide range of expertise and experience.

This year’s workshop theme is Fast-Track to a Smarter Test. The growth in autonomous driving and everything connected is increasing demand for automotive semiconductors and putting more pressure on test costs due to higher coverage requirements. Test must become smarter to address the increased quality demands, while at the same time remaining economical. Greater computational power coupled with increased analog and sensor content will force changes in test strategies due to more advanced packaging, heterogeneous integration, higher-performance analog, and increasing RF frequencies. To address these challenges, every tool in the arsenal must be brought to bear: increasing instrumentation integration, smarter strategies, self-test, adaptive test, system-level test, as well as more sophisticated test hardware.

With 7nm phasing into production by the end of 2017 — after many delays — EUVL may not emerge as the hoped for savior. While some players are using EUVL at 10nm, several infrastructure issues remain unresolved. Aside from the actual technical solutions that still need to be perfected, economics will ultimately decide adoption rates. This session will discuss the economics and the road ahead as the industry places its bets on lithography moving from 7nm to 5nm.
