MEMS track at SEMICON Europa covers applications and manufacturing

(September 24, 2010) — SEMICON Europa will take place October 19-21 in Dresden, Germany. The SEMI Europe team is closely working with their supporting committees and the manufacturing and R&D organizations to tailor the SEMICON Europa programs. Program development is matched to the specific needs of the European semiconductor industry in the current environment.

  • 12 Technology conferences
  • 13 Free technology and standardization session
  • 4 Executive and networking events
  • 12 Courses


The MEMS/MST track will focus on MEMS in end-market applications, manufacturing and design techniques, and keynotes from industry leaders such as Analog Devices, STMicroelectronics, and Bosch.

The International MEMS/MST Industry Forum theme for 2010 is "MEMS Goes Everywhere!" The forum presenters ask (and answer) these questions: How do you successfully manage an environment with distributed operations, while best system know-how and short time-to-revenue cycles are essential? Which control systems and methodologies for low-cost test, steep learning curves, and quality assurance need to be in place? How do you develop, manufacture, and cost-efficiently integrate complex heterogeneous systems? What are the most recent developments in MEMS-enabled products: where lay the challenges and opportunities? What are most interesting new applications and use-cases, driving new technologies and providing for technology line utilization?

The MEMS exhibitor presentations will cover photoresist for MEMS and wafer-level package (WLP) manufacture, as well as chip/package co-design in changing IDM times.

MEMS keynotes include "Monolithic to Multi Chip: Smart Partitioning Adds Customer Value," presented by Rob O’Reilly, Senior Technical Staff, MEMS Sensor and Technology Group, Analog Devices; "Trends for Automotive Micromechanical Sensors," a talk by Jiri Marek, Senior Vice President Engineering Sensors, Bosch; "Revolution and Evolution of Consumer MEMS Applications," from Leopold Beer, Director Marketing, Bosch Sensortec; and a presentation from Benedetto Vigna, General Manager MEMS Business Unit, STMicroelectronics.
