CEO of VLSI Research to give State of the Semiconductor Industry address at The ConFab 2013

Solid State Technology is thrilled to announce that Dan Hutcheson, CEO of VLSI Research, will be addressing the state of the semiconductor industry at The ConFab 2013. Hutcheson is a well-known visionary, helping companies make business out of technology for over thirty years and is best known for his many predictions of strategic industry infrastructure shifts.

“After two down years, the semiconductor industry is finally returning to returning to a growth mode. This should come as no surprise, because the bottom actually came early in 2012,” said Hutcheson, in his abstract. “But it was the downward slope of 2011 that held the yearly growth figures down, as the industry climbed out of the downturn in 2012. So far, 2013 is looking stronger than 2012 and VLSI research expects this to continue.”

Hutcheson’s presentation will examine the reasons why – with the most up-to-date data, drivers, and trends – covering the silicon supply chain from electronics through ICs and deep into manufacturing.

Hutcheson is a senior member of the IEEE and a recipient of SEMI’s Bob Graham Award for outstanding contributions in marketing. He has authored numerous publications including two invited articles for Scientific American. His pro bono work has included serving as an advisor on innovation to the White House Council of Economic Advisors in the Clinton Administration, teaching invited courses on Manufacturing Economics and The Economics of the Internet at Stanford University, and serving on the Board of Advisors to the Extension School at UC Berkeley.
