Critical trends and developments in the technologies, methodologies, and applications challenges in semiconductor test will be presented at the 6th annual IEEE Test Vision 2020 Workshop held in conjunction with SEMICON West 2013, on July 10-11 at the San Francisco Marriot Marquis Hotel. The one and one-half day workshop will feature speakers from Flextronics, Broadcom, Qualcomm, Texas Instruments, AMD, ON Semiconductor, Mentor Graphics, Micron, along with those from key semiconductor test industry suppliers. Organized by SEMI and sponsored by the IEEE Instrumentation and Measurement Society, Test Vision 2020 is a two-time winner of the ATE Test Technology Technical Council’s “Most Successful Event” Award. Registration for Test Vision 2020 is now open at www.testvision2020.com, and includes free admission to SEMICON West.
Test Vision 2020’s purpose is to facilitate learning, forecasting and debate on the future of semiconductor test and serves as a valuable platform where leading foundries, IDMs and fabless companies discuss their critical test requirements with leading test equipment and solution providers. This year’s program will feature panel discussions and leading industry experts that focus on the following key questions:
- How can we achieve faster time to market with lower product costs?
- What are the Test challenges in emerging technologies?
- How much Test is enough?
- What are the possible paths to economical high-speed test?
- What are the next big innovations in Semiconductor Test?
- What will be the new skills and competencies needed by future test engineers?
The keynote speaker for Test Vision 2020 will be Dr. Erik Volkerink, chief technology officer at leading end-to-end supply chain powerhouse, Flextronics. He will present on the topic, “Product Foundry: Next Paradigm in Product Design and Engineering.” Featured speaker will be Sri Jandhyala, Strategic Marketing Director for ON Semiconductor, whose presentation will be, “LED Lighting — Opportunities, Challenges and the Future.” Leading test equipment and solution providers will also highlight the latest test developments and trends, including speakers from Advantest, LTX-Credence, Roos Instruments, and Teradyne.
Starting at 3:00 p.m. on Wednesday, July 10 and concluding at 4:45pm on Thursday, July 11, Test Vision 2020 will also include a networking and casual social event on Wednesday evening.
