SEMICON Japan 2015, an exhibition in Asia for semiconductor manufacturing and related processing technology, opens tomorrow at Tokyo Big Sight. The exposition and conference offers the latest in technology and innovations for the microelectronics industry, including emerging opportunities in the new World of IoT (Internet of Things). SEMICON Japan (December 16-18) registration is now open for both the exhibition and conference programs.
Japan is uniquely positioned to support the IoT revolution with its large 200mm fab capacity, diverse product mix and leadership in markets such as MCUs, automotive, power devices, sensors and LEDs. SEMICON Japan 2015 connects the players and companies enabling the world of IoT by facilitating communications and partnerships across the microelectronics industry.
Highlights at SEMICON Japan include:
