"Over $100B in semiconductor M&As were announced in 20151, totally redrawing the industry’s competitive map. While customers are merging and changing their business models, the customer’s customers are inserting themselves into the details of device manufacturing.
"It’s disruptive and confusing. It’s not always clear who’s making the final decision. At the same time, DRAM prices are dropping, new non-volatile memory architectures are rising, and demand from IoT and smart manufacturing usher in new opportunities.
"Do you know where the industry is headed? Do you have access to your customers and your customers’ customers?
"SEMICON West is the one event that connects the extended supply chain in one place at one time. You'll have opportunities to connect with some of the best minds in the business from across the supply chain—materials, equipment, design, manufacturing, system integration, demand channels, and adjacencies such as flexible hybrid electronics, MEMS and sensor and more.
"SEMICON West is where Silicon Valley looks for their innovation engines. SEMICON West 2016 will feature 700 exhibitors and more than 115 hours of programs and networking events to connect the supply chain and provide the insights, access, and technical and business intelligence you need to win within the newly redrawn competitive map."
