Semicon West to Offer TechXpot

TO SHARPEN its focus on productivity and effectiveness, this year’s Semicon West tradeshow and conference will by highlighted by its TechXpot theme on July 11-13 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco. TechXpot reportedly will offer targeted content and sessions, highlighting significant issues and innovations in electronic design collaboration and manufacturing productivity.

"The themes covered in our TechXpot are critical to the continued success of device manufacturers," says John Ellis, senior director of technology and standards at SEMI, which organizes Semicon West. "As manufacturers strive for first pass success on product designs, they’re looking for every avenue to improve yield and shorten cycle time. Solutions found through design for manufacturing, advanced process and equipment control, and e-manufacturing are fundamental to improving the performance of our fabs."

Located in the center’s Esplanade Hall, TechXpot will feature technical sessions from industry partners such as Silicon Integration Initiative (Si2), the Advanced Equipment Control/Advanced Process Control (AEC/APC) Symposium, Sematech, and the International Sematech Manufacturing Initiative (ISMI). Exhibitors will also be providing focused technical presentations on the stage.

Highlights for the hall also include the TechXpot stage, featuring winners of the Technology Innovation Showcase competition (TIS); a hands-on video arcade sponsored by Microsoft featuring the semiconductor innovations used in the XBox360; a wireless hotspot for attendees; and a special area set aside as meeting rooms for device manufacturers.

Si2 will present sessions on Design for Manufacturing and Collaboration on Designs below 90 nm. Also, Sematech/ISMI's session on manufacturability will feature chipmaker visions for the future of manufacturing technologies, emphasizing topics of importance for manufacturing success. Finally, the TIS 2006 winners in e-manufacturing will present on the TechXpot stage. These inlude Luminescent Technologies, Inc., Petersen Advanced Lithography, Inc., Seaware Technologies and Straatum.
