STMicroelectronics CEO, Jean-Marc Chery and SEMI President and CEO, Ajit Manocha will kick off the co-located SEMI-MEMS & Sensors Industry Group’s (SEMI-MSIG’s) European MEMS & Sensors Summit 2018 and European Imaging & Sensors Summit (19th-21st September in Grenoble, France).
Global technology leaders will examine the influence of megatrends, such as artificial and autonomous intelligence, hyperscale data centres, cybersecurity, authentication, human-machine interface, and Virtual Reality/Augmented Reality (VR/AR) on MEMS, sensors and imaging.
Speakers will also explore new platforms, models and materials that support the performance and volume requirements of tomorrow’s MEMS, sensors and imaging devices.
In his executive keynote, NXP Semiconductors SVP/CTO Lars Reger will discuss the powerful decentralised ways that sensors allow cars to perform more human-like decision-making in autonomous driving.
Mr. Reger will highlight a complex automotive ecosystem that requires both MEMS and non-MEMS sensors - as well as other electronic measurement and control systems - to advance the autonomous vehicles of today and tomorrow. CEA Leti CEO, Emmanuel Sabonnadière will present on how innovation is feeding technology, providing an overview on operational excellence, innovations in technology, talent management and leadership. An additional executive keynote speaker from Renault will be announced soon.
“Our European Summits offer influential stakeholders a unique forum to explore the technological developments - and manufacturing and materials advancements - that will dramatically improve MEMS, sensors and imaging technologies - and the markets in which they play,” said Laith Altimime, President, SEMI Europe.
“Whether partners, competitors, suppliers or end-customers, attendees will also benefit from mutual engagement during the exhibition and networking events that make our European Summits so unique.”
SEMI-MSIG’s Summits will be held at the WTC in Grenoble, France, in the heart of the French Silicon Valley (5-7 Place Robert Schuman, 38000 Grenoble, France). Premier sponsors of the Summits include: Gold Sponsors ASE Group, Presto Engineering, Inc. and SUSS MicroTec Group; Silver Sponsors Applied Materials, EV Group, LFoundry, and SPTS Technologies. Event sponsors include: JSR Micro N.V., Materion, Okmetic, and Trymax.
