MagnaChip to Host Foundry Technology Symposium in China
MagnaChip will hold a Foundry Technology Symposium at the Shangri-La in Shenzhen, China, on November 27, 2018. After holding a successful Foundry Technology symposium in Shenzhen, China in 2015, this second technology symposium in Shenzhen is part of MagnaChip’s global foundry targeted geographic strategy to increase MagnaChip’s brand awareness in China.
Major topics to be discussed are MagnaChip’s current Foundry service offerings and future business roadmap, specialty technology processes, target applications and end-markets. This symposium is being conducted as a direct response to the increased interest and demand from current fabless customers in China for advanced analog and mixed-signal specialized foundry technologies.
During the symposium in Shenzhen, MagnaChip will highlight its technology portfolio along with discussions focused on mixed-signal, low-power technologies in the Internet of Things (IoT) sector, Bipolar-CMOS-DMOS (BCD) for high-performance analog and power management applications, Ultra-High Voltage (UHV) and Non-Volatile Memory (NVM). In addition, MagnaChip will present technologies used in applications including smartphones, tablet PCs, automotive, LED lighting, consumer wearables and IoT.
"We hope that this Foundry Technology Symposium in Shenzhen will better position us to understand our customers’ needs in China,” said YJ Kim, Chief Executive Officer of MagnaChip. “With our technology symposiums held in United States, Taiwanand now in Shenzhen, China, we strongly believe that we will be able to better serve our global customers with our long history of providing successful foundry services and with our deep technological expertise.”
A multitude of fabless companies, IDMs (Integrated Device Manufacturers) and other semiconductor companies are expected to attend MagnaChip’s Shenzhen technology symposium.
