  • The Very Big Picture, the Future of Semiconductor Packaging Technology (July 14) — with speakers from 3MTS, AMD, Oracle, and more; plus a panel discussion on “Value vs. Cost”
  • Packaging: Digital Health and Semiconductor Technology (July 14) — with speakers from Cisco, Medicustek, GE Global Research Center, Medtronic, and more
  • Test Vision 2020The Road to the Future of Test  (July 15-16) — with keynote from Kaivan Karimi, VP at Atmel, Inc. plus speakers Brad Shaffer of IHS and Thomas Burger of AMS. Sessions include: Wireless Test in the IoT Era; Unique Test Flows for New Cost Challenges; and Advanced Packaging, Advanced Test Challenges. Panel sessions will discuss “How Secure is your Test Data, Really?” and “What Does RF Test Look like in Five Years? Future Solutions for Lowering the Cost of Transceiver Tests”

In addition, two packaging and test sessions will be offered as part of the TechXPOT program on the exhibition floor (free to exposition attendees):

  • Automating Semiconductor Test Productivity (July 14) — a panel of experts from the semiconductor test community, including representatives from TI, STMicro and ASE,  will discuss challenges and opportunities for automating test operations to maximize productivity
  • Auto Utopia: Gearing up Semiconductor to Turns Dreams to Reality (July 15) — with speakers from ASE, Gartner, PRIME Research, ASE Singapore, and more (session partner: MEPTEC)
