Founded 1971 (2013: 43rd year)
SEMICON West is the flagship annual event for the global microelectronics industry. It is the premier event for the display of new products and technologies for microelectronics design and manufacturing, featuring technologies from across the microelectronics supply chain, from electronic design automation, to device fabrication (wafer processing), to final manufacturing (assembly, packaging, and test). More than semiconductors, SEMICON West is also showcase for emerging markets and technologies born from the microelectronics industry, including micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS), photovoltaics (PV), flexible electronics and displays, nano-electronics, solid state lighting (LEDs), and related technologies.

For 2013 we enter our sixth year of partnering with Intersolar North America to provide a complete experience for engineers and manufacturers whose expertise lies in both semiconductor and PV manufacturing. Registered attendees are able to visit both shows with their badge.
New technologies, new device architecture, new materials, and new markets are driving microelectronics research, development and manufacturing. From 450mm to 3D IC to HB-LED, your customers are looking for the technologies and solutions that will move their ideas from the lab to the fab.
SEMICON West 2013 is your opportunity to showcase your technologies, meet the people, and make the deals that move those ideas—and your business—into the future.
Technology Investments Driving Market Opportunities in North America
The continued market growth for mobile devices and connected technologies, along with new growth opportunities for LED lighting, photovoltaics, plastic electronics, and other related microelectronics industries, is driving demand in North America for manufacturing equipment, materials, and process technologies. New manufacturing technologies are creating business opportunities across the supply chain, driving developments and demand for advanced components and sub-systems, new materials, metrology, packaging, and test.
Whatever your business objectives may be, SEMICON West delivers the customers you need to meet and provides you the opportunities to move your sales forward and get business done.
