SEMICON Taiwan Tracks Advances in ICs, Manufacturing

With Taiwan forecast to rank as a top buyer of chipmaking equipment, the stage is set for SEMICON Taiwan 2022. Here, companies from across the electronics design and manufacturing supply chain gather for insights into the latest trends, developments and innovations driving industry growth. Registration is open for the exhibition and conferences, September 14-16, 2022 at TaiNEX 1 in Taipei.

SEMICON Taiwan, the region’s largest semiconductor event, is likely to draw 50,000 attendees, 2,450 booths and 700 exhibitors. Particularly, it will spotlight seven key industry themes, namely Advanced Manufacturing, Heterogeneous Integration, Compound Semiconductors, and Auto Chips. In addition, Smart Manufacturing, ESG & Sustainability, and Semiconductor Cybersecurity, will complete the key industry themes for this year.

SEMICON Taiwan 2022 gathers companies across the electronics design and manufacturing supply chain for trends and insights driving industry growth.

Taiwan as Key Enabler of Trends

Taiwan is likely to maintain a top position in purchases of chipmaking equipment in 2022 and 2023. This as global sales of total semiconductor manufacturing equipment reach a record US$117.5 billion in 2022, said SEMI’s recent Mid-Year Total Semiconductor Equipment Forecast – OEM Perspective.

“Long a semiconductor manufacturing powerhouse, Taiwan is a key enabler of trends including digital transformation, supply chain resilience and sustainability and remains central to the semiconductor industry’s continuing growth,” said Terry Tsao, Global Chief Marketing Officer at SEMI and the President of SEMI Taiwan. “We look forward to hosting industry leaders at SEMICON Taiwan 2022 as they gather to collaborate and drive innovations that address some of the world’s most pressing challenges.”

SEMICON Taiwan 2022 Highlights

This year, the various for a will discuss latest advances in 2.5D/3D IC packaging solutions and advanced testing technologies. Particularly, TSMC, Intel, ASE, AMD, AUO and other industry leaders will grace the Heterogeneous Integration Global Summit 2022, IC Forum, and Advanced Testing Forum.

Meanwhile, Audi, Denso, Bosch, PixArt, Foxconn, Win Semiconductor, Texas Instruments, Infineon Technologies and Qorvowill join the Global Auto Chips Executive Summit, MEMS & Sensors Forum, and Power and Opto Semiconductor Forum. Here, these companies will share innovative automotive technologies and help strengthen the network of design and manufacturing partners.

Rockwell Automation, Lam Research, and Siemens will focus on data management, intelligent testing and analysis, and smart factories at the Smart Manufacturing Forum.  On the other hand, Microsoft and TXOne Networks will explore zero-trust architectures and supply chain cybersecurity governance and standards in an effort to reduce cybersecurity risks and strengthen supply chain resilience at the Semiconductor Cybersecurity Global Summit.

Tackles Sustainability, Too

SEMICON Taiwan 2022 Workforce Developmemt Program series will feature industry, government, and academia representatives discussing key topics including the Talent Development Seminar – Empowering Youth Employability, Woman in Semiconductor (WiS) Seminar, and Diversity and Inclusion Seminar as the semiconductor industry works to expand awareness of career opportunities and recruit skilled workers vital to innovation and industry growth.  

Meanwhile, the annual event will also show support to Taiwan government’s Pathway to Net-Zero Emissions in 2050 initiative. Particularly, the ESG & Sustainable Manufacturing Summit and Strategic Materials Conference Taiwan will bring together companies to share their progress in reducing carbon emissions and developing green innovations.
