Korea Emerging as a Manufacturing Leader—Attend SEMICON Korea

SEMICON Korea 2008, the largest exposition dedicated to semiconductor and flat panel display (FPD) manufacturing in Korea, returns to the Convention and Exhibition Center (COEX) in Seoul, January 30- February 1. Featuring more than 540 exhibiting companies with over 1,550 booths, the exposition showcases the latest equipment, materials and services for the production of 300 mm silicon wafers, nanotechnology devices, FPD, and photovoltaic products. SEMICON Korea will demonstrate the region’s emergence as manufacturing leader of consumer electronic products.

Currently, Korea has eight 300 mm fabs in production, mainly for the manufacture of Flash and DRAM, with nine more scheduled to go into production over the next six years. In 2007, preliminary figures show capital equipment spending of $7.38 billion in the region.

The exposition includes four halls of product and technology exhibits, as well as a full range of technical and business sessions including a new program focused on photovoltaic technologies. Stefan Lai, vice president of Business Development at Ovonyx, will deliver the keynote—focusing on the wide range of applications for PCM memory technology.

The SEMICON Korea STS (SEMI Technical Symposium) January 30-31, features technical sessions including: Advanced Lithography, Dielectrics Metals New Materials and their processes; Device, Etching, Contamination-free Manufacturing and CMP; Electropackaging Systems and Interconnect Products. The symposium will offer a comprehensive view of technological innovations for next generation semiconductor manufacturing.

Other programs include an IP seminar, which will focus on the importance of IP, and why mutual IP protection should be emphasized; a greenhouse gas reduction and energy saving seminar; and a photovoltaic technology seminar, as well as multiple standards and market sessions.
