Reading time ( words)

FLEX Taiwan debuts June 7 at the Taipei International Convention Center (TICC), showcasing the latest flexible hybrid electronics (FHE) technology, innovations and industry insights. Organized by FlexTech, a SEMI Strategic Association Partner, the one-day technical conference provides a powerful platform for connecting with customers, suppliers, future partners and academia to drive collaboration and uncover new opportunities. 

2018 Flex Taiwan LogoProjected to reach US$73.43 billion by 2027, the global flexible electronics market is expected to be a major growth driver for the microelectronics industry. The lightweight, ultra-thin and foldable features of flexible electronics are inspiring new applications beyond the capabilities of traditional silicon- or glass-based substrates.

Featuring 14 keynote speeches, FLEX Taiwan 2018 brings together leaders across the semiconductor, flat panel display, sensor and other industries. Industry-leading companies including Robert Bosch, Brewer Science, E Ink, Jabil Circuit and top international research organizations will gather to share insights on market trends, innovative materials, advanced manufacturing technology and FHE application opportunities.

“Taiwan is a leader in manufacturing technology and has a complete supply chain for displays,” said SEMI Taiwan President Terry Tsao. “With these strengths, Taiwan is well-positioned to accelerate the commercialization of FHE products.”

For the past 17 years, SEMI and FlexTech have championed the development of the FHE industry through conferences and exhibitions in major microelectronics manufacturing regions such as North America, Europe, Japan, Korea, Singapore and China.

PCB Manufacturing (R)evolution in the Making

04/11/2018 | Stephen Las Marias, I-Connect007
At the recent HKPCA and IPC Show 2017 in Shenzhen, China, I was able to interview Les Sainsbury, CEO, and Andrew Kelley, CTO, of XACT PCB, as well as Alex Stepinski, vice president of Whelen Engineering’s PCB Fab Business Unit, to discuss process evolution and technology developments in the PCB manufacturing industry.

New Year, New Equipment—Right?

02/26/2018 | Patty Goldman, I-Connect007
This month, we will discuss the equipment purchasing decision-making process. How many of you can recall the earliest “dippy dunk” PCB shops, so-called because that’s exactly how it was done? There were no conveyorized lines, no automatic hoists, no load/unload stations, maybe not even a lab for analyzing the plating baths.

EIPC’s Winter Conference in Lyon, France: Day 2 Review

02/20/2018 | Pete Starkey, I-Connect007
The first day of the conference had started and ended in the dark—a long and technically intense day! After a convivial conference dinner and a good night’s sleep we were back on the bus, this time in daylight at the slightly later time of 8:00 a.m., for the journey from downtown Lyon back to Alstom’s conference facility in Villeurbanne, and it wasn’t raining. In fact, there was even some sunshine later in the day!
