The Global Semiconductor Alliance (GSA), the voice of the global semiconductor industry, and SEMATECH, the international consortium of leading semiconductor device, equipment, and materials manufacturers, today announced that the GSA/SEMATECH Memory+ Conference will take place on April 16, 2012 at the Hyatt Regency in Tokyo, Japan.

2012 GSA/SEMATECH Memory + Conference to focus on memory scaling and intergration with logic for system optimization

Taipei, Taiwan | Posted on February 23rd, 2012

The 2012 conference offers an impressive line-up of speakers from SanDisk Corporation, NEC Corporation, IBM, Etron Technology, Toshiba Corporation, Samsung, Inphi Corporation, Rambus, and Advantest. The conference will commence with welcoming remarks by GSA president, Jodi Shelton, and Dr. Raj Jammy, vice president, Emerging Technologies, SEMATECH.

"GSA remains committed to the Japanese market since our inaugural event last year. Japan is an important leader in high-tech development and innovation and is crucial to the global semiconductor supply chain," stated Jodi Shelton, president of GSA. "We are dedicated to this dynamic region, and through our partnership with SEMATECH, we continue to provide relevant and thought-provoking content for the ecosystem."

"The need for global cooperation is critical in order to accelerate innovation in the continued scaling," said Dan Armbrust, SEMATECH's president and CEO. "The GSA/SEMATECH Memory+ Conference will bring the memory, logic and system design communities together to discuss extending current solutions to advanced transistor designs. GSA's global partnerships throughout the supply chain and mission to foster a more effective ecosystem are complimentary to SEMATECH's mission and makes them natural partner for this event."

The educational program will address on "memory scaling and integration with logic for system optimization" and themes include storage, 3D IC integration, system optimization: logic & memory co-design, and lab-to-fab strategy. The conference will also feature a luncheon workshop focused on "3DIC Enablement."

This annual event brings over 200 professionals together from memory, fabless, foundry and IDM companies; key suppliers including OSAT, IP, and EDA service providers; as well as OEM, ODM and system houses.

Organizers would like to thank the 2012 platinum sponsors, Amkor Technology, Inc. and TSMC; luncheon sponsor, Rambus, Inc.; gold sponsors include Advantest Corporation, Etron Technology, and Macronix International Co. Ltd; refreshments sponsor, 4DS, Inc., and booklet sponsor, Toshiba Corporation.

Online registration to the 2012 GSA/SEMATECH MEMORY+ CONFERENCE is complimentary and available through April 11, 2012. For additional information, please visit:
