Theme: What it takes to transform - Smart Manufacturing Environment

Synopsis: What does Smart Manufacturing mean for the future of the electronics manufacturing supply chain? The electronics manufacturing supply chain holds many different perspectives, but one thing is clear - the impact of Smart Manufacturing will be huge.

Recent advances and low-cost technologies for sensing, connecting, and analyzing masses of data has push the boundary of next generation of disruptive improvement in even the highly sophisticated world of semiconductor and electronics systems manufacturing. Advanced automation and sensing technology coupled with highly sophisticated advanced data analytics now offer the manufacturing sector an opportunity to better integrate automation and structural data from separate silos to drive actionable and optimized manufacturing efficiencies.

The Technology Innovation forum on smart manufacturing keynotes from leaders across the electronics manufacturing supply chain offers relevant and thoughtful insights of how Smart Manufacturing is revolutionizing the electronics manufacturing environment.

Synopsis: Semiconductor industry leapfrogged beyond expectation and set a new milestone in of semiconductor revenue of more than USD400 billion in 2017. Indeed 2017 was a record-setting year for the entire semiconductor supply chain industry with growth expected to continue into this year as new semiconductor applications for the industrial, automotive, artificial intelligence, and consumer markets proliferate at an ever-increasing rate.

In this half a day Market Trend forum, subject matter experts from the chip makers, market research analysts covering equipment and materials, applications domain and advanced packaging space as well as financial analyst will share with you the latest current industry trends and drivers for 2019 and beyond.

 Theme:  The Driving Trend in Advanced Packaging for Emerging Applications and Factory Connectivity


Synopsis: In continuation of last year theme in Advanced Packaging forum on Advanced Packaging Solution for Heterogeneous Integration, this year forum delves further into the needs for emerging applications. Beside investing in packaging techniques advancement for integrated applications, the driving trend is to integrate into a full system of high performance and functionality devices with smart manufacturing. The connected system in packaging world shall drive for yield performance excellence in high-tech manufacturing. 

           The topics look into the learning of technique advancement for driving applications in Asia and take a peek on how factory connevtivity brings benefits to backend manufacturing. 
            An interactive panel discussion will have an exchange of insights by the industry leaders



Theme: Sustainability Manufacturing for Higher Productivity and Lower Cost of Ownership in Semiconductor Production.

Synopsis: Manufacturing in high technology industry inadvertently is heading for a revolutionary transformation with major advances in enabling innovations addressing energy efficiencies and clean emissions in electronics manufacturing.

Sustainability has for past being view as a secondary concern is not receiving much needed attention as semiconductor companies advanced in their corporate social responsibility towards environment protection. In so called ‘green’ manufacturing of reducing pollution, recycling and reusing of what is considered waste and reducing energy consumption is starting to gain momentum in the Southeast manufacturing regions. New ways of thinking of green semiconductor manufacturing is offering, apart from a sustainable environment, also a considerable competitive advantage to semiconductor companies through cost savings.

Both sustainability and energy efficient manufacturing yields benefits not only in terms of an improved bottom line, but in terms of employee motivation, morale, and public relations. This forum offers a unique view points of the opportunities available in tackling both of these important elements in high technology semiconductor manufacturing of today.

Theme: Internet-of-Things Impact on Semiconductor Testing

Synopsis: The evolution of Internet has given rise to quick access of data, transformed into useful info and then generate actions that affect our daily lives. The data are collected from “Things”, in the IoT sense, a variety of devices with wide spectrum of applications such as medical applications, artificial intelligence, automotive sensing and more, connecting to billions of devices.  To be able to handle these devices connected to the network, the transformation of 4G to 5G network would come faster than we can ever imagined.  In the next generation of network, it would couple with many standards to address different needs. 

As you examine closely, not only connectivity of the network would be complex, the system requirements such as CPU speed, power consumption, DFT and DSP, many of these devices would be ever demanding technologically and commercially to manufacture them. 

In this forum, the speakers from the industrial leading companies would give the audience the insight, and address the challenges in test that we might face as we are transforming into the era of the connected information.


Synopsis: South East Asia is a vibrant hub of electronics manufacturing. From IC’s, components and micro assemblies to finished consumer and industrial electronic products, Southeast Asia is a major supplier meeting the demands of the world markets. With excellent IP protection, to deep manufacturing know-how and a competitive engineering talent, foreign direct investments for the electronics segment has grown significantly over the years. The fact that Southeast Asian countries also offer the twin benefits of geographical proximity to major markets like China and India and relatively low labor costs, further help in making countries such as Malaysia,Vietnam, Thailand and Philippines natural homes for foreign high tech manufacturers wanting to relocate their Asian bases.

With recent global uncertainty development especially in the emergence of global protectionism policies, there is strong indications that electronics manufacturers are deeply evaluating mid and longer term impacts of these measures and are seeking a deeper understanding of the attractiveness of Southeast Asia’s High Technology Parks in the region.

SEMICON SEA’s Southeast Asia Investment forum  is intended to provide global electronics players a platform to understand the technology parks in the region and aspire to provide an overview of the incentives and policies that is shaping the electronics segment development in these countries. This year we are delighted to have representation from Vietnam, Malaysia and Philippines as well as banking institutions as well as legal to speak on the broad incentives and FDI structuring for FDI into the electronics manufacturing sector. In addition, through SEMICON Southeast Asia, there will also be a platform to assist potential delegation in a business mission visit to participating High Technology Industrial Parks.


          Theme: Shaping Malaysia’s E&E Policies towards a Sustainable Growth Path – Road mapping towards Success


         With the megatrends in this digital age, the semiconductor industry has leapfrogged to more than USD400 billion in less than 4 years and is projected to surpass the USD500 billion milestone by 2020.  Considering the     industry took 13 years to grow USD100 billion from 2000 to 2013, the significance of the growth experienced over past years is phenomenal. How does a measured electronics industrial policy help shapes the domestic capabilities to capture business opportunities afforded by this huge growth of the semiconductor industry in foreseeable future? What are the gaps, if any and, opportunities for enhancement of the existing policy that would be reflective a more comprehensive perspectives on steps required to build a vibrant and thriving E&E sector? Governments and policy makers would need to  create a strong foundation to pave the way to capture the growth, however, a proactive approach from the industry will be the way to take the policy forward, and to bring up real competitive advantage. This CXO Speaks provide a perfect platform to hear the challenges raised and opportunities arises in mapping an industrial policies taking into considerations of both the government bodies and industry perspectives. It serves to provide a deep insights into building a resilient and growing electronics industry for Malaysia.
