Strengthening The Global Semi Supply Chain


This confluence of all these factors is creating disruptions around the globe. Compounding that, the end customer base is shifting from traditional chipmakers designing for a socket to a combination of systems companies, existing chipmakers, and a slew of new players that are developing chips for very specific applications. Some of those are being developed at the most advanced nodes, particula... » read more

Securing The Semiconductor Supply Chain With Secure Provisioning


The level of awareness of supply chain risks is rising and threats are being seen on many fronts. The Semiconductor Industry Association has reported instances of counterfeit parts being detected in critical systems, such as medical devices, transportation, and infrastructure. The scope, scale, and urgency of the problem are getting the attention of industry and government alike. The semicon... » read more

Collaborating To Decarbonize The Semiconductor Manufacturing Value Chain


By Mousumi Bhat and Peter Spiller SEMICON West 2022 Hybrid gathered experts from across the semiconductor industry for the debut Sustainability Summit to talk about the sustainability of the industry’s growth. Semiconductor chips have become ubiquitous in recent years. All aspects of society have become extremely dependent on semiconductors. The post-pandemic revenue growth of semicondu... » read more

Supply Chain Security And Counterfeit Detection Using Universal Chip Telemetry (UCT)


The recent shortage of chip supply and long lead times prompted system makers to turn to second tier suppliers and distributors for fulfilling their semiconductor needs. This in turn has put the spotlight on the growing concern of fraudulent or counterfeited Integrated Circuits (ICs). Proteus deep data analytics based on Universal Chip Telemetry (UCT) provides a new approach to supply chain ... » read more

A Sputnik Moment For Chips


Chip shortages are the new Sputnik moment, and they have created a sense of national and regional panic not seen since the days of the Cold War. For both the United States and Europe, those shortages have sparked some of the largest technology investments by government in the past half-century that are not strictly for the military — and by far the biggest involving semiconductors. Whi... » read more

Fab Investments Head Toward Record High


Corporations and governments around the globe are making record-breaking investments in chip manufacturing plants amid a major push to make the semiconductor supply chain more robust and less prone to shortages caused by everything from market variations to geopolitical interruptions. These investments — which range from updating existing fabrication facilities to building entirely new fab... » read more

Insights From Industry Strategy Symposium Europe 2022


The timely return to an in-person Industry Strategy Symposium (ISS) Europe was welcomed by participants from around the globe on May 30th at the Brussels Sheraton. ISS Europe 2022 featured a new program and event format – with industry insights and strategic topics condensed into one day of programming on three critical challenges facing the microelectronics industry: the energy crisis and su... » read more

Ways To Address The Materials Crunch


Stellar growth over the last two years and the seemingly insatiable demand for chips, at least through 2025, is sparking massive investment by chip firms — as much as $500B over the next five years. But without significant boosts in raw materials, parts for tools, and silicon to fuel facilities, such numbers are unlikely to be met. Materials are the Achilles heel to the rapidly expanding c... » read more

Chip Substitutions Raising Security Concerns


Substituting chips is becoming more common in the electronics industry as shortages drag on, allowing systems vendors to continue selling everything from cars to manufacturing equipment and printer cartridges without waiting for a commoditized part. But substitutions aren't always an even swap, and they increase security risks in ways that may take years to show up or fully understand. So fa... » read more
