SEMICON Taiwan 2019, will take place in Taipei from September 18-20, to feature more than 2,200 booths and 700 exhibitors from around the world and is expected to draw a record number of 50,000 visitors this year.
United Microelectronics Corporation (UMC), a leading global semiconductor foundry, today announced that Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI) has selected UMC as a global component for the 12th consecutive year. UMC earned DJSI's highest scores for the foundry industry in the "Environmental" category, with several items receiving full marks.
Power consumption is a crucial consideration for all types of electronics. As critical power components used in a wide range of electronic products, power MOSFET and other types of power semiconductor devices already enjoy enormous demand and this market segment is experiencing another wave of growth driven by fast rising popularity of automotive electronics in recent years. One year into its efforts toward backend wafer process of power semiconductor devices that started in 2018, iST has come up with the most comprehensive portfolio of backend wafer process solutions in the Taiwan semiconductor sector.
The continuous process scaling and moving toward heterogeneous integration have enabled the vigorous innovation in the semiconductor industry in the post-Moore's Law era, which in turn drives the rapid development of 5G/AI/IoT applications. Behind this, semiconductor equipment makers play an important role in helping semiconductor manufactures create larger capacity, faster in speed, lower power consumption, and higher reliability chips with more sophisticated process equipment.
