15th European Manufacturing Test Conference (EMTC)

Semiconductor Test: A Reactive or Proactive Industry?

Date: 8 - 9 October 2013

Time: 13:00 - 18:00 / 09:00 - 12:30

Location: Garden Hall, Messe Dresden


This year's European Manufacturing Test Conference will focus on real solutions in the production test of semiconductor devices, but also invites discussion on MEMS and SiP testing and the challenges presented by "More than Moore" technologies.

Informed by presentations from key industry speakers, a panel discussion will debate "Is Test Becoming a Commodity?" and take a critical look at whether the test industry in Europe is a leader or follower of other semiconductor market segments.

Smaller, specialized solution companies will have the opportunity to present ideas and gather feedback from other industry experts and peers, helping to establish tighter links between start-ups, academic institutions and industry players involved in driving test to the next level.

Who should attend?

The EMTC focuses on (Design for) Test Technologies, Approaches and Equipment that are being developed in Europe and elsewhere. Attendance for this conference is a must for Product- and Test Engineers, as well as for their managers. As the conference also discusses breakthrough methodologies which impacts Test Operations, also test-fab managers and decision makers should attend and participate in the EMTC. Besides attending the formal sessions there are many opportunities to get together and discuss in an informal atmosphere the latest developments and experiences.
