Internet of Things (IoT) will be on display at SEMICON Southeast Asia, 25-27
April at SPICE in Penang. The global exhibition and conference is
organised by SEMI, the global non-profit association connecting the worldwide
electronics manufacturing supply chain. More than 70 industry speakers and 200
companies and 7,500 attendees will participate in SEMICON Southeast Asia.
Creating new business opportunities and fostering stronger cross-regional
engagement, SEMICON Southeast Asia features a tradeshow exhibition, networking
events, market and technology seminars, and conferences.
With tens of billions of IoT devices forecasted
to be connected to the internet by 2020, the IoT is changing how people work,
play, and live. The IoT connects devices to the internet and to each other –
from mobile phones, washing machines, lamps, wearable devices through
industrial applications on airplanes and oil rigs. Alongside IoT ubiquity, the
borders between real and digital worlds are blurring with technologies such as
Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) becoming part of our everyday
The enabler for IoT and the new digital world is
the vital electronic manufacturing supply chain. SEMICON Southeast Asia will
gather over 300 exhibitors, the leaders in manufacturing equipment and
materials for semiconductors, MEMS, sensors, LEDs, and flexible hybrid
electronics. A special “World of IoT” Futura-X Showcase will
highlight system innovations made from the devices of the exhibitors. System
innovation exhibitors include: HTC VIVE(TM) virtual reality gaming device;
ADAWARP Teleporter for controlling a real-life robotic avatar; and the first
Malaysia autonomous vehicle from REKA, an indigenous innovation on converting a
traditional automotive to an autonomous vehicle.
According to Ng Kai Fai, president of SEMI
Southeast Asia, the IoT has already seen a big shift in the interaction between
humans and machines, and has brought about significant transformations in
manufacturing. “At this year’s SEMICON Southeast Asia (SEA), we feature a
‘World of IoT: Futura-X’ showcase, which will feature cutting-edge applications
that are fuelling new markets for electronics and connecting the world.
Companies will showcase their innovations in an early preview of technologies
set to change the manufacturing landscape and consumer demand. This new
showcase is validation of the output of SEMICON Southeast Asia’s amazing
electronics manufacturing equipment and materials exhibitors,” said Ng.
SEMICON Southeast Asia 2017 is the region’s
premier event for electronics innovation. With an expanding industry scope
ranging from chip manufacturing to system-level integration, it highlights the
market and technology trends driving investment and growth in all sectors
across the region. The event provides new business opportunities – by reaching
buyers, engineers and key decision-makers in the Southeast Asia electronics
industry, including buyers from Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, Indonesia, the
Philippines, and Vietnam.
