“FUTURECAR: New Era of Automotive Electronics” - New Workshop by SEMI and Georgia Tech

SAN JOSE, Calif-  June 15, 2016  - SEMI and Georgia Tech announce a new program “ FUTURECAR: New Era of Automotive Electronics Workshop” to take place on November 9-10 at Georgia Tech in Atlanta, Georgia.  Addressing the fast changing intersection of automobiles and electronics, the workshop offers insight and collaboration on autonomous cars, electric vehicles, enabling high-bandwidth wireless communication, and components that can withstand high temperature and demanding emerging requirements.

Complex and new technical components and architectures are being introduced in automotive electronics - including autonomous vehicles for improved safety, sensing electronics, secure high-speed streaming communications and infotainment, and improved batteries for electric cars.  As consumer demand continues to increase, automotive electronics will account for an increasing percentage of the value of the car, creating a multi-billion dollar market within a decade.

Workshop sessions include:   

  • Autonomous driving: Cameras, radar and lidar (light detection and ranging)
  • Electric Cars: Co-design and fabrication of Gallium Nitride (GaN) and System in Chip (SiC) devices and packages for high power
  • Computing and communications: High-bandwidth wireless (5G), digital (2.5D / 3D) and photonic Si and glass technologies
  • High-temperature and high-reliability: substrates, components, interconnections, encapsulants and reliability mechanisms
  • Cross supply-chain collaborative platforms to assess technology options and business risks
  • Complete value-chain enablement and development of standards and roadmaps

The workshop will focus on what is needed in technologies, and technology ecosystem stewardship, to enable swift and cost-efficient commercialization. The FUTURECAR workshop draws on the synergy between Georgia Tech in R&D along with its industrial partners, and  SEMI in global electronics manufacturing stewardship across the supply-chain. Key to the depth of the program is support from co-sponsors International Electronics Manufacturing Initiative (iNEMI) in roadmaps, and International Electrical and Electronics Engineers Components, Packaging and Manufacturing Technology (IEEE CPMT) and International Microelectronics Assembly and Packaging (IMAPS) as global electronics societies.

Workshop co-chairs are Rao Tummala, Georgia Tech; Pushkar Apte, SEMI; Bill Bader, iNEMI; and Urmi Ray, Qualcomm and IMAPS.
