SEMI MEMS & Imaging Sensors Summit Highlights Innovations Across Consumer, Industrial Markets

More than 400 electronics industry experts will gather at SEMI MEMS & Imaging Sensors Summit, 25-27 September, 2019 in Grenoble, France, for the latest MEMS and imaging sensors developments and innovations that are advancing the user experience with hundreds of millions of smart devices. MEMS and imaging sensors power a wide range of applications including autonomous systems for transportation and agriculture, cellular security systems, mixed reality (MR) headsets and biomedical wearables. Registration is open now with early-bird pricing available until August 17, 2019.



The SEMI MEMS & Imaging Sensors Summit will also showcase how companies now combine intelligent sensing with data analytics, low-power networks, and machine learning for smart city applications such as smart parking, smart irrigation, smart construction and smart lighting.

Featuring both MEMS technology and Imaging sensors tracks, the Summit opens with executive keynotes by Alibaba, TowerJazz, Microsoft, and VTT and addresses by Claudia Levo, executive vice president, Integrated Marketing and Communications, STMicroelectronics, and Laith Altimime, president, SEMI Europe.

“Exciting advancements in MEMS and imaging sensors are changing the way we live, work and play,” said Laith Altimime, president, SEMI Europe. “With MEMS and imaging sensors so synergistic, this year we offer a unified conference with industry leaders across multiple markets providing insights on cutting-edge trends and technical innovations, all under one roof. Global experts will network and collaborate across the supply chain and market segments – from transportation and industrial to consumer mobile and biomedical – to drive the development of next-generation smart devices.”
