SINGAPORE – 16 August, 2021 (Source: SEMI®)– SEMICON Southeast Asia (SEMICON SEA) 2021, the region’s premier event for the global electronics manufacturing and design supply chain, will gather industry experts from around the world for insights into the latest semiconductor ecosystem developments and trends with a focus on 5G, a key industry growth driver. Registration for the virtual conference and exhibition event from 23-27 August 2021 is open.

Themed Powering Innovation – 5G and Beyond, SEMICON SEA 2021 will highlight opportunities for the semiconductor ecosystem to deliver on the promise of 5G. Offering unprecedented network speed and capacity, higher reliability, and lower power consumption, 5G is poised to reshape sectors such as healthcare, agriculture, mobility, robotics, imaging, and sensor monitoring over the coming years. Advanced, high-performance, and reliable semiconductor chips are key to 5G infrastructure development that will help power future Internet of Things (IoT) economies worldwide.

“5G has enormous potential to transform economies, businesses, and societies,” said Ms. Ng Bee Bee, president of SEMI Southeast Asia. “However, gearing up for 5G hardware and software growth poses many challenges for materials, chip fabs, design, testing, and other sectors within the semiconductor supply chain. To help overcome these hurdles, 5G ecosystem leaders and changemakers will share their visions and ways the industry can come together to drive 5G innovation worldwide.” 

“We are delighted to host SEMICON Southeast Asia 2021 this year,” said Mr. Terence Gan, senior vice president, Semiconductors at the Singapore Economic Development Board. “Singapore plays an important role in the global semiconductor supply chain. Some of the world’s largest semiconductor companies have established their manufacturing and R&D centres here. These companies have been able to tap the strong support of government agencies and the semiconductor ecosystem, and are well-positioned to capture growth opportunities in the sector. SEMICON Southeast Asia provides a platform for global leaders from business and government to come together and collaborate to seize these opportunities.”
