Executive Keynotes to Identify MEMS, Sensors, Imaging Innovations and Megatrends at SEMI-MSIG European Summits

Industry leaders to share latest developments in smart automotive, smart cities, smart industrial, biomedical, consumer and IoT, September 19-21, 2018, in Grenoble, France

GRENOBLE, France   June 19, 2018 –  STMicroelectronics CEO Jean-Marc Chery and  SEMIPresident and CEO Ajit Manocha will kick off the co-located  SEMI- MEMS & Sensors Industry Group’s(SEMI-MSIG’s)  European MEMS & Sensors Summit 2018 and  European Imaging & Sensors Summit,September 19-21 in Grenoble, France. Global technology leaders will provide insights on the transformation of the MEMS, sensors and imaging industry by megatrends such as artificial and autonomous intelligence, hyperscale data centers, cybersecurity, authentication, human-machine interface, and virtual reality/augmented reality (VR/AR). Speakers will also explore new platforms, models and materials that enable the performance and volume requirements of tomorrow’s MEMS, sensors and imaging devices.

In his executive keynote,  NXP Semiconductors SVP/CTO Lars Reger will discuss how sensors enable autonomous vehicles to make human-like decisions. Mr. Reger will highlight a complex automotive ecosystem that requires both MEMS and non-MEMS sensors – as well as other electronic measurement and control systems – to advance the autonomous vehicles of today and tomorrow CEA Leti CEO Emmanuel Sabonnadière will present how innovation is feeding technology and provide an overview on operational excellence, innovations in technology, talents management and leadership. An additional executive keynote speaker from  Renault will be announced soon.

“SEMI Europe’s European Summits offer influential stakeholders compelling forums for exploring technological developments – and manufacturing and materials advancements – that will dramatically improve MEMS, sensors and imaging technologies and the markets in which they play,” said Laith Altimime, president, SEMI Europe. “Partners, competitors, suppliers, end customers and attendees will also connect and explore opportunities during the exhibition and networking events that make our European Summits unique.”
