The latest trends and opportunities in flexible hybrid electronics (FHE) take the spotlight at FLEX Taiwan 2019 starting tomorrow as industry experts and leaders gather to provide insights into flexible chips and batteries, smart clothing, e-wear, precision sports and other flexible electronics innovations. May 29-30 at the Taipei International Convention Center (TICC), FLEX Taiwan 2019 also highlights the latest advances in flexible electronics manufacturing technology.
The global flexible electronics market is expected to be a major growth driver for the microelectronics industry. Powering this rapid expansion are key application areas including wearables, robotics, telematics and industrial automation. Flexible electronics are inspiring innovative solutions across agriculture, the environment, healthcare, transportation and other key areas to advance social good by combining high-performance semiconductor components with the lightness, scalability, softness and flexibility typical of printed electronics.
“Taiwan is a leader in the global microelectronics industry with cutting-edge manufacturing technologies and the densest semiconductor device supply chain community in the world,” said Terry Tsao, Global Chief Marketing Officer and president of SEMI Taiwan. “With its premier semiconductor and display manufacturing technologies, Taiwan is in a strong position to drive FHE innovation. SEMI-FlexTech complements Taiwan’s technology prowess, providing a key platform for promoting FHE collaboration and technology development across the industry to help drive growth.”
For the past 18 years, SEMI and FlexTech have championed the development of the FHE industry through conferences and exhibitions in major microelectronics manufacturing regions such as North America, Europe, Japan, Korea, Singapore and China. FLEX Taiwan provides a powerful platform for connecting with customers, suppliers, future partners, researchers and academia to drive collaboration and uncover new opportunities.
