SEMICON West 2021 to Explore New Semiconductor Supply Chain Strategies and Opportunities Dec. 7-9 

MILPITAS, Calif., Nov. 30, 2021 -- Future implications of ongoing global supply chain disruptions will take the spotlight as U.S. Deputy Secretary of Commerce Don Graves joins SEMI President and CEO Ajit Manocha for opening remarks at SEMICON West 2021 Hybrid, December 7-9 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco. Graves and Manocha will discuss opportunities for the U.S. semiconductor industry enabled by the CHIPS for America Act and its potential impact. Registration is open.

SEMICON West 2021 Hybrid will also convene speakers and a panel of experts to explore new tactics and alliances to help ensure greater supply chain agility and resilience for both the semiconductor industry and the broader electronics design and manufacturing ecosystem.

The panel will evaluate Future Risks and Threats to Supply Chain Security, covering not only implications for the semiconductor industry, but also for the mobility, medical, cyber and other sectors affected by the supply chain disruptions. The time to start preparing for the next wave of the current supply chain crisis is now, according to James Gellert, Chairman and CEO of the financial health data and analytics company Rapid Ratings. The panel will discuss new strategies and tools for better preparedness.

Speakers at SEMICON West 2021 Hybrid will highlight healthcare, sustainability, emerging semiconductor industry growth drivers, innovation opportunities, and lessons learned during the past two years of global challenges.

SEMICON West 2021 Hybrid will also feature keynote presentations (see November 10th announcement) by industry luminaries such as Rick Wallace, President and CEO of KLA, and Tim Archer, President and CEO of Lam Research, on critical semiconductor industry issues.
