SEMICON Japan 2022 Opens Tomorrow to Showcase Cutting-Edge Technologies Powering Semiconductor Industry Growth
Opening keynote panel to feature Rapidus representatives discussing strategies for strengthening Japan’s semiconductor industry.
TOKYO ─ December 13, 2022 ─ SEMICON Japan , the largest and most influential gathering of the microelectronics manufacturing supply chain in Japan, opens tomorrow at Tokyo Big Sight with more than 670 exhibitors from 11 regions showcasing their latest products and technologies. Themed Forward as One, SEMICON Japan 2022 will highlight cutting-edge technology innovations in areas including artificial intelligence (AI), robotics, autonomous vehicles, green energy, Internet of Things (IoT), medtech, and quantum computing. Registration is open for the Dec. 14-16 exhibition and conferences.
“With strong governmental support and leadership, Japan is revitalizing partnerships with leading global companies to grow its semiconductor industry,” said Jim Hamajima, president of SEMI Japan. “In addition, SEMICON Japan 2022 comes as Rapidus plans to reach volume production of state-of-the-art 2nm logic chips within the next five years and Japan intensifies its focus on developing advanced packaging technologies.”
Underscoring its renewed commitment to becoming a leading manufacturer of advanced chips, Japan last month announced an initial investment of 70 billion yen (US$500 million) in Rapidus, a new Japanese chip production company created by Denso, Kioxia, MUFG Bank, NEC, NTT, Softbank, Sony Group and Toyota Motor.
