Grenoble, the center of one of Europe’s key microelectronics ecosystems, is hosting SEMICON Europa 2014 Oct. 7-9.

This is the first time France has hosted the premier annual event for the European chip industry, which achieved a 7.9 percent market growth during the first semester of 2014, according to WSTS association. SEMI, the global trade organization that organizes the SEMICON gatherings, will alternate SEMICON Europa every other year between Dresden and Grenoble beginning this year.

The event in the ALPEXPO Congress Center is expected to draw more than 6,000 visitors and 400 companies, and will help showcase the Grenoble-Isère region’s strong microelectronics ecosystem, including worldwide microelectronics suppliers, leading R&D institutes, world-class universities and critical mass of tech companies.

As one of the event’s supporters, Leti is staging a 90-square-meter booth (number 1360 in the Science Park) to highlight its R&D themes of silicon technology, imaging/photonics/display, embedded systems, design, health and security. The booth with feature Leti’s mobile showroom, which demonstrates some of the exhibits on display in Leti’s permanent showroom on the MINATEC Campus.

Representatives from IRT Nanoelec, which includes 18 public- and private-sector research partners, will also be at the booth to present how industrials from all sectors can benefit from the rich technological offering of the Grenoble ecosystem.

In addition, Leti experts in fields ranging from low-power multiprocessing to future lithography options will present their insights and outlook in 10 sessions. Four sessions will be chaired by Leti.
