Over the last several years, an influx of data has put increasing pressure and demand on the semiconductor industry. Smartphones and their cameras, and IoT devices that seem to be part of nearly every consumer device or product have created ramifications that include higher power density requirements, security concerns, and new data center strategies to support the growing demand.

Join us at our FormFactor offices in Beaverton, Oregon on Friday, April 6th, along with your colleagues to explore a range of topics related to the data explosion. We’ll cover these topics and more:

  • Market forces driving the data surge
  • The evolving role that data centers and the cloud will continue to have
  • What this all means for future IC products and package technologies
