2016 CASPA Special Symposium: Memory, The Turning Point Of China Semiconductor04/09/2016 - 04/09/2016

On CASPA's last 2016 Spring Symposium, we talked about augmented reality and virtual reality. Along with cloud computing, smart phones, and IoT applications, these technologies will continue to improve our daily life. However, semiconductor memory is critical in all these fields and will continue to be a key growing sector and back bone. With continued market expansion, China is poised to play a crucial role in reshaping the global semiconductor industry, and memory will be the turning point for China moving forward. This symposium will discuss how the memory industry has evolved, why China focus on memory development and how China's memory companies will respond to the exciting opportunities ahead of them.
