MEMS & Sensors Executive Congress 2023 to Spotlight Sensorization Driving Global SolutionsOctober 2, 2023 | SEMI
Estimated reading time: 1 minute
Industry visionaries and experts will gather November 6-8 at the MEMS & Sensors Executive Congress (MSEC 2023) at the WIGWAM Resort in Phoenix, Arizona for insights into the latest trends and innovations in sensorization. Themed Sensorizing Our World – Driving Global Solutions, the conference will highlight applications and technology advances for growth markets including automotive, biomedical and MEMS healthcare, AI and generative AI, metaverse, positioning, navigation and timing (PNT), and sustainable smart cities. Registration is open.
“I’m very excited about this year’s MSEC 2023 theme of driving global solutions through sensorization,” said Tim Brosnihan, Executive Director of the SEMI MEMS & Sensors Industry Group (MSIG). “Sensors are essential to helping the world overcome challenges on a number of fronts, from climate change and transportation to improving health. At the same time, these obstacles create tremendous business and societal opportunities. We look forward to hosting industry leaders as they offer perspectives on the path forward.”
Hosted by the MEMS & Sensors Industry Group, a SEMI technology community, MSEC 2023 will kick off with an outdoor luncheon, a tour of EVG’s industry-leading MEMS tools and processing facilities, a poster session, and a presentation by Arizona State University Knowledge Enterprise Corporate Innovation Labs and faculty on MEMS and sensor innovation opportunities in Arizona’s Silicon Desert.
Day 1 at MSEC 2023 will also feature the Rolling Together Team Bike Building activity with bicycles to be donated to a local children’s charity.

Global TV Shipments to Fall Below 197 Million Units for the First Time in 2023, Slight Growth of 0.2% Expected in 202411/29/2023 | TrendForce
TrendForce’s latest research indicates that despite a decrease in the CPI in Europe and the US this year, consumer budgets are still constrained due to the current high-interest-rate environment, and the real estate bubble in China has suppressed TV demand. Moreover, a significant increase in TV panel prices this year has led brands to scale down promotional events.
ICAPE GROUP Consolidates Its Technological Expertise by Integrating Bordan Electronic Consult’s Assets in Germany11/29/2023 | ICAPE Group
ICAPE Group, a global technology distributor of printed circuit boards (PCB), announced the acquisition of 100% of the assets of Bordan Electronic Consult, a German company specializing in the design of "custom-made" technical parts.
Mycronic’s Kevin Clue discusses the new MyPro A40, a pick and place machine that is 48% faster than its predecessor. The A40 maintains the flexibility desired by high-mix, low-volume manufacturers while offering a wider component range, better accuracy and repeatability.
November’s issue of Design007 Magazine had an excellent theme that evolved around design simplification. There were exceptionally good articles about how to reduce over-constrained or needlessly complex designs. One significant time-consuming category is the creation of many design files and drawings which lead to lengthy creation and interpretation time along with the considerable time to resolve conflicting or erroneous information.
Pete Starkey speaks with Frederic Soulier and Damien Boureau from Altix and MGI Digital Technology. The combined expertise of two innovative companies lead to a radically simplified digital solution for solder mask and additive processes in one machine.
