How can the SiP package technology bring unprecedented product performance? How can new software aid the semiconductor process to produce the devices with ever growing complexity? And how will the landscape of the Semiconductor industry change in China?
The development of the semiconductors industry will impact many industries. New generations of cell phones will be super thin because of the new process and package technologies.
