AEC/APC Symposium Asia 2021 Message

High-speed, high-performance and high-functionality semiconductor devices have made a great contribution to development of digitalized society. According to some estimates, however, along with an explosive increase of data volume, calculation amount and communication traffic, their power consumption is expected to exceed total amount of power generated on the earth in a few years.
AEC/APC has made a long-term contribution so far, as one of the key enabling technologies, to increase productivity of semiconductor devices. As new digital technologies such as AI and IoT spread in the market, more efficient and valuable initiative of digital transformation (DX) has started. In addition to DX promotion to enhance its competitive edge, each business is now required to address sustainability transformation (SX) which features broader perspective to contribute to the fields of ESG (environment/society/governance). SDGs are ultimate goals that every business must pursue.
It is essential for semiconductor devices to achieve lower power consumption in addition to higher speed, performance and functionality. Higher efficiency is required in R&D and startup of high-volume production. Environmental footprints need to be reduced also at the stage of production of semiconductor devices. Lowering costs and lead time through further productivity enhancement and process optimization is one of the solutions to reduce environmental footprints, but more comprehensive efforts are required so as to optimize consumption of utilities and raw materials or to extend environmental initiatives to supply chain and engineering chain. Amid such circumstances, AEC/APC providing various control loops, both small and large, grows increasingly important and need to evolve furthermore.
