SPIE Advanced Lithography 2014 – February 23-27, 2014

San Jose Marriott and San Jose Convention Center
San Jose, California, United States
23 – 27 February 2014

Coventor will be in Booth #330

alThis is the premier conference for the lithography community. For 38 years, SPIE has brought together this community to address challenges presented in fabricating next-generation integrated circuits. Symposium participants come from an extensive array of backgrounds to share and learn about state-of-the-art lithographic tools, resists, metrology, processes, and design and process integration.

Coventor will be in Booth #330 and showcasing our SEMulator3D 2014 virtual fabrication platform that leading IDMs, foundries and memory suppliers are using to dramatically reduce the cost and time involved in process development invoking advanced technologies such as FinFETS and 3D ICs.

MEMS Executive Congress® US 2013 – November 7-8, 2013

MEMS Executive Congress® US 2013 – November 7-8, 2013
Meritage Resort and Spa, Napa, CA.

This year, there were many unique changes brought to this already distinct professional forum that make it a “Can’t Miss” event. We have added new features, like the MEMS Technology Pitch Session, and will offer Media Training by the esteemed best-selling author TJ Walker. We have also reduced the number of panel discussions, but have included more speakers, simply to deliver more industry news and hot topics. Sure to be one of the best in recent memory, don’t miss the opportunity to be a part of MEMS Executive Congress® US 2013!

Coventor will sponsor the popular post-dinner networking event on Friday November 8. It’s a great chance to review the day’s events with your colleagues, discuss trends in the industry, and catch up with old friends from around the MEMS world. Coventor executives will be on hand to chat about the latest developments from the leader in MEMS design automation solutions.
