China ESD Forum Workshop

Overview

Sponsorship Form 

This annual one-of-a-kind workshop/forum brings forth the realities of ESD requirements in light of the rapidly advancing semiconductor technologies requiring higher speeds of operations while balanced with much improved worldwide ESD factory control at fabs and assembly areas.


It is a two-day event to bring together electronics professionals to learn and exchange information about current issues of ESD requirements, and facilitate harmonization towards common goals for product cost savings.


Expert panel discussions provide intensive discussion and analysis that leads to valuable problem-solving exchanges.
