Featuring many great talents and leaders as guest speakers, the NACSA Annual Conference serves as a gathering place for busy professionals from the semiconductor industry in US and China. The forum focuses on the future of China's semiconductor industry and its impact to the world, with topics covering a wide range of areas including manufacturing, testing, assembly, white goods OEMs, IC system, fabless design houses as well as the policy making of the Chinese government. For this year's event, we have invited a prominent group of high profile IC industry executives from China and the US to share their experiences and perspectives. Our goal is to bring people together and work towards building a strong Chinese IC industry. Feature topics include: Intel's new fab in China, solar industry trend, and Lenovo's new vision.
