Leti Organises Workshop on Recent Tech Advances & Future Outlook


Event Features Leti Experts on MEMS, IoT Communication Solutions, Smart Lighting and Display Applications, and System Reliability & Security

LETI EventLeti, an institute of CEA Tech, the Taipei Computer Association (TCA) and SEMI Taiwan will host a workshop “Imagine your future with Leti” from 9 a.m. to noon on Monday, Oct. 3, with a focus on some of Leti’s latest developments in micro and nanotechnologies and its vision of how these technologies will impact industry in the future.

The workshop for invited guests at the Howard Plaza Hotel Taipei Taiwan will feature a keynote presentation by Leti’s CEO, Marie Semeria, titled: “Leti, an IT & electronics technology innovation enabler for the future of industry”. Other presentation topics include:

  • New opportunities in connected health, Susana Bonnetier, program coordinator, Leti
  • Overview of Leti’s MEMS R&D activities, Julien Arcamone, MEMS business development manager, Leti
  • An innovative solution based on MEMS for structural health monitoring, Alexandre Paleologue, Morphosense co-founder & CEO
  • Smart-lighting and display applications, Ivan-Christophe Robin, strategic program manager, Leti
  • Anticipating new trends in communication systems for IoT applications, Laurent Hérault, vice president Europe, Leti
  • System reliability & security in a connected world, Alain Merle, strategic program manager, Leti
  • Discussions, networking and cocktails will follow the presentations at the workshop, which is also supported by the French Office in Taipei.

Leti is recognized as a global research pioneer in silicon materials, semiconductor technologies, photonics, sensing and imaging as well as communication and power. It has developed a strong and innovative technology portfolio to address the increasing need for energy-saving smart systems in fields such as automotive, advanced manufacturing, security, biology & health and smart cities.

“Taiwan is a global leader in design and manufacturing of microelectronic products ranging from ICs to MEMS, LEDs and displays,” Semeria said. “Leti’s expertise in these and related fields strongly complements Taiwan’s, and this workshop is designed to continue our discussions with Taiwanese partners about how we can work together to enable the innovative solutions that will help drive industry in the future.”

“There is no doubt that the ICT industry is transforming rapidly. It was the era of PCs, then mobile and now IoT. And IoT is something that you can merely predict its limits. Grenoble, France, as a great model of smart city, has been demonstrating its IoT applications through its advanced development in city sustainability and management of waste, energy, and traffic. If Taiwan takes advantage of its capability of cost-effective engineering and commercializing, collaborating with France will definitely create a win-win situation. It also will effectively promote the IoT globalization and enhance the development of the global economy,” said Zhang Li, deputy secretary general of Taipei Computer Association (TCA).

“The hype around IoT still continues and creates a wide range of opportunities, which not only have created interdisciplinary collaboration and diverse peripheral applications, but also have boosted the trend of Smart.” said Terry Tsao, President of SEMI Taiwan. “The major force behind this wave of IoT comes from critical technologies of electronics, plus the development of key components and the ability to offer customized services. SEMI is proud to partner with Leti in hosting this workshop that combines the strength of France in research and analysis with that of Taiwan in design and manufacturing. Through sharing and discussion, it is hoped that both sides can find a way to complement each other, while stimulating more innovation and opportunities for collaboration.”
