With the growth in mobile computing, the internet and cloud computing, opportunities to innovate and disrupt appear to be rising. Wearables hold the promise of creating a significant new market segment. Semiconductors play a key enabling role in all of these markets. This is reflected by growth at many of the existing players and increases in their  valuations but also in the decision by a number of companies–such as Apple, Google and Amazon–to add semiconductor design capability–in a manner analogous to that of the original computer and mobile players decades ago.  An argument can be made that 2014 marked a positive inflection point for the semiconductor industry, from which it may return to historic rates of growth.  Our keynote speaker, Young Sohn, President and CSO of Samsung Electronics will share his own unique viewpoints.  We look forward to welcoming you to this very interesting evening.
