STUTTGART, Germany –
SEMI, the global industry association representing more than 2,000 companies
in the electronics manufacturing supply chain, announced that MEMS & Sensors Industry Group (MSIG) will
become a SEMI Strategic Association Partner effective January 1, 2017.

this strategic partnership, SEMI and MSIG members will benefit from stronger
consolidated representation in the MEMS and sensors segments. Members will
access SEMI’s global platforms, including its SEMICON expositions and
International Standards program, and MSIG’s events, including MEMS &
Sensors Executive Congresses, MEMS & Sensors Technical Congress and MSIG
Conference Asia. MSIG also brings member-focused initiatives, such as the
TSensors™ initiative, as well as industry Standards and community-building to
the new partnership.   

“SEMI members are
increasingly engaged with MEMS and sensors manufacturing,” said Denny McGuirk,
president and CEO of SEMI. “The convergence of IC technology, flexible hybrid
electronics (FHE), and MEMS and sensors for consumer electronics and IoT
applications makes this partnership a clear win for the combined membership.
The synergies between our associations will result in increased member value, a
unified voice for the MEMS and sensors sector, and a strong platform for global
industry collaboration. Ultimately, it will accelerate our joint strategic
objectives at a global level and provide greater opportunities to advance the
growth and prosperity of members.”   

“Our partnership with
SEMI reflects our commitment to our members, who have supported us since MSIG’s
inception in 2001,” notes Karen Lightman, executive director, MEMS &
Sensors Industry Group. “MSIG members will benefit from this relationship with
increased access to global resources and service offerings, the expertise of a
complementary industry and fast-track entry to worldwide programs. Ultimately,
MSIG members will gain broader reach as they pursue new business opportunities.
We are delighted to have such a capable and accomplished partner and look
forward to our strategic association partnership with SEMI.”
