Global semiconductor marketplace and search engine Partstack has joined the JEDEC Solid State Technology Association to support the standardisation of semiconductor quality and reliability.
Unveiled today, Partstack’s membership complements its existing collaborations with the Semiconductor Industry Association (SIA) and SEMI, both of which are looking to bolster the future semiconductor market.
As part of JEDEC’s JC-14 committee, Partstack will work with fellow committee members to develop standards for board-level reliability of solid-state products used in computers, automotive, telecommunications, and other commercial equipment.
Stanley Philip, Programme Manager at Partstack, says that its JEDEC membership will help to actively shape the semiconductor landscape and collaborate with over 300 member companies worldwide.
He continued, “Semiconductors and electronic components are ever evolving to meet today’s challenges. Our commitment to constant development and re-evaluation of test methods and quality management system standards for these components aligns with our excitement to contribute to the future of the microelectronics industry.”
The wider US semiconductor landscape
President Biden signed the CHIPS and Science Act, part of his Investing in America agenda, into law in August 2022, with the goal of strengthening US supply chains, creating good-paying jobs, protecting national security, and advancing US competitiveness.
Looking beyond just the US, however, electronic materials advisory firm TECHCET earlier this year revealed its projection that the ‘total semiconductor materials market’ will rebound with almost 7% growth in 2024 to reach a value of circa $74bn.
This upward turnaround comes after a contraction of 3.3% in 2023 due to the overall semiconductor industry slowdown and decline in wafer starts.
Further still, the total semiconductor materials market is expected to grow at over a 5% compound annual growth rate (CAGR) from 2023 through 2027. By 2027, TECHCET anticipates the market to reach $87bn or more, with new global fab ramps contributing to a potentially higher market size.
European Specialty Gas Summit
Join gasworld this June for its first-ever European Specialty Gases Summit, devoted to addressing all of the key trends in specialty gas markets, unearthing the answers to those questions, and bringing together the analysts, end-users, and specialty gas producers and innovators that will realise this bright new future in industry and digital.
This is a dynamic 2.5-day event to reflect the fast-paced marketplace for electronics and specialty gases in Europe – and the array of questions still waiting to be asked.
With informed speakers and live, unscripted panel debates covering these splinter topics, be sure to stake your place at gasworld’s European Specialty Gases Summit to stay at the forefront of the region’s hot topic value chain.
