Asia is the home to the world’s biggest pure-play foundries and top outsourced semiconductor assembly and test companies. The region serves as a critical node in the global supply chain for products ranging from computational chipsets, storage and memory products, to microelectromechanical systems (MEMS). However, as the region faces challenges in terms of rising wages, aging population and increasing manufacturing complexity, existing electronics manufacturing practices need to be upgraded. In recent years, robotics and AI have played a key role in automating repetitive task, improving accuracy, minimizing reject rate and wastage, thereby accelerating time to market and innovation cycle. In this panel, our panels from different technology backgrounds will look to share their views on the following questions:

  • What's the future for electronics OEMs evaluating Asia as their manufacturing base?
  • What is the extent of automation on the production line, and how has COVID-19 impacted this thinking?
  • What are the issues switching from labor intensive assembly to robotics based assembly in electronics manufacturing process?
  • Does AI and Machine Learning have impact on factory floor and beyond?
