Tokyo Hosts Semiconductor Trade Show


inIn Tokyo, an international trade exhibition has begun, exhibiting cutting-edge semiconductor technologies and hosting around 960 companies and organizations from Japan and across the globe. This annual event spans three days and is scheduled to conclude. Sony Semiconductor Solutions is actively engaged in showcasing its latest line of image sensors, emphasizing their versatility in diverse applications, including the inspection of food container interiors. Sony asserts that it has leveraged its proprietary technology to develop these compact, high-resolution sensors.

At the international trade show in Tokyo, Disco, a precision processing machine manufacturer, is presenting a cutting-edge device capable of slicing silicon wafers to a thickness of one one-hundredth of a millimeter. The company highlights the increasing demand for such slicing technology as chip performance continues to advance.

Alongside established firms, startups are actively participating in the exhibition with a focus on attracting students and young individuals to join the chip industry workforce. Despite the growing number of semiconductor plants being constructed in Japan, the industry confronts a shortage of engineers. These startups aim to entice and engage younger talent in the semiconductor sector.
