The close integration of SEMICON Europe (Hall B1) with productronica provides visitors to the trade fair with a complete range of information this year. In addition to semiconductor manufacturing, the production of displays, LEDs and discrete components, the topics photovoltaic manufacturing, micro-nano production, materials processing and clean room technology will be shown. Furthermore, industry representatives will benefit from a comprehensive supporting program with top-rate conferences.

Semiconductors will play the main role at the productronica: Modern industrial societies are inconceivable without semiconductors. Regardless of whether smartphones, cars or medical devices, almost no technical product is without this “core element” of electronics manufacturing. Furthermore, the megatrends energy efficiency, mobility and connectivity are continually demanding new solutions. Especially the Internet of Things, in which billions of networked devices will soon communicate with each other, has once again increased the speed of changes, states the organizer of the productronica. In addition to the price and new features, above all "time-to-market" determines the success of a product. According to the organizer, it is no wonder that the semiconductor industry is one of the most of innovation-driven industries. The consequence: considerable investments in research and development.

Such high-tech products place high demands on manufacturing conditions. Almost all semiconductor processes take place in a clean room to prevent harmful contamination from dust particles. In the meantime, however, the components have been shrunk to structural sizes where even molecular contaminants pose a danger, according to the organizer. The “clean zone” (Hall B2) at this year's productronica shows how to ensure that you work “cleanly”. A trade fair innovation enables visitors to access an imaginary clean room via virtual reality (VR).
