Other distinguished guest speakers included Dr. Wei Shaojun, vice chairman of China Semiconductor Industry Association and Li Ke, vice president of CCID Consulting Co.

CEO Yen said, 'While Moore's law still serves performance intensive applications such as data servers and advanced smart phones, other high-tech segments are experiencing explosive growth including automotive ICs, IOT, AR/VR, UAV, medical and robot/ These diverse vertical markets requires strong partnerships and comprehensive technologies in order to realize customized application specific solutions.'
