Eurosemi has announced the launch of their IC industry awards. They have split the awards into two categories, with the first category – including awards for yield management and wafer processing – primarily voted by the device manufacturers and the second category – with awards for R&D marketing and best start-up – also voted for by the toolmakers and other providers in the industry. Nominations are open until 20th April, and sponsorship opportunities are still available. The awards will be announced at Semicon West.
