Lam Research President and CEO to Discuss a Virtual Path to a Trillion-Dollar Industry at SEMICON West 2023
A range of Lam speakers to present on topics shaping the future of the semiconductor industry
June 29, 2023

Fremont, Calif., June 29, 2023 – Lam Research President and CEO Tim Archer will deliver the opening keynote address at SEMICON West 2023, where he will discuss the paradigm shift that is needed to accelerate the next generation of innovation amidst unprecedented complexity and a larger, more geographically distributed semiconductor industry. The 53rd annual event will bring together industry leaders from across the global microelectronics industry next month, July 11-13, at the Moscone Center in San Francisco.

During his keynote, Archer will share his perspective on why now is the time to evolve from solving problems in the physical world to addressing them – faster – in the virtual world. Archer’s talk will be part of the CEO Summit, which will focus on the chip industry’s progress towards $1 trillion in annual revenue.

Additional Lam speakers will share insights in sessions and panels on topics including dry resist technology, workforce development, climate equity and social impact, sustainability innovations, cybersecurity and the latest trends in sensorization.
