What’s at stake?
Although actual chiplet-implemented automotive semiconductor devices aren’t here yet, automakers are busily imagining what chiplets can bring to their future. Is the chiplet mania wishful thinking, or will it finally open the future for flexible, scalable and differentiated automotive semiconductors that carmakers have always wanted?

Responding to a strong pull from the industry, Interuniversity Microelectronics Centre (IMEC), an international R&D organization backed by strong corporate partnerships, is kicking off the first world-wide automotive-focused chiplet event in Leuven, Belgium on June 20th. It will bring together representatives from more than 25 companies, including tier ones, tier twos, OEMs and tool vendors, Also invited are outsourced semiconductor assembly and test (OSAT) companies, and foundries.

This is great stuff. Let’s get started.
