The history of semiconductors started in 1947 with the invention of the transistor, and is now approaching its 70th-year milestone. In step with the advancement of semiconductors, remarkable improvements in social productivity and standards of living took place throughout the world. As we enter the age of the Internet of Things (IoT) in which everything gets connected via the Internet, semiconductors will play even more critical roles on a global scale, because semiconductor technologies are at the core of all major growth areas including healthcare, education, finance, automobile, aviation, aerospace, safety, and environment. Tokyo Electron’s semiconductor production equipment and flat panel display (FPD) production equipment, which forms the foundation for these industries, also serves as their core technologies that support innovations and enable the evolution of wide-ranging electronic devices.
