The IoT/Edge Compute Era has ushered in an order of magnitude increase in connected devices each year compared to
smart mobile devices. With this comes great challenges in processing data at the edge with connected devices, the need
for intelligence and security in those devices, all with an eye toward sustainability. These formidable challenges create great
opportunities for innovation. For semiconductor foundries, this is the first compute era not dominated by single digit
nanometer technology, rather by creating compelling features on existing technologies to enable this connected, intelligent
and power efficient ecosystem. Building that ecosystem requires great R&D partnerships to deliver on the promise of this

A more electric and digital world, which we call Electricity 4.0, is key to addressing the climate and energy crises and unocking a sustainable and resilient future. Electricity is the most efficient energy and the best vector of decarbonization, and with digital innovation it unleashes huge potential to eliminate energy waste. Only by disrupting the way we manage energy can we deliver a net zero carbon world.
The semiconductor industry also has the responsibility to transform its energy use for a net-zero future. The good news is that semiconductor companies have made many commitments to decarbonize their operations, especially their fabs. But how are they delivering on their green promises?
Join this inspiring talk from energy and automation leader Schneider Electric to explore the value of digital energy technology and meaningful partnerships that help ensure a bright and sustainable future for semiconductor companies.
