Standards Industry Leaders Honored at SEMICON West 2016
SAN FRANCISCO, CA — SEMI honored four industry leaders for their outstanding accomplishments in developing Standards for the electronics and related industries. The SEMI Standards awards were announced at the SEMI International Standards reception held during SEMICON West 2016.

The 2016 SEMI International Standards Excellence Award, inspired by Karel Urbanek,is the most prestigious award in the SEMI International Standards Program. Yesterday, it was awarded to Terry Asakawa of Tokyo Electron. His leadership was critical in establishing the PV Automation Global Technical Committee and its subsequent transformation into the Automation Technology Global Technical Committee, as he envisioned how the SEMI Standards Program could effectively address simpler, flow-oriented manufacturing in industries outside of semiconductor manufacturing.
