Ultrapure Micro 2018 Starts In


About The Ultrapure Micro Conference

The Ultrapure Micro conference explores the latest trends in microelectronics industry water and chemicals management.

The technical program has multiple, topically oriented tracks, roundtable sessions and hands-on, in-depth training sessions in advance of the conference to serve as a primer or refresher. No other industry event covers the breadth or depth of water and chemical issues for semiconductors.
