SEMICON JAPAN 2016

Hello everyone, this is Sun Tong, a M2 student.

The SEMICON JAPAN 2016 was held in Tokyo Big Sight on 14-16 December, Tokyo. It is one of the largest international exhibition of semiconductor industry in the world. As an exhibitor, Tanaka Lab had a booth in the World of IOT (Internet of Thing) area, which was prepared by staffs. Besides staffs, six students from our lab also got the great opportunity to attend this event on 14 Dec, including Shao-san(D2), Nishino-san (D1), Kaneko-san(D1), salman-san(M1), Morimura-san(B4) and me.

SEMICON①
Tokyo Big Sight

Our student group got together in Sendai Station at around 7am and took the Yamabiko train to the Tokyo. We arrived at Tokyo Big Sight at about 10 am. The SEMICON already started and crowds of people was flowing into the site. Following with people stream, we entered the site.

The exhibition area was mainly separated into 2 parts: Front-end Process Zone and Back-end/Materials & Overall Process Zone. More than 600 high-level industrial companies and laboratories from all over the world gathered there. Bringing their latest technologies and productions, they made presentations and demonstrations to attract potential collaborators. Apart from that, several small but special zones were also set in this exhibition such as World of IOT zone which focused on IOT system/solution and Mirai College Corner which provided a communication platform for job hunting students and companies.

It was the first time for me to attend such a big scale industrial fair and it broadened my horizon. Those latest technologies and productions really impressed me. Hitachi exhibited their NEXTAGE, which is a humanoid dual arm industrial robot. 4 cameras and image recognition technique help it to recognize surroundings and positions in 3D so that it can work next to people. Toyota exhibited their latest FCV (fuel cell vehicle) Mirai. Comparing to internal-combustion engine, the eco-car has higher energy conversion efficiency. And what’s more, it uses Oxygen and Hydrogen as fuel so that no exhaust gas will be generated.

Tanaka Lab’s booth was located in World of IOT corner, which was managed by Takoshima-san. Several posters showed Tanaka Lab’s research fields and achievements to visitors. And Hirano-sensei gave a great seminar titled “Wafer-level heterogeneous integration using metal bonding based technology” in STS MEMS/Sensor Session at TechSTAGE INNOVATION&IOT area.

And finally, we would like to thank our sponsor, SEMICON Mirai-College, who has provided we return travel expenses from Sendai to Tokyo.

芋煮会 2016

 こんにちは、B4の寺西です。2016年も残り1月半となり青葉山の空気もすっかり冷え込んで参りました。今回は10月に開催された芋煮会の様子について報告させて頂きます。

 今年の芋煮会はシーズンとしてはやや遅めの10月28日に開催されました。直前まで雨が心配されていましたが、当日は曇りで少し肌寒く、鍋物を食べるには丁度良い気候の下で始めることができました。ここで、初耳の方のために簡単に説明させていただきますと、芋煮会とは河原で鍋料理を楽しむイベントの事で、主に東北地方で秋の風物詩とされています。仙台でもこの時期になると牛越橋の近くで鍋を囲むグループをちらほらと見かけるようになります。

 鍋は山形風(醤油ベースで牛肉入り)と仙台風(味噌ベースで豚肉入り)、野菜オンリーの三種を用意しました。ここに里芋が共通して入っているのも芋煮の特徴の一つです。これらの準備をB4の学生が行い、田中秀治先生の挨拶から芋煮会を始めるまでがイベントの恒例になっています。
芋煮会④
河原での調理なので窯には河原の石を使います。このシーズンだと他のグループさんの作ったものがそのまま残っていたりします。

芋煮会③
普段話す機会が少ないメンバーと交流を深めることができるのもイベントの魅力の一つです。
野菜オンリーの鍋も好評の様でした。

芋煮会①
B4の大柴さんからマシュマロが提供されたので石窯の余熱で炙りながらいただきました。
一部が焦げるとあっという間に広がるのでやってみるとなかなかに難しかったです。

芋煮会②
他のグループの方にお願いして集合写真を撮影していただきました。
こうしてみると様々な国籍のメンバーが一堂に会していることがわかりますね。

 今回のイベントでも沢山のメンバーから助力をいただきました。食材と鍋の運搬を引き受けてくれた森村君と大柴さん、準備と後片付けに協力して下さった先輩方にはこの場を借りてお礼申し上げます。どうもありがとうございました。

最後に、来年も良き芋煮日和に恵まれることを願います。

ジャパネットたかた・前社長・高田明さんの講演

第33回「センサ・マイクロマシンと応用システム」シンポジウムと第8回「集積化MEMSシンポジウム」が,2016年10月24~26日に長崎県平戸市で開催されました。初日の基調講演は,平戸市出身の株式会社ジャパネットたかた・前社長・高田明さんによる「夢持ち続け日々精進」というお話でした。時折,おなじみのフレーズを挟みながら,聴衆を魅了する素晴らしいお話をされました。要旨は以下の通りです。
The 33th Sensor Symposium and The 8th Symposium on Integrated MEMS Symposium were held in Hirado, Nagasaki. Keynote speech in the first day was given by Mr. Akira Takata, Founder of Japanet TAKATA, which is a TV shopping company familiar to all Japanese people. Hirado is his hometown. The title of his speech is “Always Have a Dream and Make the Best Effort”. The audience was strongly attracted by his talk and humor. The summary is as follows.

*****
いつも夢を持とう。私は67歳になっても,あと50年生きなければ思う程,夢がある。そして,今を一生懸命生きる。過去の失敗にくよくよせず,未来の不安に過度に気を揉まない。今が未来に繋がっていて,今が変われば,未来も変わる。今の努力がいつ結果に繋がるかはわからないが,決して無駄にはならない。
自分のやっていることを,他の人に伝えることが大切。伝わらなければ,努力は実らないし,社会に還元されない。たとえば,良い製品ができても,良さが伝わらなければ売れず,使ってもらえない。伝わるプレゼンテーションには技術が必要。話の間,手振り,視線が大切。
We should always have a dream. I am 67 years old but have dreams, which motivate me to live 50 years more. It is important to do the best at every moment. It is not productive to repeatedly regret the past fails and to be too much anxious about the future uncertainness. The present is connecting to the future, and thus you can change the future by changing the present. Your current effort eventually helps yourself, although no one knows when it comes.
It is important to let other people know what you are doing. Without it, your effort would yield nothing in the society. For instance, your good product is never purchased or used, if its benefit is not well explained. Effective presentation needs skill. Pause, gesture and eyeline are keys.
*****

講演の後,当研究室の展示ブースの前で,高田さんとお話しする機会がありました(田中)。
After the session, I (Tanaka) had a chance to talk with Mr. Takata in front of the booth of our laboratory.

Future Technologies from Hirado

From Thao Pham, D1 student

33rd Sensor Symposium this year was chosen to hold in Hirado island where a beautiful and historic location full of interesting museums, Christian churches, white sandy beaches and an imposing castle in Nagasaki prefecture from 24th to 26th October.
Sensor Symposium has been the leading conference for the researchers in sensors, MEMS and their application systems in Japan with the long development since 1981. With the academic supports from Tanaka sensei and Yoshida sensei, I highly appreciated a great chance to attend this conference. Actually, it was more difficult to reveal how eager I was because it was the great opportunity not only to approach the other researches in the Japanese universities and Taiwan universities, but also to understand Japanese history.
The conference activity was started with the invited talks from the important professors, and welcome party. Introductions of young researchers from various universities was also interesting part in this party. In additional, follow the schedule of the conference, Japan and Taiwan International Exchange Symposium was also held with the attendance of famous professors in Japan and Taiwan. Key information for connecting and collaborating between Japan and Taiwan, in general, and between the particular laboratories also shared in this forum.
My presentation was on the first day of the conference, and I felt slightly nervous at the previous time before it happened. However, according on the tips and strongly encouragements from all sensei, Tanaka sensei, Yoshida sensei, and Suzuki sensei, I gave my presentation quite well.
On the last day, Awards in 33rd Sensor Symposium was announced. Yukio Suzuki sensei and coauthors was honored with Outstanding Technical Paper Award for "Fabrication of Deep TSV in Laser-Erased CMOS LSI Multi-Project Wafer for Surface Mountable Integrated MEMS" presented in IEEJ 33rd Sensor Symposium. The paper "Fabrication and Verification of a Stacked-Assembled Device with Seesaw-Electrode Type Tactile Sensor and Sensor Platform LSI" coauthored by Toyota Central R&D Labs, Toyota Motor and us was selected for Outstanding Poster Award in IEEJ 33rd Sensor Symposium. The top author was Hata-san at Toyota Central R&D Labs.

Beside on the conference time, I also had time for investigating the history and travelling to some famous places in Hirado. As searching before, the first place which I was chosen for visiting is Hirado Dutch Trading Post (平戸オランダ商館, Hirado Oranda Shōkan). This trading post was set up as the base of operations of Dutch East India Company in Japan in 1609 after De Liefde (charity), the first Dutch ship, to reach Japan in 1600. This trading post was reconstructed in 2011, and inside it is an excellent museum that chronicles the history of Japanese-Dutch relations and explains how international trade and commerce was conducted at that time. I also found a Dutch-Japanese lady there. And the second place, St.Francis Xavier Memorial Church was the next spot where I decided to visit. It is home to some interesting Christian churches dating back one hundred years or so. Anyway, I believe that you will find out another interesting thing on this beautiful island when you come there.
Once again, I would like to send my highly appreciation to the great supports from Tanaka sensei and Yoshida sensei for my opportunity to attend this conference. I think that I received many things from 33rd Sensor Symposium, such as new connections with other younger researchers from various universities, Tokyo university, Ritsumeikan university, etc.
