Future Fab, Leading Information Resource for Chip Fabrication Industry, Publishes First Digital Edition Online
(Nanowerk News) Mazik Media, publishers of Future Fab International and Fab Engineering and Operations Magazine, the leading information marketplace for the chip fabrication industry for the last 12 years, announce the publication of their first online quarterly digital issue of Future Fab, formerly available only twice yearly and on paper.
The world is becoming a digital domain through rapidly evolving consumer product releases, the proliferation of the Internet and the ability of these technologies to advance progress.
"We envision a new reality where business-to-business communication is more versatile for the reader and cost-effective for those that make the magazine possible: the advertisers," explained Nikki Wood, founder and Publisher of the leading information resource for the fab industry. "The world is becoming a digital domain through rapidly evolving consumer product releases, the proliferation of the Internet and the ability of these technologies to advance progress." Visit Future Fab International online.
Mazik Media also publishes FFI's new digital sister publication, FEO: Fab Engineering and Operations Magazine, designed to address the until-now completely ignored mainstream semiconductor segment of the market. The first in its field to focus on mainstream device fabrication plants (fabs) specifically, FEO concentrates on the issues that fabs face day in and day out, guided by an editorial board comprised of engineers, fab managers and industry specialists in their respective fields.
The new digital editions of Future Fab and FEO are already attracting increased interest from advertisers who are now able to reach the well established reader groups served by Mazik Media's publications at a fraction of the cost once charged for the all-paper edition of Future Fab International. The company has doubled the frequency of publication to quarterly and readers are excited by the additional editorial content that promises.
Mazik Media has cemented a deeper relationship with SEMATECH, now a major partner in Future Fab International. Through this collaboration, and Mazik Media's existing relationships with IMEC, Silicon Integration Initiative (Si2), Fab Owners Association, ISI, and ISSM, the company continues its significant growth spurt.
"As we extend the reach of Future Fab's readership, we're excited to be the only magazines to cover the whole Fab Design/ Manufacturing/ Packaging process," Wood said. "Our growing family of publications now covers the convergence of all the multidisciplinary issues that manufacturers in a nanometer manufacturing era face."

About Mazik Media, Future Fab International, and FEO Magazine
Mazik Media, Inc. is a San Francisco media company, and publisher of the two leading B2B magazines for the fab industry. Future Fab International was conceived in 1996 answering the information deficit in the semiconductor industry caused by a growing focus on vendors in the manufacturing space that resulted in less editorial focused on the manufacturers. Recognizing the need for an unfiltered channel of information exchange between manufacturers, R&D consortia and other associated groups -- Future Fab International was born to serve those needs. Mazik Media began publishing FEO: Fab Engineering and Operations in 2007 -- the first publication to focus on mainstream device fabrication plants (fabs). FEO's editorial direction is guided by an editorial board comprised of engineers, fab managers and industry specialists in their respective fields.
