Deutsche Bank will host its annual DB Tech Conference on Sept. 12 and 13, highlighting 34 companies within the semiconductor space. Heading into the conference, investors are expecting the group to post "at least in-line to possibly better" results in the third quarter, the firm's Ross Seymore commented in a research report.

The companies themselves are likely feeling "optimistic" on seasonality in the back half of 2017 especially after reporting "solid" second-quarter results and third-quarter guidance. The analyst is currently modeling third-quarter revenue for the semiconductor group to be in-line with its seasonal growth rate of +7 percent quarter over quarter.

Here is a highlight of some of the more pressing issues and questions investors should expect clarity on at the conference.
