IPC Issues Call for Participation for Electronics Materials Forum


Reading time ( words)

IPC−Association Connecting Electronics Industries invites engineers, researchers, academics, technical experts and industry leaders to submit presentation topics and descriptions for IPC Electronics Materials Forum, a new technical conference focusing on developments in materials and processes associated with electronics assembly and manufacturing. The conference will be held in Minneapolis, Minn., November 5-7, 2019.

The content of the IPC Electronics Materials Forum will focus on materials for board fabrication, assembly, and post-assembly protection with an emphasis on the emerging technologies that challenge our existing materials set. Developments needed for the future will be addressed, and interactive panels will extend an open forum to discuss solutions to these challenges.

IPC is seeking presentations on emerging technologies challenging existing material sets, as well as the following topics of interest:

Substrate Materials:

  • Novel board laminates
  • Surface finishes
  • Solder mask advancements
  • Flexible/wearable circuits
  • HDI developments

Assembly Materials:

  • New solder alloys
  • Flux development
  • Cleaning chemistries
  • Assembly process strategies
  • Thermal interface solutions

Protective Materials:

  • Cleaning chemistries
  • Conformal coatings
  • Adhesive
  • Underfills

“While many future technologies can be envisioned, they cannot be fully developed without the materials and processes to manufacture them,” said Brook Sandy-Smith, IPC technical education program manager, “this conference is ideal for engineers and managers that procure materials or want to understand advancements in materials for the board, assembly, components, and protective layers.”

CyberOptics Sensors: So Good That Their Rivals Use Them

12/20/2019 | Real Time with...productronica
Editor Nolan Johnson and Subodh discuss CyberOptics’ latest precision 3D systems, such as the SQ3000, which offers AOI, SPI and CMM functionalities. The inline CMM system includes top-of-the-line software for metrology grade measurements of critical points. Subodh points out that some of his competitors even utilize CyberOptics sensors in their equipment.

Global Political Turmoil Creating Uncertainties for the Industry

11/20/2019 | Chris Mitchell, IPC Vice President of Global Government Relations
From where I sit, representing the interests of electronics manufacturers and related companies around the world, I regret to say that the future of our industry—while bright overall—is fraught with uncertainties, from trade policy disputes to government leadership turnovers and economic and social megatrends. IPC is working with all governments and parties to overcome these uncertainties, but there is a lot to tackle.
