Register Now for the EIPC Winter Conference Feb. 13-14

Reading time ( words)

Attending an EIPC Conference in the middle of winter is becoming a tradition. It joins many other traditions, nay even ancient customs, such as Beating the Bounds, which is still observed in some English and Welsh parishes.

Under the name of the Gangdays, the custom of going a-ganging was kept before the Norman Conquest. A group of old and young members of the community would walk the boundaries of the parish, to ensure that no farming was encroaching upon the common land upon which livestock could be grazed. They were usually led by the parish priest and church officials, to share the knowledge of where they lay.

It's the words “gang” and “old and young” which resonated, along with the sharing of knowledge. For “parish priest,” you might think of Alun Morgan, EIPC chairman, and for “officials” you could really only think of Kirsten Smit-Westenberg, who is the only official. True, EIPC has directors, but they are invariably busy tending their own flocks. 

So it would be really good if you could cut along to Rotterdam and join members of the PCB community and walk the boundaries of knowledge for a couple of days!

During the EIPC Winter Conference 2020, participants will learn how to meet and adapt to the changing needs of Europe and the global electronics market. Industry experts will explain the changes in the world-wide PCB supply chain for technology, materials and surface coating of printed circuit boards.

There were just a few empty seats in the huge, main lecture hall of the San Diego Convention Center on January 25 as IPC APEX EXPO welcomed the opening keynote speaker, science and tech writer David Pogue. Despite the early time of 8:30 a.m., the crowd enjoyed his topic, “Disruptive technology and how it will affect your business: What’s coming by 2026?” Pogue took us on a short journey through some of the technological innovations that continue to accelerate the transformation of our lifestyles and gave us a preview of how we might succeed in a world we’ve never seen before.

Continuing the highly successful series of EIPC’s Technical Snapshots, and featuring a programme that attracted a record attendance, the 14th online event was held on January 19. The opening presentation came from the ever-cheerful Didrik Bech, of Elmatica, who promised to provide thoughts and ideas about how to secure the supply chain to ensure compliance, not only to reduce the risks but also to increase the opportunities. Stan Heltzel from ESA Materials and Processes Section in the Netherlands gave a fascinating detailed insight into ESA’s approach to microvia reliability.
