IPC APEX EXPO 2021 Goes Virtual


Reading time ( words)

IPC APEX EXPO 2021 will be offered virtually, March 8-12, 2021.

“Given ongoing COVID-19 health and safety concerns and continued restrictions for large gatherings and events in California, it was not feasible to safely convene the nearly 9,000 expected participants at IPC APEX EXPO 2021,” said IPC President and CEO John Mitchell. “The event will now take place in a safe, all-virtual format.”

While the event is going virtual, IPC APEX EXPO will still be the place to connect, collaborate and learn as the event’s virtual platform will allow attendees, exhibitors and speakers to easily navigate more than 100 technical conference sessions and professional development courses as well as product demonstrations, and schedule one-on-one meetings with exhibitors. As an added bonus, technical conference sessions will be available to registered attendees for replay, providing a unique opportunity to take advantage of education for 90 days after the event.

And rounding out the immersive experience, attendees can attend multiple keynotes, a “meet and greet” with IPC Hall of Famers and Emerging Engineers, participate in a virtual trivia event, and learn about cutting edge products and technologies during daily exhibitor new product introductions.

Mitchell added, “Be it in person or via an online platform, it is IPC’s goal to maintain IPC APEX EXPO’s position as the premier event for the electronics manufacturing industry, providing practical applications for learning – knowledge that attendees can immediately apply to their work and as well as far-reaching insights that can be applied toward implementing future technologies. Wherever in the world you may be located, IPC APEX EXPO 2021 is the place to be.”

Registration for IPC APEX EXPO 2021 is expected to open December 17. To view schedule at a glance and exhibitor list, visit www.ipcapexexpo.org. IPC APEX EXPO will return to an in-person format in 2022 and will take place January 25–27, 2022 at the San Diego Convention Center.

I-Connect007 Editor’s Choice: Five Must-Reads for the Week

It hardly feels like the end of 2021, but here we are, looking at a new year and IPC APEX EXPO and AltiumLive coming up in less than two months. If you don’t count days lost during the holidays, it’s more like one month before showtime. Hey, at least we have some live events to attend now. This week, we have some association and trade show news, as well as articles on data management and the diminished role of U.S. chip makers in the global electronics supply chain. We’re almost behind the eight-ball here, folks, and we can’t build chip factories overnight. Let’s get a move on!

Alex Stepinski: A Philosophical View

"My philosophy is to rely more on sensors throughout the process to measure things non-destructively, then build a model for how you’re going to perform, and just validate against the model," said Alex Stepinski. "It’s the next step slowly happening worldwide. For instance, we’ve had 2D AOI for many years. Sometimes, this is complemented with electrical tests. Now, you start to see more 3D AOI happening. You see them putting more sensors on the AOI equipment for direct measurement. Then, you also have the traditional signal integrity testing."

If you’re in the United States like I am, and if you celebrated with a traditional Thanksgiving dinner, like my family did, then you just might have fallen asleep sitting up in a chair (or in my case, stretched out on the couch) and missed some of the highlights in the news this week. Never fear, I woke up early to bring the top five news items you should know for this week. We have industry bookings and sales news from IPC, some news from the flex sector, an explanation of induction lamination from Happy Holden, and two different takes on “sustainability.”
