There will be no long TSA lines, late flights, Uber rides, noisy hotel rooms, missing luggage, or aching feet...all things that we now long for. Instead, we will be attending our first-ever online IPC APEX EXPO 2021 starting today.
We have all had our fill of online meetings, events, conferences and social interactions, and we know it’s not the same as meeting in person. However, the online experience has taught us that we can still have meaningful experiences and exchange ideas to help us improve.
One key benefit with this year’s IPC APEX EXPO is your ability to choose what session you will see or not see, as the IPC will have the sessions available for 90 days after the show so that you can catch up on whatever you missed. Also, those on your team who normally do not travel to the event will now be able to take part.
So, today’s the day for your team to virtually travel to IPC APEX EXPO and enjoy a full schedule of events that will drive industry conversation and inspire our future. We here at I-Connect007 will bring you our complete Real Time with IPC event coverage, along with our special annual post-show Real Time with IPC Show & Tell Magazine. This publication will be packed with multimedia content, reviews, interviews and more.
We have also produced a special one-minute I-Connect007 video that can be viewed here:

I recently spoke with PCB Technologies’ Jeff De Serrano, Yaniv Maydar, and Alon Menache about their new venture, InPack. They explain their plans to focus on advanced packaging, miniaturization, and other high-end technology, with much faster time to market, and they offer a view of the global market as well.

For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology (FIRST) is a robotics program at Oregon’s West Linn High School led by computer science and engineering teacher Tim Manes. Barry Matties caught up with Tim and his student team, 2BDetermined, at the FIRST Pacific Northwest District robotics event in Salem, Oregon. The team has excelled at the local and regional levels and was invited to participate in the world competition in April.

While there are many Chinese companies now selling in the United States, I wanted to find one in Taiwan that is penetrating the U.S. market. I was delighted to come across EISO Enterprise Co. Ltd., a printed circuit board fabricator located in Taiwan. I know that the American companies are usually looking for PCB global partners in countries other than China, which made my conversation with Gary (Jung Kun) Chien all the more interesting, especially when he shared his thoughts on the U.S-China trade wars.
