The organizing committee of the International Electronics Circuit Exhibition has decided to reschedule the 2021 exhibition from 8–10 December 2021 to 5–7 January 2022.
The show venue will remain unchanged in Halls 5–8 of the Shenzhen World Exhibition & Convention Center (Bao’an). The organizers will continue to make every effort to prepare for the exhibition, maintain close communication with all relevant parties, and closely monitor the development of the pandemic. The exhibitors are being encouraged to make corresponding re-scheduling arrangements.

In this week’s must-reads, we have coverage of NAMM 2023 and SMTA Atlanta, plus some tips for traditional PCB designers who are entering the RF design space, where designers have to master ideas like antenna tuning. We also have some news about March PCB sales, as well as a great conversation with Ventec’s Frank Lorentz, who explains how to set up an onboarding process that converts new hires into happy, long-term employees.

The use of AI in the music industry seems only natural. For example, if you’re trying to create a specific sound, rhythm, mix of instruments, or volume level, you’d typically be in front of a series of mixers and controls, making tweaks and adjustments. If you’re trying to create a piece of music that is similar to one you already have, AI can do that for you. Just give it some basic instructions and let it go to work.

What goes down must also come up. This is not the idiom we’re used to hearing, but I’d like to apply it to IPC APEX EXPO 2023. After a few years of lower attendance numbers due to the COVID pandemic, 2023 ushered in a re-invigorated group of attendees, exhibitors, speakers, event contractors, and staff to the show floor and meeting rooms. IPC APEX EXPO 2023 was fueled by the possibilities of new advances in electronics manufacturing.
