iNEMI Recognizes Accomplishments of Project Teams

Reading time ( words)

iNEMI recently recognized five project teams with the consortium’s Project Leadership Awards. This is the first year the award has been given and it recognizes project teams that have delivered in the any of the following areas:

  • Superior performance of electronics manufacturing practices
  • Superior technology and business results
  • Positive impact on the electronics manufacturing value chain and its ecosystem

The five project teams are briefly described below; additional details are available online.

“This award recognizes the contributions and accomplishments of iNEMI project teams, specifically the individuals from our member companies who comprise these teams,” says Shekhar Chandrashekhar, iNEMI CEO. “They are doing significant work that directly benefits their own companies but also has a long-term, positive impact on the electronics manufacturing value chain. 

“By working together and leveraging iNEMI’s collaborative platform, these project teams have helped their companies accelerate and reduce the risk of adopting new technologies while helping ensure supply chain readiness for the wider industry. The projects being recognized in this inaugural round of Project Leadership Awards represent the types of work at which iNEMI teams excel — development of tools, sharing of best practices, characterization of new materials and development of more efficient and/or effective test methods. Congratulations to all these teams.”

Eco-Impact Estimator, Phase 3 — Significantly updated iNEMI’s Eco-Impact Estimator tool, which helps users make better design choices earlier in the product life cycle, and they launched a web-based version of the tool at Purdue University.

Package Warpage Prediction and Characterization, Phase 5 — Characterized the material properties of organic substrate-based packages to better understand the impact of curing processes on package warpage, and derived a modelling framework to predict package warpage.

Wafer/Panel Level Fine Pitch Substrate Inspection/Metrology, Phase 3— Provided data and insights into current AOI capabilities for measuring fine line and space (

Eco-Design Best Practices for a Circular Electronics Economy — Identified and communicated eco-design best practices derived from analysis of the shared approaches taken by several leading companies that are doing innovative/beyond-compliance eco-design work.

Conformal Coating Evaluation for Improved Environmental Protection, Phase 1 — Developed and evaluated a methodology for a conformal coating evaluation test that can be completed in less than a week and executed under temperature and humidity conditions representative of those in the field, which has the potential for significant cost saving for the industry.

There was some good news this week, as Republicans and Democrats managed to cooperate long enough to pass the CHIPS Act. Members of the House and Senate don’t usually act until they get worried about being voted out of office, so pardon me if I’m not ready to sing “Happy Days Are Here Again” just yet. But this is still really good news; the politicians are on the record now, and we can hold them accountable.
