EIPC to Hold Workshop on PCB Bio MEMs

Reading time ( words)

The European Institute of Printed Circuits (EIPC), in cooperation with the University of Bath, will be holding a workshop focused on PCB Bio-MEMS on December 8 at the Premier Inn Hotel in London Heathrow.

Bio-MEMS are biomedical (or biological) microelectromechanical systems (a.k.a. lab-on-chip). Given this strong market “pull” for more BioMEMs devices ($2.5 billion in 2014 and anticipated to grow at a CAGR of over 25% from 2016 to 2023), the commercialization of lab-on-chip devices is currently the “holy grail of the research community. The lab-on-PCB approach is being followed in various research groups all over Europe, owing to its inherent upscaling potential: the PCB industry is well-established all around the world, with standardized fabrication facilities and processes, however commercially exploited currently only for electronics.

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!

Weiner’s World—May 2017

China’s central bank is effectively anchoring the yuan to the dollar, a policy twist that has helped stabilize the currency in a year of political transition and market jitters about China’s economic management. The yuan weakened more than 6% against the dollar in 2016; this year, it is up roughly 1%, and the expectation that the currency will fluctuate—a gauge known as implied volatility—is around its lowest in nearly two years.
