Call for Participation: IPC Electronics Materials Forum 2019


Reading time ( words)

IPC invites you to present at the upcoming IPC Electronics Materials Forum to be held on November 5–7, 2019.

This new technical conference will focus on developments in materials and processes associated with advanced electronics assembly and manufacturing. Materials enable advancement because it is possible to envision many future technologies, but they will never be fully realized without the materials and processes to manufacture them.

The content will focus on materials for board fabrication, assembly, and post-assembly protection. The over-arching theme of emerging technologies that challenge our existing materials set will inform attendees on developments needed for the future. Interactive panels will also extend an open forum to discuss solutions to these challenges.

Seeking presentations on emerging technologies challenging existing material sets.

Other topics of interest include:

Substrate Materials:

  • Novel board laminates
  • Surface finishes
  • Solder mask advancements
  • Flexible/wearable circuits
  • HDI developments

Assembly Materials:

  • New solder alloys
  • Flux development
  • Cleaning chemistries
  • Assembly process strategies
  • Thermal interface solutions

Protective Materials:

  • Cleaning chemistries
  • Conformal coatings
  • Adhesives
  • Underfills

Who Should Attend?

Engineers and managers that procure materials or qualify materials, or want to understand advancements in materials for the board, assembly, components, and protective layers: process engineers, manufacturing managers, materials scientists, SMT line managers, quality managers (for materials or failure analysis).

Please send title and short description to Brook Sandy-Smith, IPC technical education program manager, at BrookSandy@ipc.org by June 28, 2019.

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

04/16/2021 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
I’m sure it’s just me being hyperaware, but I can’t shake it: Mars is where it’s at right now. Is it just me, or do you get the same feeling from the news? There are the Mars rovers—three generations of them still rolling, now—and a drone helicopter winding up for a maiden flight any day now. But that’s not all. There’s SpaceX’s StarShip, rapid-prototyping its way into a manned flight to Mars. And NASA’s whole “return to the Moon” project is simply a shakedown for the U.S. government contractors’ Mars flight hardware, too.

Top Five Takeaways from IPC APEX EXPO 2021

IPC APEX EXPO 2021, which went all virtual this year, exemplified how the electronics industry has responded to the COVID-19 global pandemic: with resiliency, agility, and an unwavering commitment to build electronics better. APEX EXPO featured great content and robust discussions on topics of critical importance to the global electronics industry. From my vantage point leading IPC’s government relations programs, here are my top five takeaways from this year’s event.

IPC Supporting Newcomers in the Industry: Notes from IPC APEX EXPO 2021

04/01/2021 | Marc Carter, Aeromarc
With the wrap-up of IPC APEX EXPO 2021, it was extremely gratifying to note the emphasis placed on getting young people involved to combat the “graying out” knowledge losses facing our industry. A part of that emphasis was reflected in the award ceremony on Tuesday, March 9, which featured some people you may have seen mentioned in my “Better to Light a Candle” columns.
