Additive Electronics TechXchange Program Announced


Reading time ( words)

The SMTA announced speakers from major electronics manufacturers and academia will present research as part of the technical program of the Additive Electronics TechXchange on October 15, 2020. Participating organizations include Auburn University, Duke University, Intel Corporation, Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman, and NSWC Crane.

The Additive Electronics TechXchange examines the manufacturing and design processes enabling line width and space from .003" to 5 microns as well as other new advanced technologies intended to meet the ever-increasing challenges of smaller, lighter and more powerful electronic devices. This year the event organizers expect to dive deeper into market trends, usage and where additive fits within low, medium and high-volume production for this portion of manufacture where the electronics industry straddles the line between PCB and IC substrate.

Sponsoring companies include AGC Taconic, American Standard Circuits, Inc., Averatek Corporation, Calumet Electronics Corporation, FTG - Firan Technology Group, Insulectro, MacDermid Alpha Electronics Solutions, and SUSS MicroTec. The conference is supported by I-Connect007.

Registration is free for SMTA members and sponsorship opportunities are available. For full details and to register, visit www.smta.org/additive.

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.

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.
