LED A.R.T. Symposium is Just Around the Corner

Reading time ( words)

LEDs (light emitting diodes) had a rapid progression from research laboratories and academic institutions to store shelves and light sockets. This aggressive adoption curve has made LEDs ubiquitous across multiple applications, including automotive, industrial, sports, and entertainment lighting systems. However, the main challenge to an even wider deployment platform for LEDs is the disconnect between the potential performance observed in laboratories and the real performance observed in the field.

The 2016 LED Assembly, Reliability & Testing (A.R.T.) Symposium, organized by the Surface Mount Technology Association (SMTA) and the Center for Advanced Life Cycle Engineering (CALCE), will provide attendees with information to bridge the gap between the semiconductor physics and the architectural design level issues in LED supply chain. The LED A.R.T. Symposium is the forum for the industry to explore the problems faced—when it comes to design, manufacturing, reliability assessment, testing and inspection of LEDs and LED lighting products—and offer solutions.

The 2016 LED A.R.T. Symposium will be held from November 29–December 1, 2016 at the Crowne Plaza Midtown in Atlanta, Georgia.

The event will feature keynote presentations by Makarand H. (Dr. Chips) Chipalkatti, Ph.D of Dr. Chips Consulting LLC, and Gary Feather of NanoLumens.

It will also feature workshops on LED failure mechanisms, reliability and qualification; LED interconnects for die packaging and luminaire assembly; and low-cost high-reliability solder materials.

What Makes a Good Process Engineer?

03/03/2021 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
Nolan Johnson recently spoke with Tuan Tran, director of customer solutions at Green Circuits, about what makes a successful process engineer. They also discuss a typical day in the life of a process engineer—from pre-manufacturing through post-DFM, for process improvement. As Tuan points out, there are a variety of paths to becoming a great process engineer.
