Indium Corporation’s Andy C. Mackie, PhD, MSc, Senior Product Manager for Semiconductor and Advanced Assembly Materials, will present at the 2017 Automotive Electronics Council (AEC) Annual Reliability Workshop April 18-20 in Novi, Mich. 

Dr. Mackie will present Semiconductor Assembly: Modular and SMT Materials Reliability for Evolving Automotive Electronics Applications. This paper includes technical discussions on the reliability of SMT materials in automotive assembly. 

Dr. Mackie is an electronics industry expert in physical chemistry, surface chemistry, rheology, and semiconductor assembly materials and processes. He has more than 20 years of experience in new product and process development, and materials marketing in all areas of electronics manufacturing, from wafer fabrication to semiconductor packaging and electronics assembly. Dr. Mackie has a doctorate in physical chemistry from the University of Nottingham, U.K., and a Master of Science in Colloid and Interface Science from the University of Bristol, U.K. He is also formally trained in Six Sigma – Design of Experiments. 

The Automotive Electronics Council (AEC) was created for the purpose of establishing common part-qualification and quality-system standards. A subset of the organization, the AEC Component Technical Committee is the standardization body for establishing the benchmarks for reliable, high-quality electronic components.
