SMTA, iNEMI, MEPTEC Seek Presenters for 2018 Medical Electronics Symposium


Reading time ( words)

The 2017 Medical Electronics Symposium will be held at University of Texas at Dallas, on May 16-17, 2018. SMTA, iNEMI, and MEPTEC have again joined forces to host the International Symposium, which will focus on innovation in electronic technologies and advanced manufacturing specifically targeting medical and bioscience applications. The Symposium will be chaired by Chuck Richardson of the International Electronics Manufacturing Initiative (iNEMI).

Presenters are invited to speak on such topics as implantable devices, diagnostic equipment, personal monitoring, and drug delivery, as well as biosensors, microfluidics, wireless communications and microelectromechanical systems (MEMS). The Symposium will cover design, miniaturization, materials, manufacturability, test, reliability, and regulatory compliance for Class II and III medical electronics. Other relevant topics include emerging technologies such as stretchable electronics, wireless body area networks, biosensors in novel applications and nanoelectromechanical systems (NEMS).

Suggested Topics:

  • Flexible/stretchable circuitry in Medical Electronics
  • Devices/Sensors/Security - Connected Health Security
  • Business and Market Trends in Medical Electronics
  • Medical Electronic Product Design
  • Medical Diagnostic & Imaging
  • Wearables in Healthcare
  • IoT Solutions for Medical Technologies
  • Medical Assembly/test
  • Miniaturization
  • Reliability Concerns in Medical Products
  • Biological Compatibility
  • Electronic Prosthetics

The abstract and presentation must be non-commercial in nature and emphasize the medical technology and not the company portfolio.  There is no technical paper requirement for this symposium. Presentations are due on November 1, 2017.

Editor Nolan Johnson and Subodh discuss CyberOptics’ latest precision 3D systems, such as the SQ3000, which offers AOI, SPI and CMM functionalities. The inline CMM system includes top-of-the-line software for metrology grade measurements of critical points. Subodh points out that some of his competitors even utilize CyberOptics sensors in their equipment.

Global Political Turmoil Creating Uncertainties for the Industry

11/20/2019 | Chris Mitchell, IPC Vice President of Global Government Relations
From where I sit, representing the interests of electronics manufacturers and related companies around the world, I regret to say that the future of our industry—while bright overall—is fraught with uncertainties, from trade policy disputes to government leadership turnovers and economic and social megatrends. IPC is working with all governments and parties to overcome these uncertainties, but there is a lot to tackle.
