Call for Participation: IPC Electronics Materials Forum 2019


Reading time ( words)

IPC invites you to present at the upcoming IPC Electronics Materials Forum which will be held November 5–7, 2019 in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

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).

Seven Key Steps to Selecting a New EMS Partner

08/14/2019 | Neil Sharp, JJS Manufacturing
Choosing to outsource your electronics manufacturing to an EMS provider requires careful planning and consideration. And even once you’ve made your decision, there may still be things that test you or that don’t go quite to plan. An experienced EMS partner has been there before; they understand the challenges, and they’ll be able to support you through the process to ensure you achieve your goals.

Which Matters Most: Unit Cost or Total Cost of Supply?

08/09/2019 | Neil Sharp, JJS Manufacturing
The primary objective for any OEM is to design, manufacture, and deliver high-quality products in the most cost-effective way possible. When demand patterns change, or there is an increase in competition, it can be easy to rely on the calculation of unit cost to relieve the price pressure. But, as many manufacturers are discovering, choosing to base their outsourcing decisions purely on unit cost may not always reap the expected benefits in the long term.

How Do I Get Smart With IPC CFX? (Part 2)
