Reading time ( words)

The SMTA announced the call for participation for the International Conference for Electronics Hardware Enabling Technologies (ICEHET) held on June 2-4, 2020 in Markham, ON, Canada. The deadline to submit an abstract is January 24, 2020.

The ICEHET Technical Committee intends to continue the tradition of technical excellence, and broaden the scope to the wider enabling technologies, including design for assembly, test and reliability (DfX), packaging, assembly challenges for high density PCBs and components, conformal coating and other methods to achieve high reliability in aggressive environments.

Speakers can choose from three format options to present their research. A short, 15-minute presentation format is now available for supplier presentations on new technology. The standard 30-minute format now offers a choice of technical presentation or paper presentation; however, only papers are eligible for the “Best of Conference” awards.

Recent programs have included presentations from 3M, Celestica, Collins Aerospace, IBM Corporation, ON Semiconductor, Plexus Corp., numerous universities, and many other companies from around the globe.
