IPC APEX EXPO Reflections

Reading time ( words)

The sun may have risen and set on the 2020 edition of IPC APEX EXPO, but the developments from the week in San Diego certainly will linger with us for some time.

On the technical program side of the house, the feedback was that the technical papers were well received. Likewise, the new Sessions @ The Intersection series was executed well. The Emerging Engineer and STEM Student Outreach Programs added new dimensions to the event, reminding us all that there is a wave of budding expertise coming up behind the aging vanguard of the industry.

On the show floor, exhibitors reported high interest from attendees even if the numbers seemed a little down from last year. One exhibitor reported that, while they saw fewer people overall, they were taking home more leads than last year.

With so much news and information, no one person could have taken it all in. That’s where we help.

Nolan Johnson and Barry Matties talked with Axiom’s Rob Rowland and Kevin Bennett about current challenges facing EMS manufacturing. During this conversation, the pair discuss the impact of data file formats on pricing, manufacturing, and quality. As they explain, the use of intelligent data formats such as IPC-2581 and ODB++ can speed up the data import process compared to Gerber.

SMTA Atlanta: Peachy in the Peach State

04/27/2022 | Andy Shaughnessy, I-Connect007
I attended SMTA Atlanta Expo and Tech Forum last week, and it’s safe to say that this industry is definitely back in business in the Peach State. The aisles were busy all day, and the presentations were well attended.

How Smart Are You?

04/25/2022 | Michael Ford, Aegis Software Corp.
The standard IQ test has been established for many years now. Though the content within these tests has been cleverly and carefully put together, there are different kinds of “smarts” among people. It is likely that those who are putting together IQ tests will favor the kinds of “smarts” that they themselves have. Humans are very complex, however. Everyone is different, with natural skills and abilities in a multitude of disciplines: technical, artistic, social, and others. Put us all together as a society, and we make a pretty good team, at least when we all work together and support each other.
