iNEMI Roadmap Highlights Series

Portable & Wireless - Wednesday, May 6, 2020
Smart Manufacturing - Wednesday, May 13, 2020

Webinars are open to anyone; advance registration is required.

Portable & Wireless

Highlights of iNEMI’s Portable & Wireless chapter will include critical factors that enable portable and wireless devices to continue leading electronics manufacturing in production volumes and technical breakthroughs. A variety of key products and services offered in the portable and wireless space demand innovations in advanced packaging, design and miniaturization. Transitioning from 4G LTE to 5G mmWave-based communications protocols introduces unique challenges that are expected to drive disruptive changes in packaging, testing strategies and integration trends in smartphone and other portable chipsets. Major trends such as cost and form factor, co-design and tool needs, shifts in the supply chain structure, and the impact of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) in the mobile space will be presented.

Smart Manufacturing

This high-level overview of iNEMI’s Smart Manufacturing chapter includes such topics as the industry’s current state of technologies as well as the gaps and challenges facing the implementation of Industry 4.0 and smart manufacturing practices. Smart manufacturing enabling technologies (e.g., big data analytics, artificial intelligence, cloud/edge computing, robotics, automation, IoT) will improve efficiency, safety and productivity in manufacturing. This webinar will summarize industry status across semiconductor, outsourced system assembly and test, and printed circuit board assembly sectors. It will also look at the key enabling technology needs in security, data flow architecture, and digital building blocks (e.g., artificial intelligence, machine learning and digital twin).

This Month in SMT007 Magazine: Test and Measurement in a Smart Factory

11/03/2020 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
Nolan Johnson spoke with MIRTEC President Brian D’Amico about how the role of test and measurement equipment is changing in the smart factory and how shops can adjust to make use of the new technology. D’Amico shares this insight: “While approximately 90% of U.S. electronics manufacturers recognize the potential of Industry 4.0 to improve productivity, many are slow to adopt smart factory solutions within the manufacturing process.”
