Indium Corporation Hosts Automotive Electronics Assembly and Packaging Webinar


Reading time ( words)

Indium Corporation’s Andy Mackie, PhD, MSc, Senior Product Manager for Semiconductor and Advanced Assembly Materials, will host an automotive electronics webinar as part of Indium Corporation’s InSIDER Series on Webex at 8 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. EST on Tuesday, July 28.

Over the last decade, the evolution of the automobile has been faster than ever before, and the 2020s promise even more rapid progress. The foreseen changes include the nature of car ownership, how the car is powered, increased safety, and driver automation. Each of these changes is only possible with advances in electronics hardware and systems, electronics assembly, and semiconductor packaging. In What’s Driving: Automotive Electronics Assembly and Packaging, Dr. Mackie will discuss the impact of these changes on electronics assembly and packaging, and the impact of mission profiles on component and system level reliability. A live Q&A session will immediately follow his presentation.

Indium Corporation’s InSIDER Series is a free program designed to deliver expert technical content, share industry knowledge, and promote professional growth using a virtual platform. 

Dr. Mackie is an electronics industry expert with a technical background in physical chemistry, surface chemistry, rheology, and semiconductor fabrication, and assembly materials and processes. His professional experience covers all aspects of electronics manufacturing from wafer fabrication to semiconductor packaging and SMT/electronics assembly. Dr. Mackie is also responsible for the development of Indium Corporation’s Applied Technology Roadmap. He is an invited international keynote speaker and has lectured internationally on subjects ranging from sub-ppb metals analysis in supercritical carbon dioxide to solder paste rheology, and holds patents in novel polymers, heterogeneous catalysis, and solder paste formulation. Dr. Mackie holds a PhD in physical chemistry from the University of Nottingham, UK, and a Master’s of Science (MSc) in colloid and interface science from the University of Bristol, UK. He is an alumnus of the UC Berkeley Product Management program.
