Indium Corporation’s Dr. Ron Lasky, Senior Technologist, has created a new SMT IQ Test for new or veteran industry professionals looking for a fun way to measure their surface mount technology (SMT) knowledge.

The free test, which features 10 multiple-choice questions, can be accessed on Dr. Lasky’s blog and Indium Corporation’s LinkedIn account. Based on the number of correct results, respondents will be ranked from SMT Trainee (three correct answers or fewer) all the way up to SMT Guru (for those who achieve a perfect score).

Five lucky participants will be randomly selected to win a $25 digital gift card. Respondents will have to provide their email address when completing the survey in order to be eligible.

He has more than 30 years of experience in electronics and optoelectronics packaging at IBM, Universal Instruments, and Cookson Electronics. Dr. Lasky has authored six books, and contributed to nine more, on science, electronics, and optoelectronics, and has authored numerous technical papers. Additionally, he has served as an adjunct professor at several colleges, teaching more than 20 different courses on topics ranging from electronics packaging, materials science, physics, mechanical engineering and science, and religion. Dr. Lasky holds numerous patent disclosures and is the developer of several SMT processing software products relating to cost estimating, line balancing, and process optimization. He is the co-creator of engineering certification exams that set standards in the electronics assembly industry worldwide. Dr. Lasky was awarded the Surface Mount Technology Association’s Founder’s Award in 2003. Dr. Lasky holds four degrees, including a Ph.D. from Cornell University in materials science, and is a licensed professional engineer.

Thriving Through Greater EMS Collaboration

08/23/2022 | Chris Peters, USPAE
Events of the past two years have clearly demonstrated the value of strong trading relationships. When materials become constrained, as in the recent microchip shortage or any of the pandemic-driven supply chain snafus, the companies that have those materials have a choice to make. Which customers will be put at the front of the line, and which will be placed at the rear? Too often, company executives assume that since they are a large buyer, they automatically will be prioritized when supplies are constrained. Research has shown that this is not always the case, and that assumption can leave a company in a weakened position.
