Kids back in school? Check.

New issues of I-Connect007 magazines downloaded? Check.

Keys, wallet, phone? Check, check, check.

So, what’s missing? Ah, that’s right, it’s time to start planning your trade show attendance. To help you make decisions about when and where to go, we’ve put together a list of industry trade shows. It has been two long years with no or few in-person trade shows, and we’ve felt it. 

Hats off to the associations and other industry leaders that have pulled off virtual trade shows during the pandemic. But let’s face it: Zoom trade shows could never replicate the feel and energy of a live show. We humans crave personal interaction, and live trade shows and conferences offer networking opportunities that just don’t exist on our computer screens. 

So, now we’re back in business and ready to hit the road. Do you have a show or conference to add to our list? Let us know!

Book Excerpt: 'The Printed Circuit Assembler’s Guide to… Solder Defects'

06/07/2022 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
Solder defects in surface-mount technology (SMT) assembly have been an issue for decades. Further, the combined challenges of Pb-free soldering and ever-increasing miniaturization have resulted in new or exacerbated defects in electronics assembly, but there are proven ways to avoid defects. This book will be especially beneficial to PCB assemblers in improving their assembly processes and the reliability of the end-product, eliminating field failures, and reducing costs.

How to Minimize Quoting Time and Increase Accuracy in EMS Production

03/30/2022 | Mark Laing, Siemens Digital Industries Software
New product introductions (NPIs) and customization have been increasing rapidly over the past few years—with the results that the already-small profit margins in electronics assembly are shrinking even further. Fifteen years ago, the PCB was the product. Today, most products are a system, with multiple PCBs, cables, and enclosures. Many manufacturers want to provide turn-key products that have multiple BOMs, making the assembly process even more complicated.

A Hard Look at Strategic Chip Investment

03/03/2022 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
Jan Vardaman is a key contributing author to an IPC report detailing the capabilities gap in advanced packaging capabilities in the U.S. manufacturing ecosystem. We talked with Jan about the report and the current dynamics in the U.S. market. Jan’s comments provide additional detail and insight to the findings published in the report.
