E-Mobility a Driver of Topics at IPC APEX EXPO

Reading time ( words)

E-Mobility is a challenging new paradigm for electronics design. Regardless of industry, automotive, two-wheeler, vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL), rail, or marine, e-Mobility presents new challenges that the electronics supply chain is working together to resolve.

You can find the latest information on e-Mobility at several technical sessions at IPC APEX EXPO 2023.

The IPC APEX EXPO Technical Conference will host an engaging special session focused on e-Mobility touching on supply chain and technology issues. The e-Mobility Special Session includes speakers and panelists from Rivian. Overall, the technical conference offers many technical papers advising on assembly and design for high reliability. A few highlights include

IPC standards development task groups will be diligently working to advance manufacturing and design standards in the areas of high voltage. The test methods task group will celebrate the release of the new test method for high voltage testing. Task groups of interest are the 7-31BV: J-STD-001 and IPC-A-610 Automotive Addendum7-31FHV: IPC/WHMA-A-620 High-Voltage Cable Addendum Task GroupD-33AA: IPC-6012 Automotive Addendum, or 5-21M: Cold Joining/Press-fit Task Group.

Professional Development Workshops take place on Sunday, January 22, and Monday, January 23, including PD28: Press-fit Technology - Value Chain, Physics, Process and Standards which provides insight into the production, design, and application of compliant press-fit pins and components as well as new materials and surface finish technologies.  

In addition, of interest to those electrifying and advancing systems within vehicles, IPC is hosting an E-Textiles Conference, collocated with IPC APEX EXPO on Sunday January 22.

Scaling Beyond Silicon

01/26/2023 | Ashutosh Mauskar, Cadence Design Systems
Technology has always invoked radical changes, but unlike today, there used to be one major revolutionizing technology trend at a time. The world is becoming increasingly connected, more automated and more intelligent, driven by generational drivers—hyperscale computing, 5G, artificial intelligence and machine learning (AI/ML), industrial IoT (IIoT), and autonomous vehicles—which are invoking disruptive technological forces on vertical markets, unfolding varied levels of microelectronics and digital transformation across the globe. The increasing demand for miniaturization and higher speed is changing the dynamics of the semiconductor components needed to store and process data.

Altium Focuses on Design Education

Altium keeps its eyes on the designers of the future. The company has been working with colleges and universities for years, providing free seats of Altium Designer for the next generation of PCB designers and design engineers. At IPC APEX EXPO 2023, Altium will be providing software for the finalists in the IPC Design Competition just as it did last year. They offer a variety of other educational programs as well, including Upverter classes and a design competition that aims to address environmental change. Here, Rea Callender, Altium’s VP of education, discusses its educational programs and plans for the week of the show.

I-Connect007 Editor’s Choice: Five Must-Reads for the Week

01/06/2023 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007
The youngsters are back in school, and we’re all back to work. The water is back on for most of us in Atlanta; when temps dropped down to 8 degrees Fahrenheit, our pipes started bursting left and right. After a Christmas dinner with no water, I have a new appreciation for H2O. It’s been a busy week, and we published a variety of articles, columns, and news items. In this week’s top five, we have news about the market in Southeast Asia, a look at what the CHIPS Act really entails, a deep dive into CMMC, and a peek at how printed electronics developers are using flexible circuit concepts to facilitate PEC. We also say goodbye to a Top Gun PCB designer who left us way too soon.
