The Surface Mount Technology Association (SMTA) has unveiled the keynote presenters for the upcoming SMTA International 2016 conference, which will be held from September 25–29, 2016 at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, Illinois.

Daniel Kuhl of Seagate Technology will present “How is Your Storage?” for the SMTAI keynote address on September 27. He will talk about the BIG memory storage explosion and factors influencing global design and architecture, technology progression and infrastructure for manufacturing and validation.

At the Harsh Environments Keynote, Dwight Howard of Delphi will present “Advances in Autonomous Driving and V2X Technologies”. His presentation will highlight several key aspects of advancements in automotive technologies and systems, including complex system elements, integration and cognitive computing required for these systems to achieve operational capability; current state of the supporting subsystems and overall vehicle systems required to make these capabilities possible; few of the key lessons-learned from a ground-breaking, first-ever, trans-USA drive experiment conducted in 2015; and an outlook of the practical deployment of these advances into daily usage.

Intel Corp.’s Milena Vujosevic, PhD, will present on “Certification for the Future: Meeting Challenges of New Packaging Technologies in Rapidly Evolving Markets” at the Women's Leadership Program keynote. This presentation discusses a novel approach to the definition of requirements for package certifications. The developed methodology challenges the existing industry practices that are a basis of the industry certification standards. This new methodology leverages the knowledge of use conditions and fundamental physics, and couples it with advanced computational mechanics modeling. The special focus is on the essential role of the physics based damage metrics in scaling from use condition to test conditions and in design for reliability. This Knowledge-based Qualification methodology is discussed relative to Standards-Based Qualifications showing that Knowledge-Based Qualification provides a superior technical framework for enabling future packaging technologies and customer designs.

I really must hand it to Tanya Martin and Ryan Flaherty for pulling off something as audacious as a virtual version of SMTA International, which took place in cyberspace on September 28–30. SMTA did it in record time. A few months ago, SMTAI was still slated to be a live event in metro Chicago. When COVID-19 travel restrictions made a live event impossible, they stopped on a dime, switched to a virtual event, and never looked back.
