Updated Program for EIPC 50th Anniversary Conf Now AvailableMay 22, 2018 | EIPC
Estimated reading time: 1 minute
The past, the present and the future—these the three elements of EIPC’s 50th anniversary conference being held in Dusseldorf in June this year. Half a century has passed since EIPC was founded in the days when the PCB was more than just a commodity.
At the upcoming conference to be held in Dusseldorf, Germany, there will be a first-class show on June 21–22, with the conference on Day 1 culminating with a visit to Unimicron’s new multilayer factory in Geldern, the Tate Modern of the European PCB industry. This will be followed by a celebration dinner at the 14th Century listed and moated Walbeck Castle.
Day 1 will be the occasion in which Paul Waldner looks back over 50 years in the industry, while Hans Friedrichkreit unveils his metric crystal ball to compete with the imperial one that Walt Custer usually produces. From then on, there will be a wealth of technological discussions on topics such as traceability, PCB 4.0, and halogen-free laminates.
Day 2 is dedicated to flex for 5G, curved and stretchable PCBs, open-source language, organic surface preservatives, and lab-on-PCB technology, as well as the traditional glimpses into developments in applications, chemistries and supply chain management.

Registration is now open for Electrical Wire Processing Technology Expo (EWPTE) an exclusive, free-of-charge* event for the electrical wire harness, wire, coil winding and cable processing industries, to be held at Baird Center May 14-16, 2024, in Milwaukee, Wis.
On the cusp of another IPC APEX EXPO, we focus on how bare board fabricators can maximize their time and investment at the show. We visited with Matt Kelly, IPC chief technologist, and Julia Gumminger, IPC professional development and events manager, as well as Udo Welzel and Stanton Rak, the chairs of the technical program committee, to discuss the technical depth and breadth that the 2024 show will bring to fabricators and professionals all along the supply chain.
Green Circuits, a full-service Electronics Manufacturing Services (EMS) partner to leading OEMs, proudly announces its participation in the Satellite 2024 Conference & Exhibition, scheduled to take place March 19-21, 2024 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, DC.
On Tuesday, January 30, considered “day zero” of DesignCon 2024, I caught up with Suzanne Deffree, group event director, during the Samtec welcome reception. She gave me an update on the event, particularly the launch of an initiative called 40 Under 40, a years-long effort to enable the next generation of engineers, and their interest in sustainability. We also talked about Drive World, and the important new focus on electric vehicles.
The SMTA is pleased to announce the Best Papers from SMTA International 2023. The winners were selected by members of the conference technical committee.
