SMT Perspectives and Prospects: Critical Materials—A Compelling Case, Part 3

01/17/2024 | Dr. Jennie Hwang -- Column: SMT Perspectives and Prospects
New tumultuous forces involving geopolitical pull and technological and market push have emerged since I published the first two parts of this topic in February and May 2022, respectively. Here, I will consider the impact of these new forces. Critical materials and minerals that are the foundation for essential goods have long been sourced from areas with wars or near-wars and some unfriendly nations; this causes high-risk concerns.

Pete Starkey’s Five Must-Reads of 2023

12/27/2023 | Pete Starkey, I-Connect007
I must say, this has been a good year. We were free at last from COVID travel restrictions and obligatory face masks. This means I have been able to get out and about, network with colleagues in the industry, and report on some notable presentations from distinguished technical specialists in Europe. It has been a difficult job choosing a “top five” from such a multiplicity and diversity of high-quality papers, but here’s my selection.

RTX, DARPA to Revolutionize Gallium Nitride Technology for Improved Radio Frequency Sensors

11/17/2023 | Raytheon Company
Raytheon, an RTX business, has been awarded a four-year, $15 million contract from DARPA to increase the electronic capability of radio frequency sensors with high-power-density Gallium Nitride transistors which will have 16 times higher output than traditional GaN with no increase in operating temperature. Raytheon is partnering with the Naval Research Laboratory, Stanford University and Diamond Foundry to grow diamond, the world's best thermal conductor, for integration with military-grade GaN transistors and circuits. Cornell University, Michigan State University, the University of Maryland and Penn State University are also providing technology and performance analysis.

StratEdge Corporation will present its thermally-efficient line of post-fired and molded ceramic semiconductor packages at several upcoming events including European Microwave Week (EuMW), September 19-21, IMAPS International, October 3-4, and IEEE BCICTS, October 16-17.

An Exclusive Review of the Institute of Circuit Technology’s Annual Symposium

06/15/2023 | Pete Starkey, I-Connect007
After a long crawl through heavy traffic on the M42 motorway, it was a great relief to exit at Junction 6 and arrive at the National Conference Centre for the 2023 Annual Symposium of the Institute of Circuit Technology on June 6. The conference center is co-located with the historic National Motorcycle Museum and situated in the heart of the UK midlands, a stone’s throw from Birmingham International Airport. The delegates were welcomed by technical director Bill Wilkie.
