The Tehnici de Interconectare in Electronica (Interconnection Techniques for Electronics) PCB design conference takes place April 20-23 in Suceava, Romania. Joe Fjelstad, founder of Verdant Electronics, will give the keynote speech titled, “An Overview of Electronic Manufacturing Technology Evolution and Trends.” The keynote will kick off the awards ceremony on the evening of April 22.
The event brings together the leaders of Romania’s academia and the electronics industry, culminating in a PCB design contest for college students. Thirteen universities will send three PCB designers each to TIE. The students will spend four days in PCB design workshops and compete in a design contest known as “The Olympic Games for PCB Designers.” Winners are awarded a “PCB Designer Certificate of Competence.”
The TIE conference was founded by Dr. Paul Svasta, a professor of electrical and electronic manufacturing at Politehnica University of Bucharest – CETTI. This year marks the 25th TIE conference.

It’s easy to get distracted in an election year. A constant stream of polls, primaries, and political prognostications will surely dominate the media cycle. Elections are important, but they should not distract the 118th Congress from the important work of securing our fragile supply chains and rebuilding microelectronics manufacturing capacity on our own shores.
IPC’s efforts in government relations and advocacy have been pivotal in getting legislation like the CHIPS Act passed. In February, IPC President and CEO Dr. John W. Mitchell was back in Washington, D.C., representing our industry in a meeting convened by the U.S. Department of Commerce, where he discussed workforce issues in our industry and how to ensure that our businesses have the workforce they need. In this audio interview, he reviews his concerns and solutions on workforce development.
Sentiment among electronics manufacturers remains positive, despite minor setbacks during January, according to IPC’s February Sentiment of the Global Electronics Manufacturing Supply Chain Report.
The global semiconductor manufacturing industry recovery is taking hold with electronics and IC sales increasing in the final quarter of 2023 and more growth projected for 2024, SEMI announced in its fourth quarter 2023 publication of the Semiconductor Manufacturing Monitor (SMM) report, prepared in partnership with TechInsights.
