IPC Issues Call for Participation for IPC APEX EXPO 2022


Reading time ( words)

IPC invites engineers, researchers, academics, technical experts and industry leaders to submit abstracts for IPC APEX EXPO 2022 to be held at the San Diego Convention Center. Professional development courses will take place January 23, 24 and 27, 2022 and the technical conference will take place January 25–27, 2022.

The industry’s premier conference and exhibition for the electronics industry, IPC APEX EXPO provides presenters and their companies with a notable and cost-effective opportunity to promote their expertise and gain visibility with key engineers, managers and executives from all segments of the industry worldwide. To recognize exceptional achievement, awards will be presented for “Best Paper."

Expert papers and presentations are being sought in the following areas: factory of the future implementation; circuit design and component technologies; quality, reliability, test and inspection; enabling future technologies; meeting extreme environments; electronics materials; conscientious engineering; assembly processes; and PCB fabrication and materials. For specific topics under each area, visit www.ipcapexexpo.org/CFP.

An approximate 300-word technical conference abstract summarizing original and previously unpublished work covering case histories, research and discoveries must be submitted. The submission should describe significant results from experiments and case studies, emphasize new techniques, discuss trends of interest and contain appropriate technical test results. 

In addition, course proposals are solicited from individuals interested in presenting half-day (three-hour) professional development courses on design, manufacturing processes and materials.

Technical conference paper abstracts are due June 18, 2021. Professional development course proposals are due July 16, 2021. To submit an abstract or course proposal, visit www.IPCAPEXEXPO.org/CFP.

This week, we bring you a wide swath of news, columns, and articles from the past week. Altium announced a new cloud platform that connects design stakeholders with users of its Altium 365 environment. Cadence Design Systems has acquired a company that develops computational fluid dynamics technology to help expand its system analysis offerings.

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

03/05/2021 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
A perennial and yet irregular category on the popular game show Jeopardy is “potpourri.” My dad, as I was growing up, pronounced the word as “pot-poury.” It wasn’t until I was a sophomore in college that my girlfriend’s mom—who had a penchant for a soupcon of French euphemism in her tête-à-têtes—pronounced the word properly: “po-pu-ree.” Such are the risks of growing up just a bit rural.

Chapter 2 Excerpt from the Book ‘Thermal Management: A Fabricator's Perspective’

12/21/2020 | Anaya Vardya, American Standard Circuits
Insulated metal PCBs (IMPCB) or metal-clad PCBs (MCPCB) are a thermal management design that utilizes a layer of solid metal to dissipate the heat generated by the various components on the PCBs. When metal is attached to a PCB, the bonding material can either be thermally conductive but electrically isolative (IMPCBs or MCPCBs), or in the case of RF/microwave circuits, the bonding material may be both electrically and thermally conductive. The reason that RF designers usually have the bonding material thermally and electrically conductive is that they are using this not only as a heat sink but also as part of the ground layer. The design considerations are quite different for these different applications.
