Harsh environment electronics workshop announced
Jun 12, 2006
Co-sponsored by SMTA and Auburn University (CAVE), the Harsh Environment Electronics Workshop will be held July 19-20 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel - Indianapolis (IN) and addresses the concerns related to harsh environment electronics and the challenges within the vehicle electronics community. The event is intended to bring together the needs of "end-users" with the capabilities from the research community and the industrial supply base.
In particular, the workshop addresses the challenges of meeting expanding temperature ranges (-55C to +150C/+200C) with increased vibration, higher packaging density, and longer reliability. Next generation requirements for automotive electronics are explored from the systems level and potential supply based solutions are presented.
In addition, industrial needs for non-automotive vehicle requirements will be addressed, and session topics include the following:
-- Automotive Systems
-- Harsh Environment Materials
-- Solder Reliability for Harsh Applications
-- IC Packaging
-- Harsh Environment Systems
-- Electronics Systems Modeling
The final session of the workshop will feature a panel discussion focusing on miniaturization and heat dissipation.
