F01 iNEMI: Optimizing Lead Free Processes
Tuesday, 2/20/2007 1:30 PM - 3:00 PM
David Godlewski, iNEMI; Denis Barbini, Vitronics Soltec; Jasbir Bath, Solectron Corporation; Richard Coyle, Lucent Technologies, Inc.; Robert Kinyanjui, Sanmina-SCI Corp
The electronics industry has been preparing to go lead free for several years, but the transition to lead free manufacturing is really just beginning. Much work remains to be done to optimize the conversion from eutectic solder and to achieve the same knowledge we have with tin lead processes. This free forum will review some of iNEMI's lead free projects that focus on lead free processes in areas such as wave soldering, rework, mixed soldering and surface finishes.
F02 Technology Roadmapping - A Look Toward the Future
Tuesday, 2/20/2007 3:15 PM - 4:45 PM
John Fisher, Interconnect Technology Analysis, Inc.; Dieter Bergman, IPC; Greg Munie, Ph.D., Kester Northrop Grumman; Dennis Fritz, MacDermid, Inc.
Here is a tremendous opportunity for all attendees to learn about the new IPC International Technology Roadmap for 2006/2007. Presentations will highlight the various concepts used for developing the new roadmap and how it mirrors other roadmaps for the semiconductor industry and the OEM customer. We will discuss the paradigm shifts necessary to meet the new criteria for higher bandwidth and restrictive substance regulations. In addition, miniaturization will be a top issue as one of the major performance criteria.
F03 The Total Packaging Solution under Jisso
Wednesday, 2/21/2007 9:00 AM - 10:00 AM
Joe Fjelstad, Silicon Pipe, Inc.; Richard Otte, PROMEX Industries, Inc.; Edmund Blackshear, IBM Corporation; Dennis Fritz, MacDermid, Inc.
This session will address the topic of Jisso, a Japanese word that represents the total packaging solution for new product development and introduction. The process starts with the original design and incorporates decisions for electronic elements, electronic packaging and modules before moving to the final product and system. The Jisso North America Council (JNAC) is a feeder to the international group, which is composed of delegates from Europe and Asia. The presentations will show the data flow between the various experts as they establish new processes, new standards, and methodology to meet the challenges of the future.
